This interactive knowledge exchange workshop offers participants the opportunity to share knowledge, skills, resources, and training techniques on available marine Earth Observation (EO) data and tools. During the workshop, participants will work with trainers and other participants to create their own (learning) artefacts to use in their own training and education work.

Participants will be introduced to the wide range of training resources available from across the Copernicus marine training landscape and beyond. They will also take part in interactive activities and discussion sessions on relevant topics in training today, including online approaches, pedagogy, data access, and the use of software, programming, and cloud computing in Earth Observation.

The workshop will include asynchronous and synchronous activities using learning management systems, different types of media (video, webinars, social media), and live co-creation sessions, supporting flexible attendance and experience of a wide range of training approaches.


Applications are welcomed from anyone with current or upcoming training responsibilities in marine science, Earth observation or both.
