The purpose of this training workshop, run by IOC/OTGA, EUMETSAT & Copernicus Marine Service, is to share knowledge, skills, resources and code so that attendees are independently able to train others on available EO tools. During the course, participants will work on creating their own (learning) artefact. This is an interactive knowledge exchange workshop, not a technical training event.
This is an online event with asynchronous and synchronous sessions. The estimated workload should be 5-8 hours/week, up to 25 hours in total across the 3 weeks. This is a hybrid workshop including 3 live (synchronous) sessions per week, complemented with materials and resources provided in asynchronous mode. It will also be possible to book 1-1 sessions with the trainers. The live sessions will include round table knowledge exchange sessions, allowing participants to share their EO teaching experiences.
This course is specifically designed for, and aimed at, those who conduct teaching / training on remote sensing in academic, operational, and/or commercial environments. Participants need not be experts in use of Sentinel-3 but should be comfortable accessing, visualising and processing remote sensing data and also have a clear role in teaching.
This workshop is intended to university teachers, mentors and tutors, as well as staff from National Oceanographic Data Centres and marine research/management institutions with EO-related training responsibilities.
As a prerequisite, participants must:
- Currently (or in very near future) have training or teaching responsibilities on marine EO: e.g. a university lecturer, a team manager responsible for in-house training, a research supervisor, a freelance consultant who runs customised training courses.
