Spationomy Summerschool – the last part of IntLeB (Interdisciplinary Learning Block) – is held in Maribor, Slovenia. It is the final and the most demanding part of IntLeB. This 7-day course for all students is the culmination of IntLeB. Students will present their project assigned during the drill part. Then the intensive lectures (economy, decision making, business informatics, geomatics) will take place, followed by the simulation of “economic/business analytics issues from real world” via game-based learning, where they apply gained interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and abilities about economic data analyses using spatial methods.
The first intensive short-term course (the drill part) of the Interdisciplinary Learning Block (IntLeB) is held in Bochum (Germany). The hosting institution (Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum) has already set up the course. Students will learn about a team management, quantitative methods, business informatics, geoinformatics and remote sensing, and many more. This unique encounter between all participating students and staff members is the first all-in-one event of the Spationomy.
After the Bochum Drill part of the Interdisciplinary Learning Block (IntLeB), there are virtual meetings planned for the rest of the semester until the Spationomy Summerschool in Maribor in June 2017. Virtual meeting comprises of (1) inter-group collaborative and remote work on the project and (2) regular one-hour Skype meetings with the project topic supervisor.
