Thursday Webinar on Best Practices Catalogue for EBAG Distance Education

Through this webinar scheduled on 15th October at 10 AM CEST, we would like to invite you directly into the topic of one aspect of remote EBAG (eco-, bio-, agro-, geo-) education: how we can utilize and apply the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approach in the field of distance EBAG education.
Is that really applicable? And how? We need to focus on open access as one of the RRI pillars. The crucial goal of the Challenge 1 is to develop an open digital catalogue of best practices for everyday usage. The catalogue will contain a huge number of educational materials (lessons, methodologies, worksheets, handouts, syllabus, presentations, applications, services, feedback forms etc.).
