Participants at CALMet XI conference sponsored by Eumetcal

7-11 September / Seoul

CALMet XI workshop was hosted by Korean Meteorological Administration. The workshop provided  a global forum to share experiences, expectations and new ideas for meteorology and hydrology education and training. Eumetcal offered partial sponsorship to three trainers of its member organisations.

Their comments.

Philip Merritt (UKMO): “I have tried out using the booster question approach for some of my training which seems to have gone very well, and I hope that I will be able to help develop more blended learning approaches for other training I am involved with.”

Ivan Smiljanic (DHMZ): “To learn about learning is a privilege for me and I believe that ‘Calmet’ is one of the best platforms for that, globally. Many trainers and trainees in Europe are seeing this workshop as a global version of the Eumetcal workshop, therefore I am very glad that Eumetcal took the initiative to support it and sponsor more than one attendee to travel to Korea.”

Heleen Ter Pelkwijk (KNMI): “It is interesting to see that each continent has its own training-related issues and, therefore, is specialised in a different field of meteorological education and training. For me this opens new perspectives and broadens my view.”
