Congratulations on completing the course

Let’s take a moment to celebrate all that we have achieved together and reflect upon the process of the past two weeks.
I hope you enjoyed the course. You saw how we applied scientific principles to dating human fossils. You saw the three sites and how exciting the fossils are and their contribution to human evolution. I want to thank you for your contributions in the discussions, and I hope the discussions will go on past this course. Don’t forget to visit our website at Griffith University. Don’t be shy to contact us if you have more questions. And the website also gives you an update on our newest research and where we make contribution to all aspects of human evolution in genetics, in rock art, in archaeology, and so on. Of course, human evolution is a huge puzzle and dating is only one piece of it.
It puts the things in the right order.

Thanks for joining us for this short course. We hope that you’ve enjoyed the course and have broadened your understanding of the principles and methods of dating human evolution.
Looking back on our learning journey, we have covered a lot of ground in a very short period of time.
Now perhaps you’d like to take the opportunity to let us know how we did. Were there areas that you found to be overly technical? Did you find yourself wishing for more information? Less information? Were there parts that you really loved about the course? Was there anything that we could better?
ARCHE and Griffith University have prepared another course that you may also be interested in joining us for. This course is titled Introduction to forensic and bio-archaeology. As its title suggests, it takes a closer look at the forensic and archaeological analysis of human skeletons and considers some examples of the repatriation of human remains that have been discovered. It will run again before the end of the year – so keep an eye out.

Your task

We’d appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to let us know what you thought about our short course. We’d love to hear about your experiences and appreciate any feedback that you may have.
What has been the most meaningful, inspirational or valuable learning for you over the past two weeks?
