IMPULSE Project T5.6 Train the trainer workshop
The main objective of this workshop is to train staff in functionalities of the learning platform moodle, establishment and setting of course parameters, including course management, advice on how to set up course resources, and running through practicalities of implementing a course and handling training for users and staff.
The main outcome should be to train staff on how to operate the Learning Management System Platforms, helping them implement and improve existing training materials and techniques to better support users and staff.
A dedicated day is dedicated to presentations of requirements from different ELI departments and groups to identify new platform stakeholders and new training methodologies which should be considered to facilitate the adoption of the platform and the integration of the platform.
IMPULSE (Integrated Management and reliable oPerations for User-based Laser Scientific Excellence) is a 42-month project supporting the transition of ELI to sustainable operations. As ELI enters a crucial phase with the establishment of ELI ERIC and the gradual opening of the ELI Facilities to users, IMPULSE addresses the key scientific, technical, organisational and management requirements of this transition, building user communities and expanding the ELI member consortium.
This project is inclusive and open, and it relies on the collective effort of a wide consortium involving 15 key institutions of the European science community. IMPULSE focuses primarily on ELI, but its results must have impact beyond the ELI Facilities.
The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is the world’s leading laser-based research infrastructure. It serves cutting-edge research in physical, chemical, materials and medical sciences, as well as breakthrough technological innovations.
On 30 April 2021, the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) was granted the legal status of European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) by the European Commission. ELI ERIC will provide access to world-class high power and ultra-fast lasers for science and enable cutting-edge research in physical, chemical, materials, and medical sciences, as well as breakthrough technological innovations.
The Czech Republic hosts the ELI ERIC statutory seat in Dolní Břežany, in the South of Prague, at the ELI Beamlines facility. A second facility, ELI ALPS, is hosted by Hungary in Szeged. The Czech Republic and Hungary are joined by Italy and Lithuania as founding members, while Germany and Bulgaria are founding observers. A third ELI facility is being delivered in Romania in the field of nuclear photonics and is expected to complement the current ELI ERIC facilities in the future.
