The University of Girona is planning to give an extensive Advanced Training Course to students of the Master of Science in Sustainable Agriculture in Svay Rieng University.
On the one hand, this course will contain a theoretical part by using videos created by agreencam (in this link you can find more information about agreencam) focused on three aspects: environmental, human health and economic issues, and a discussion with the master students later on. Moreover, students will have available a battery of videos with information on ecotoxicology of agrochemicals on this website in order they can adress any question to Helena Guasch during her stay in Cambodia. Thus, students will take full advantage of the audiovisual materials which have been already recorded.
On the other hand, the second part will be performed at the laboratory and will consist of running some experiments of chemical toxicity and the use of pesticides on aquatic organisms. To do this, water samples will be taken different freshwater pools with different level of eutrophication.
The combined use of different learning metholds to this course (theoretical lecture and mentoring, sampling campaign and lab work) will help students to get the learning competences as planned.
We invitate all master students as well as any stakeholder from SRU to attend this course!
