A trilateral UK-Finland-Russia workshop ‘Sharing best practices in Arctic education’ in the framework of the 2018 UArctic Congress. Organised in partnership with UArctic, Northern (Arctic) Federal University and UK Science and Innovation Networks in Russia and Finland, the event will bring together leading experts in Arctic-related education from UK, Finnish and Russian universities.
The workshop will focus on the exchange of best practices in delivering Arctic-related education and will accommodate a discussion to:
- Identify promising areas/themes/projects for potential UK-Finland-Russia collaboration in developing relevant courses and educational materials
- Discuss tools and mechanisms (i.e. online learning, operations on a distributed basis) to help share and implement best practices in Arctic education across the university network
- Set out next steps/initiatives to enable future joint work
