Overall aims and purpose

Cwrs gwaith maes wythnos o hyd yn y DU yw’r modiwl hwn, ac mae'n bosib y bydd yn cynnwys gwaith maes preswyl. Bydd myfyrwyr yn mynd ar gyfres o ymweliadau maes, fydd yn archwilio’r modd y mae pobl wedi ymelwa ar yr amgylchedd, gan gyfeirio’n benodol at adnoddau’r ddaear a’r diwydiannau cloddio. Nod y modiwl yw rhoi cyfle i fyfyrwyr ddefnyddio dulliau damcaniaethol a thechnegol yn y maes a deall sut mae prosesau naturiol a sosio-economaidd, a ellir eu hystyried yn rhai 'cyffredinol', wedi eu cyflyru gan natur gymdeithasol ac amgylcheddol lle penodol. Fel rhan greiddiol o’r modiwl, bydd gofyn i fyfyrwyr ddysgu sgiliau astudio yn y maes er mwyn arsylwi a chasglu data meintiol ac ansoddol.

Course content

  1. Cyd-destun daearegol y broses o ffurfio adnoddau’r ddaear
  2. Defnyddio adnoddau’r ddaear: yn cynnwys, rhywfaint neu’r cwbl o’r canlynol: glo, metelau cyffredin, mawn, caolin,
  3. Effeithiau amgylcheddol defnyddio adnoddau.
  4. Perthynas sosio-economaidd defnyddio adnoddau: twf a dirywiad.
  5. Dulliau o adfywio sosio-economaidd.
  6. Materion yn ymwneud â chynllunio wrth adfywio.

Assessment Criteria

threshold

Mae gan y myfyriwr ddealltwriaeth sylfaenol o’r egwyddorion a gwybodaeth sylfaenol am y pwnc. Trafodir gwybodaeth berthnasol mewn dyfnder sylfaenol yn yr aseiniad a’r tasgau ysgrifenedig. Nodir mwyafrif y materion allweddol, ond efallai bod rhai bylchau o ran dealltwriaeth. Nid yw’r cysylltiad rhwng theori ac ymarfer wedi ei ddatblygu’n effeithiol.

good

Mae’r myfyriwr yn dangos gwybodaeth gadarn am y pwnc, y gallu i gyfrannu’n adeiladol at y ddadl a’r gallu i ysgrifennu adroddiadau craff gyda dadleuon da. Yn cyflwyno gwybodaeth yn ddisgrifiadol yn yr aseiniadau a’r tasgau ysgrifenedig.

excellent

Nid oes unrhyw feysydd pwysig wedi eu hepgor ac mae’r myfyriwr yn dangos y gallu i ddadansoddi a gwerthuso gwybodaeth berthnasol yn feirniadol. Arddull gyflwyno eglur, gryno a ddisgrifiadol yn yr aseiniad a’r tasgau ysgrifenedig.

Learning outcomes

  1. Gallu enghreifftio ac asesu effaith defnyddio adnoddau’r ddaear ar amgylcheddau ffisegol a chymdeithasol.

  2. Dealltwriaeth ymarferol o ddulliau ymchwil maes daearyddiaeth ddynol a ffisegol.

  3. Dangos agwedd feirniadol a dadansoddol tuag at yr amgylchedd naturiol a’r amgylchedd a reolir.

  4. Gwerthfawrogi'r berthynas rhwng amgylcheddau naturiol a dynol sydd o fudd i'r naill a'r llall
