WORKING GROUP 5 – Education and Training
Prof. Ludovic Dickel
A key role of this Action is to train people at different levels of expertise in the use of cephalopods for research, training, education and display. Web platforms and databases are one of the products of this WG.
Moreover, editorial processes will be applied to improve the quality of the education delivered in Training Schools and in events for the general public.
This WG will take care of integrating and diffusing the achievements of all tasks for the whole length of this Action.
This Work Group will integrate the following tasks:
Task 1 – Dissemination and Training Activities
Task 2 – Development of Educational Material including Audiovisual alternatives (inspired to NORINA Database of Alternatives)
Although each WG will be responsible for dissemination of its own products, this WG particularly focuses on producing educational material and training settings to enable dissemination of the knowledge gained among end users and especially veterinarians, young scientists and technicians.
This WG will include education personnel and award winning film makers to produce best possible materials.
This WG is responsible for the organization or development of:
• 3 Training Schools
• 2 Workshops
• Educational material on cephalopods husbandry and physiology that could be integrated into veterinary schools.
• Manuals based on delivered guidelines which could be readily used by holding facilities managers and technicians, including drawing and worksheets.
• Interactive computer videos and software to allow for improved teaching of cephalopods, and for experimental planning, without sacrificing animals.
