Aquaculture in action - NZ Educational Materials

Aquaculture in action - NZ Educational Materials | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The New Zealand Government has created the Aquaculture in Action, web-based educational resource (Aquaculture Fact Sheet) to provide students with meaningful social sciences and science learning opportunities. 

 

To bring the fact sheets into the classroom the resource also includes a teacher’s guide and how the resource links to the New Zealand Curriculum.

 

The lesson plans were developed for Years 7 through 10.

The plans were created to assist teachers in helping students investigate and learn about aquaculture, as well as its impact on the economy and environment.

John Bostock's insight:

This is a great initiative and good example of how aquaculture can be brought into the classroom - just needs a mark 2 version with some video and real sea spray!

The Promotion of Language Learning and Linguistic Diversity through the aquatic sciences ERASMUS network AQUA-TNET - Online First - Springer

The Promotion of Language Learning and Linguistic Diversity through the aquatic sciences ERASMUS network AQUA-TNET - Online First - Springer | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
The ERASMUS academic network AQUA-TNET, prompted by reports of a lack of concern regarding language training provision for exchange students which had been raised in successive European Universities Association Trends reports, carried out a detailed examination of the language training provided by its partners for exchange students through its Language Learning and Linguistic Diversity (LLLD) group. The group carried out several European-wide surveys to ascertain whether the reported lack of concern was also evident in the AQUA-TNET partnership. The results of these surveys reveal some disparity between staff and student perceptions of language provision for exchange students. The group also investigated the incidence of English as the main delivery language for aquatic science courses, as well as the need for language provision at the basic rather than the intermediate or advanced level, as advocated by the academic sector. The AQUA-TNET LLLD group’s activities were responsible for several studies and reports used to inform or update the network on developments relevant to their language learning policies: desk study on marine science courses in the AQUA-TNET network; review of European schools’ language (and science) policies; reports on EUROPASS, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the use of the Internet for delivery of multilingual language learning. The needs analysis derived from the student survey on online language course provision led to changes in the chosen online language course.

Positioning lifelong learning in aquaculture: challenges and opportunities - Online First - Springer

Positioning lifelong learning in aquaculture: challenges and opportunities - Online First - Springer | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
Lifelong learning has been one of the building blocks of the Bologna Process since 1999. The Thematic network AQUA-TNET (Aquaculture, Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Management TN—2008–2011—142245-LLP-1-2008-1-BE-ERASMUS-ENW) in its response to each development has made a significant contribution to the network members’ knowledge and understanding of the different aspects concerned in the provision of university lifelong learning. Various definitions and interpretations of the concept led to relatively slow implementation of lifelong learning in many European universities; however, the EUA European Universities Charter of Lifelong Learning Surveys undertaken by AQUA-TNET showed that the AQUA-TNET approach has successfully incentivised its partners, since a higher percentage of AQUA-TNET partners (54 %) have a LLL strategy in place than the HE organisations surveyed by the EUA (average 39 %).

Better design, better targeting needed for sustainable development of aquaculture

Better design, better targeting needed for sustainable development of aquaculture | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

A report published today by the European Court of Auditors (ECA) reveals that measures to support aquaculture in the period up to 2013 were not well designed and implemented at EU and Member State level, and that the European Fisheries Fund (EFF), as the funding instrument of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), failed to deliver value for money and effective support for the sustainable development of aquaculture.

Evaluation on the use of e-learning tools to support teaching and learning in aquaculture and aquatic sciences education - Online First - Springer

Evaluation on the use of e-learning tools to support teaching and learning in aquaculture and aquatic sciences education - Online First - Springer | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The study aimed to capture a snapshot of the status of educational means used in teaching and learning in the area of aquaculture, fisheries and aquatic resources management at European level, with specific consideration on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and e-learning tools. To achieve this goal, an online survey was compiled and made available to teachers and students across Europe. In total, teachers from 31 institutions and students from 40 institutions participated in this survey. This paper presents the findings, considers trends and poses further questions for sector stakeholders to help in the development of future programmes and support. In summary, it can be concluded that few teachers have a comprehensive knowledge of the wide range of ICT tools available and can make use of e-learning tools with complete confidence. There is therefore a real and urgent need to “train the trainers” to use ICT in their teaching environments. From the students’ end, there is a strong desire to learn more about the application of e-learning tools and to use them in their learning process.

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.

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

Wort looking at the four pillars of F-L-I-P

 

Flexible Environment:

 F.1: I establish spaces and time frames that permit students to interact and reflect on their learning as needed.  F.2: I continually observe and monitor students to make adjustments as appropriate. F.3: I provide students with different ways to learn content and demonstrate mastery.

Learning Culture:

 L.1: I give students opportunities to engage in meaningful activities without the teacher being central.  L.2: I scaffold these activities and make them accessible to all students through differentiation and feedback.

Intentional Content:

 I.1: I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.  I.2: I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.  I.3: I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Professional Educator:

 P.1: I make myself available to all students for individual, small-group and class feedback, in real time, as needed.  P.2: I conduct ongoing formative assessments during class time through observation and by recording data to inform future instruction. P.3: I collaborate and reflect with other educators and take responsibility for transforming my practice.

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.
