UCA participates in Tempus-GEM teacher training in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic

Date: 04 May 2012

From 30 April to 5 May 2012, the University of Central Asia (UCA) supported two teacher trainers – Ruslan Bobov and Farrukh Nazarmovloev – to attend the workshop on  theoretical and practical implications of using geoinformatics systems (GIS) technologies. The training conducted at the Kyrgyz State University of Construction, Transport and Architecture was the third training as part of a Tempus-GEM  grant project.

Started in December 2010 the overall aim of this three-year grant is to design and implement a geoinformatics Masters level course with partner countries in Central Asia and Europe. This is a relatively new discipline for the region and not only new skills but new academic opportunities and standards are being developed as part of this project. The training will help to “develop networks where people, who have their own specialties, can exchange information”, said Ruslan Bobov. Ruslan and Farrukh also participated in the Annual Central Asia GIS Conference “Geoinformaton for Land and Resource Management”, held on 2-3 May, which further broadened their networks and knowledge of the discipline.

This project is also being supported by UCA's Knowledge Management Unit which has designed the Moodle platform that is being as part of the course and technical backstopping.
