Czech Republic: International Summer School

Czech Republic: International Summer School | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS – BACHELOR´S, MASTER´S AND Ph.D. STUDENTS

University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic -
Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters, Vodňany. 29 June to 24 July 2015.

The Summer School is a four-week course within which you are involved in a small research project, working in very well-equipped laboratories under the guidance of experienced researchers of the FFPW USB. The work in laboratories will be supplemented by many excursions to fish farms and visits to other interesting places. Professional, perfectly prepared lectures of leading Czech and foreign researchers represent another part of the Summer School´s program.

Another interesting aspect of the course is a stay in the international team. That is why we expect candidates with at least partial knowledge of the English language.
An accommodation (room + separate shower and toilet) and a full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner) are also provided by the FFPW USB.

Only 10 projects are available with registrations open until 28th March and notification of outcome no later than 15th April. 

Further details from http://web.frov.jcu.cz/en/ieeaic/international-school. ;

 

 

John Bostock's insight:

This looks like an excellent opportunity and I can highly recommend the staff and facilities.

Apprentice leads new wave of young blood into burgeoning aquaculture sector | Scotland: National Rural Network

Apprentice leads new wave of young blood into burgeoning aquaculture sector | Scotland: National Rural Network | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
News from Lantra Scotland
Simon MacLellan, the talented 24-year-old aquaculture trainee working for Marine Harvest in Lochaber and winner of the Lantra Scotland Aquaculture Learner of the Year Award 2013, is leading a new wave of Modern Apprentices into an expanding fisheries and aquaculture management sector.

With new Government targets for marine production set to increase to 210,000 tonnes and shellfish to 13,000 tonnes by 2020, there are significant and growing career opportunities for school leavers and college graduates looking for a challenging and highly skilled occupation.

The aquaculture industry is currently worth at least £800m per year across the UK, with over 560 aquaculture businesses employing nearly 6000 people. According to Lantra Scotland, the sector skills council for the land-based, environmental and aquaculture industries, about 50 percent of these are based in Scotland, with Scottish businesses employing about a third of the entire UK workforce.

The introduction of new talent into the sector has been spearheaded by the success of the Scottish Government’s Modern Apprenticeship programme, which provides a very successful route into work for young people and access to new talent for employers. The programme offers a unique mix of college-based learning and practical, on-the-job training, which gives young people all the theoretical and practical skill sets that they need to succeed in their chosen careers.

Aquaculture trainee Simon MacLellan is cutting his teeth at the sharp end of fisheries management, working with one of Scotland’s leading producers, Marine Harvest. He is employed in the salmon hatchery side of the business, whilst undertaking the theoretical part of his Modern Apprenticeship Level 3 at Inverness College. Simon said, "I chose aquaculture because I can see this is an industry that is only going to grow. Thankfully, as a society, we have come to realise that commercial fishing is unsustainable, and with only 2% of the world’s oceans farmed, this represents a big opportunity for us all. It is very satisfying to be part of an industry that is geared towards sustainable fish production and I believe being part of the Modern Apprenticeship programme has given me the ideal start to my career.”

Lynn MacFarlane, Training and Human Resources Officer at Marine Harvest, said, “As a company we are keen to support our staff with their learning, and we have found that doing the SVQ alongside working on the farm is an effective combination for gaining knowledge and learning skills.  Simon’s success as the Aquaculture Learner of the Year 2013 is a great inspiration for all our SVQ students. We have another employee, Jake Handley, who won Student of the Year for SVQ Aquaculture at Inverness College UHI earlier this year. So we are extremely pleased with how well staff are doing.”

Kevin Patrick, Interim Director of Lantra Scotland said, “The aquaculture sector in Scotland has grown steadily over the last few years, and we have seen a rise in demand for skilled personnel. The Aquaculture Modern Apprenticeship programme is a very effective route into work for young people, while providing them with access to new talent for employers. The framework is unique in that it provides a mix of college-based learning with practical, on-the-job training. This provides all the necessary theoretical and practical skill sets that young people need to succeed in their chosen careers.

