UNIGIS Team Salzburg - Work Retreat

The UNIGIS Team Salzburg held a work retreat on April 12.-13., 2012, to discuss in depth the strategic development of two UNIGIS cornerstones:

An entire day was dedicated to reflect on the current status of UNIGIS modules and future paths to take. A particular focus was given to the alignment of content and materials between the two languages (German and English) and where adequate also between the two UNIGIS programmes (UNIGIS professional / UNIGIS MSc). To provide guidance on content development in terms of syllabi and adequate learning materials and -media several team members take a role as ‘theme lead’ for a particular subject.

The agenda for the second part of the meeting was reserved for discussing alumni-networking activities.

It was a successful and inspiring meeting in the mountainous surroundings of Salzburg. On the way home, our bagpacks were filled with fresh ideas and motivation to …educating GI-professionals worldwide.
