To provide detailed information on how to use these educational resources in regular teaching and to seek their collaboration to review/improvise and expand our education resources, a workshop for teachers of all disciplines will be organized. Workshop duration (following the keynote speech in the morning) is about one hour. It includes an introduction into the resources available on the TROP ICSU web site and a trial version of one of the simulators and feedback discussion. Participants are required to have their own laptops.
