We have to pleasure to invite you to the upcoming training on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) organised with joint efforts by the University of Bremen, University of Tartu, University of Catania and University of Halle-Wittenberg. The training is part of the Erasmus+ Programme URGENT (Urban Resilience and Adaptation for India and Mongolia) and the Erasmus+ Programme MARE (Marine Coastal and Delta Sustainability for Southeast Asia).
A three day training is scheduled for June 30th – July 2nd (see agenda below) via the online platform Zoom.
The interactive training aims at introducing key aspects of “Information and Communications Technology” to the participants and will be delivered by the European partners of both the MARE and the URGENT project. The training contains theoretical input by lecturers, practical group exercises for the participants and additional information and input from experts from the field of ICT. As part of the training, participants will be introduced to the topic of ICTs, their growing importance in society and academia as well as will receive detailed and in-depth knowledge on important and popular ICT methodologies (e.g. Geo-Information Systems, Lecture Recordings, Web-based Learning Platforms, etc.).
Specific objectives of the training are to strengthen capacities of participants and fellow project members, to enhance cooperation between partners and to provide specific scientific knowledge and examples on describing, using and understanding ICTs. A particular focus will lie on the rise of ICTs in particular during the ongoing global pandemic and the lessons learned during this period.
