The Centre for Maritime Studies at the University of Turku (CMS) finalized a three-year project GET READY. The CMS’ main outputs were a curriculum for short-term professional training and examination of best practices on sustainable spatial planning in the Eastern Gulf of Finland. The training course provides a general level introduction of the principles and practices of sustainable spatial planning. It was based on the best practices identified by the project consortium.
At the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, in spring of 2020, universities in Europe moved to distance learning with very short notice and from different situations. The InCompEdu project collected experiences of teachers with an extensive survey: which challenges the sudden change created, solutions found and how online teaching methods developed during the pandemic.
Pros and cons on online teaching were discussed in an international workshop. The event gathered together over 50 academic teachers and experts of online teaching.
The Eastern Gulf of Finland hosts a variety of human activities as well as sites of cultural, historical and natural values. The geographically small coastal and marine area is rich with major ports, busy waterways, blue economy businesses activities, and a wide variety of leisure activities. Inevitably, environmental challenges cannot be avoided. Therefore, the needs and interests of different actors need to be considered and balanced, natural and cultural values should be preserved, environmental impacts mitigated, and efforts made to improve the state of the environment where needed.
The InCompEdu project is seeking an answer to this question: which kind of challenges there are at the European universities. The aim is to identify success stories and best practices, and to learn from each other. Please share your experiences on online teaching!