"We’re also grateful to Marine Harvest for helping sponsor our land-based and aquaculture learner of the year awards, and to our main sponsor, the Scottish Salmon Company.”
John Bostock's insight:

Congratulations and good luck to Simon in his studies and career and good to see Marine Harvest and other companies supporting the Aquaculture Modern Apprenticeship Programme.

Designing and building dedicated Ph.D. courses contributing to international EU mobility at doctoral level - Online First - Springer | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

After the Bologna framework formally incorporated doctoral education in the three-cycle structure of degrees as part of its nine Action lines in the Berlin Ministers Communiqué in 2003 (Berlin 2003), the AQUA-TNET network devoted a significant part of its activities to follow the subsequent developments in order to help its members understand and meet the demands of the Bologna reforms at the doctoral level. To this end, the network carried out a series of detailed and comprehensive surveys of its members. Interestingly, the results of these independent surveys reveal close similarities with the EUA survey of Doctoral Programmes for the European Knowledge Society (2005) and the sets of guidelines known as the Salzburg Principles (EUA 2005b) and the Salzburg II Recommendations (EUA 2010). The article describes the measures taken by the AQUA-TNET network to design, develop and implement structured doctoral programmes for its members in response to the specific needs as identified by its academic and industry members from those surveys.

I'm really happy to post this first of several articles arising from the EU AQUA-TNET project.

ICES Training Course - Social Science Methods for Natural Scientists

ICES Training Course - Social Science Methods for Natural Scientists | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

13 - 16 October 2014,
ICES, Copenhagen, Denmark
Application Deadline: 29 September 2014

 

Research projects are increasingly interdisciplinary enterprises, with stakeholder processes and engagement with SMEs considered a priority. In this changing professional context, gaining relevant research skills is becoming a necessity.   Increasingly, natural scientists work with others, in our case, fishers; collaborating, communicating, and participating together to increase the knowledge base and policy relevance of our work. A consequence of this is a need for more targeted training in social science research methods, such as interviewing, observing, and mapping. This course will have a "learn by doing" set up. The facilitators provide guidance on the basics of the methods while participants develop their confidence in using them. Background information (such as the epistemology and ontology of the social sciences) and the underpinning social science theory will also be discussed for participants to learn more.

 

Objective 

Through gaining new skills, participants will be better able to work effectively with stakeholders in (cooperative) research projects, as well as having a better appreciation of the strengths of social sciences in fisheries research.

Level

It is assumed that scientists have a natural science background, have or will have experience with working in cooperative research projects, working with stakeholders or are otherwise interested in learning more about social science methods in fisheries science. No knowledge of social science is required.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks a very useful course for fisheries scientist who need to know more about social science research methods and stakeholder engagement

Introduction to mathematical modelling for the environmental and biological sciences

Introduction to mathematical modelling for the environmental and biological sciences | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

A 5-day course at the University of Stirling, School of Natural Sciences
Monday 16th to Friday 20th February 2015


Designed for PhD students and early-stage researchers with a biological background who wish to develop interdisciplinary skills in mathematical modelling for the life sciences.

The course aims to meet the needs of students in the biological sciences who are increasingly turning to mathematical modelling in the era of big data, the three Rs of animal testing, and remote sensing, but who may lack the background necessary to create their own mathematical or statistical models.


This course, run by mathematicians, physicists and ecologists with experience in epidemiology and terrestrial and marine ecology, will provide an introduction to basic modelling concepts and a guide to using common skills. You will be guided through the key steps of researching the question, formulating the model framework, parameterising the model, and model criticism.

John Bostock's insight:

This is particularly aimed at NERC funded students, but others may be eligible to participate.

