Reserve Slides Take home story Under FP5, FP6 & FP7 there is significant investment in creating & delivering e-Infrastructure EU & Member States The resulting e-Infrastructure is Extremely powerful It will be pervasive & dependable It will be multi-purpose, then general purpose E-Infrastructure has huge potential To transform the way we work Research, Design, Diagnosis, Decisions, Education, Business All Disciplines

All walks of life All member states It could significantly improve wealth & well-being Of large numbers of EU citizens But it will not unless we invest heavily in Education & Training Today only a tiny few cognoscenti use it INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 Why Education & Training work Education The teachers & learners are already engaged They can assimilate ideas in their subjects The provide a creative milieu New ways of using e-Infrastructure New ways of doing their discipline New exemplars & teaching material They carry the message to their communities

Conferences, journals & the pub Employers, colleagues & society Training Employers, managers & trainees see immediate gain Delivered skills are immediately deployed The trained transfer skills to their colleagues The trained become trainers and educators INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 What do we need? More people training

For all roles Strategists & leaders Users Designers Application developers Operations Existing trainers well informed about e-Infrastructure Expertise matches target role All trainers well supported All trainees well supported INFSO-SSA-26637

More people educating For all disciplines Earth sciences Life sciences Social Sciences Humanities Economics Existing educators wellmotivated to bring e-Science into their curricula Educators well-informed Educators well-supported Learners well-supported

14th February 2006 How can we get it? 1 More people training Attract & motivate trainers Special qualities needed enthusiasm, communication skills, technical skills, creativity Funds for more training staff Recognition and accreditation Engage the existing training organisations Develop pool of training experts For For

For For roles subject disciplines and application contexts modes of delivery national and societal contexts Share expertise draw on the pool of experts INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 How can we get it? 2 Trainers well informed Train the trainers Accredit the trainers Supply and share training material Trainers well supported

Good supporting club to share thoughts, experiences & problems Repository of training material Curricula Presentations Tutorial pages Hands-on exercises courseware & example accessible data T-Infrastructure platforms for exercises Cooperative scheduling Evaluation and feedback INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 How can we get it? 3

Trainees well supported Easy access to information about courses and trainers Good supporting club to share thoughts, experiences & problems Easy access to self-paced learning Federation of e-Learning portals Rich collection of well-structured e-Learning content Tutorial pages Readable documentation & experience stories Access to t-Infrastructure to run hands-on exercises Access to facilities to do next steps in transferring skills Summer schools Can we share their provided environment? Can we provide mobile & ubiquitous access

for learners with modest hurdles? INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 How can we get it? 4 More people educating Stimulate interest in Universities (and Schools?) University leadership + front-line educators Outreach talks, information sources, visits, talks Stimulate interest in Ministries of Education They should fund stimulation activities for curriculum change Existing educators well-motivated to bring e-Science into their curricula Good supporting club to share thoughts, experiences & problems Work to develop curricula & success stories

In many disciplines Develop this in their disciplines meetings & forum Summer schools INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006 How can we get it? 5 Educators well-informed All training topics above for educators Summer schools Educators well-supported Shared materials, t-Infrastructure, , as above Tuned for education Learners well-supported High-quality material & educators New experiences multi-discipline work, multi-site

teams, multi-national collaboration in their discipline Self-paced e-Learning facilities T-Infrastructure accessable and responsive Good supporting club to share thoughts, experiences & problems Summer schools INFSO-SSA-26637 14th February 2006
