The purpose of this training workshop is to share knowledge, skills, resources and training techniques so that attendees are able to independently train others on available Earth Observation (EO) data and tools. During the course, participants will work with others to create their own (learning) artefacts. This is an interactive knowledge exchange workshop, not a technical training event.


Aims and objectives: 

To support marine and earth observation educators in their training activities, by sharing Copernicus Marine data resources and exchanging experience of different learning approaches.

To foster a community of marine EO educators who can collaborate in future.

To co-create learning artefacts that can used in participants own training activities and more broadly by the Earth observation community.

Workshop duration and format:

This is an online event with asynchronous, self-paced activities and synchronous sessions. The estimated workload should be 5-10 hours/week, up to 25 hours in total across the 3 weeks, to be completed by 17 June 2022.

Online, synchronous discussions sessions are planned twice a week. These will take place at 08:00 and 17:00 CET/UTC+2 (with a maximum duration of 2 hours each) to accommodate the different timezones of the participants. Participants need only attend one time zone. In addition, it will be possible to book 1-1 sessions with the trainers, throughout.

The workshop is designed to be flexible, to support the needs of a diverse range of participants. Workshop organisers will be happy to discuss any accommodations needed.


Participants will be expected to develop a ‘mini project’ as well as contribute to live sessions and asynchronous activities. Two types of Certificates will be issued:

Certificate of participation (participants will need to):

Have attended minimum 80% of live sessions (or watched recording if couldn’t attend)

Worked through minimum 90% of course materials

Certificate of achievement (besides the above, participants will need to):

Deliver a presentation/artefact at the end of the course