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning: Web 2.0 Use in Higher Education

European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning: Web 2.0 Use in Higher Education | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

An article by Michelle Rogers-Estable on research carried out in the USA

"This study analyzed current uses of emerging Web 2.0 technologies in higher education with the intent to better understand which tools teachers are using in the classroom. A total of 189 faculty in higher education from three western US universities were invited to participate, with 54 completing the survey. The survey included open-ended questions as well to offer an alternative analysis approach. In this study, the respondents claimed that the intrinsic factors of a lack of time and training were the main barriers to use, and reported positive views of Web 2.0 use in class, with 75% saying that these tools would benefit students and 83% saying they would benefit teacher-student interactions. In contrast to these results only 44% of the respondents used at least 4 of the 13 listed Web 2.0 tools with students. The reported uses did not match with the reported benefits, and this would support the results that extrinsic factors (time, training, support), instead of intrinsic factors (beliefs, motivation, confidence) are the main barriers to faculty in this study using more Web 2.0 in education. The top five Web 2.0 tools used, in order of preference, follow: (a) video sharing with tools like YouTube; (b) instant messaging; (c) blogs; (d) social communities, such as Facebook; and (e) podcasts or video casts."

John Bostock's insight:

This mirrors Aqua-tnet findings in Europe, that lack of training and confidence in using Web 2.0 tools on the part of faculty (teachers) is one of the major constraints to wider adoption.

Remember the young ones: Improving career opportunities for Britain’s young people | IPPR

Remember the young ones: Improving career opportunities for Britain’s young people | IPPR | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
This report looks at five critical elements of the school-to-work transition for young people – the role of employers, vocational education, apprenticeships, careers guidance, and the benefits system – and at lessons the UK can learn from European economies with better youth employment records.

A long period without work at a young age can have a long-lasting effect on a person’s life chances, leading to a higher future likelihood of unemployment and lower future earnings. For this reason, UK policymakers should be particularly worried about the present level of youth unemployment. There are currently 868,000 young people aged 16–24 unemployed in the UK, and 247,000 of them have been looking for work for over a year.

This is not simply due to the financial crash and recession. While the last six or seven years have been particularly tough for the latest generation of young people, even before the financial crisis many of those entering the labour market for the first time were struggling to compete with older workers for jobs. This suggests that even a full-blown economic recovery is unlikely to solve the problem of youth unemployment in the UK.

John Bostock's insight:

Another report from the UK Institute for Policy Research on vocational education and the need for strong engagement between employers and the education system. The UK needs to learn lessons from elsewhere in Europe!

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

A new Eurobarometer survey on the 'European Area of Skills and Qualifications' (Special Eurobarometer 417) shows also that around a quarter (23%) of EU citizens feel that their education or training has not provided them with the skills to find a job in line with their qualifications. While over half of the respondents (56%) think their qualifications would be recognised in other Member States, 6% tried to work or study in another Member State but were unable to do so, either because their qualifications were not recognised by their prospective employer or education institution, or because the respondents lacked information about recognition of their qualifications abroad.


The survey's findings are echoed by the results of a separate Commission online consultation, 'Towards a European Area for Skills and Qualifications', aimed at education and training specialists. It collated views on the obstacles faced by people in having their skills and qualifications recognised across Europe and found that there is strong support for action to simplify European tools for recognition of skills and qualifications, to make them more coherent and easier to use, and to ensure a stronger focus on the needs of pupils, students, workers and employers. Respondents also call for more emphasis in education and training on what is learnt rather than the number of hours of instruction.

 

"Our objective is simple: everyone in Europe should be able to have their skills and qualifications understood and recognised, within and across national borders, by employers and educational institutions. They need to be recognised in a fair, comparable and transparent way, so that people's skills and qualifications improve their employability or open the way for further learning," said Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
BANGLADESH - As USAID’s annual letter this year notes, in development it is no longer enough to teach a farmer to grow a new crop—or in this case, to fish. Our work isn’t done until we help a farmer learn to run a successful business too. This is precisely what is happening in Bangladesh, writes Dylan Butler, Information Officer, USAID Office of Food for Peace.
