Studies in Spatial Analysis (Salzburg, Austria), 11th Nov – 10th Dec in 2013

Work package 4 of the GE-UZ project aims to train teachers from the academic partner institutions in the discipline of GIS, Geodesy, and educational methods. Sixteen teachers from four Uzbek universities have been trained in spatial analysis methods and techniques during a four-week workshop at the University of Salzburg (PLUS), Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS), Austria from November 10 – December 7, 2013.

Several Z_GIS experts provided the most recent technological and methodological background to 16 Uzbek teachers, made them capable to sustain the MSc course after the project will be finished, and taught them the relevant knowledge of the academic content based on blended learning (using Moodle as LMS) with available e-learning materials supported with tutoring and field courses. A well-balanced workshop programme ranged from Teaching Methods, the Bologna framework and ECTS, Overview of Map Algebra, Distance Analysis, Interpolation using Geostatistics, visit of the Global GIS DAY, a Field Trip “Urban Development in Salzburg” to GIScience Teaching Methods was held.

The outcomes of the training:
