CoaStudy is a multidisciplinary educational tool for the Master Course on Integrated Coastal Management at the Russian State Hydrometereological University. It provides a compilation of educational and lecture materials organized in a modular, interactive way.

 

The design and preparation of the CoaStudy CD-ROM is the result of joint cooperation within framework of implementation of Tempus JEP 25236_2004 ( EU-COMET2) project (http://eu-comet2.rshu.ru).

 

This educational tool using modern information technology has some important advantages such as the possibility for individual education and learning, interactivity, and freedom of teaching in terms of time, place and space which is relevant for life long learning process.

 

The target groups are primarily the teachers and students of the Master Course on Integrated Coastal Management at the Russian State Hydrometereological University. To a wider extent, target groups are also bachelors from other relevant fields of ICM throughout the Russian Federation and NIS countries, as well as European Universities interested in ICM in general. Teaching materials (case studies and presentations) presented at CoaStudy CD-ROM can be useful also for the academic staff dealing with different aspects of coastal sustainable development and for improving knowledge and competence of coastal users.

 

CoaStudy is available in English and partly in Russian languages.
