UNIGIS workshop of intake 2010 in Kraków, Poland.

Last weekend almost 50 students of UNIGIS intake 2010 arrived to Kraków to take part in their fourth and last UNIGIS workshop. They were eager to meet each other and to strengthen their learning motivation for last three months of their studies.

Apart of the practical classes in remote sensing they attended lectures discussing new trends in GISience and worked in groups on the collaborative project issues.

Equally important to the ‘GIS’ part of thee workshop were more pedagogically oriented classes dealing with students learning styles, their feedback regarding UNIGIS obligatory modules and showing the results achieved by group and each student. Ten of students, who presented the best performance were awarded with geoinformation books.

The social importance of the workshop was highlighted by the common dinner in one of restaurants in the Kraków Old Town. We hope to have next tens of UNIGIS Kraków alumni soon!
