World Water Day 2016 “Water and Jobs” At Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center, March 26, 2016   1- Background and Introduction Water is arguably one of the most precious resources of our planet. From 50 to 90 percent of the weight of living organisms, including human being is water. Without water life would be impossible on Earth. Water scarcity is a major global challenge.

WATR7800 LEARNING THROUGH YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE: A NEW APPROACH AND METHODOLOGY

WATR7800 LEARNING THROUGH YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE: A NEW APPROACH AND METHODOLOGYSusana Neto, Jeff Camkin November 2015 Through a methodology framed around building a learning process that departs from the experience and expectations of the participants, the module Water and Agricultural Landscapes (WATR7800) is delivered yearly in Perth as part of the IWC International Master of Integrated Water Management. The main objective is to support the participants in ‘back-casting’ from their individual targets/objectives and to build a learning process that will support them to understand, filter and incorporate each session (inputs from lessons, class discussions or other improved knowledge originated by exposure to the sessions) into his/her own learning objectives. To accomplish this [more]

Conceptual diagrams or conceptual diagramming? Creating diagrams as a tool for stakeholder collaboration

Conceptual diagrams or conceptual diagramming? Creating diagrams as a tool for stakeholder collaborationAuthor / Researcher Anthony Kung Diagrams are things; diagramming is a process Many of us within the IWC are familiar with conceptual diagrams that are created at the Integration and Application Network (IAN). IAN is a science communication organisation within the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, USA. It has strong ties to Queensland (and UQ in particular), because its first leaders, Dr Bill Dennison and Dr Tim Carruthers, were both previous academic staff at UQ. IAN’s science communication services are used globally, with projects in the USA, Colombia, India, Samoa, Australia, and others. In this article, I want to explore not [more]

Miranda and Vincent studied the full-time Master in Integrated Water Management in 2010. From the very first days of the programme, they always had high affinities for each other. This French/Australian couple clearly reflects the international dimension of the IWC program and their story proves that no borders can surpass love. After working in different places  (Peru, France, New Caledonia, and Bulgaria) and seeing what water issues look like overseas, they will soon settle in Sydney with plans to start a [more]
