Starting into 'Learning with Geoinformation' for all teachers

From today, all teachers, regardless of subject, now have the chance to earn a certificate in 'Learning with Geoinformation'. This set of 12+12 ECTS electives is jointly offered by the University of Salzburg with the Pedagogical University and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and accessible for pre-service as well as in-service teachers.

Geospatial media are acknowledged as valuable, effective and challenging learning environments in Geography, Ecology, History, Science, Computing and many other disciplines. As an innovative teacher training initiative, the 'Learning with Geoinformation' programme is an integral component of the Digital:Earth:AT framework for learning and teaching excellence in Geoinformatics and Geography.
