Framework for Multi‐level Education & Training – Curriculum Development and Methodology

Our Mission

Importance of Education and Training plays vital role in building the capacity of the human.  Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing along with Geo-Informatics is ever expanding subject touching almost all areas of human endeavor ranging from individual to institutional domains. Direct and indirect use of Geo-Informatics to individuals, communities, governments, public bodies, industries on national and global level increases its appeal. Being multidisciplinary at its core, the advances flow from many directions and thus, are diverse and rapid.

Specialized knowledge of the subject is provided by plethora of courses offered through various universities and industrial institutions. The learning pedagogy, like those of many other disciplines, is adapting various methods of teaching and learning through classroom-based, e-learning and project based techniques.  E-learning program is the most recent methodology of collaborative education. The present scenario of teaching and learning infrastructure being very vast needs improvements in methods related to pedagogy and evaluation on regular basis. A mission of this Working Group 1 is a step to catch a hold on the pedagogy innovations required for multi-level education and training as well as the curriculum development and respective methodology.
