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.
