The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on “Agroecology, an Introduction” is an online course that aims at helping you discover what agroecology is through the complexity of the various approaches that have emerged over the years and in various regions of the world, and through the ways they can be implemented in the fields, and studied, as agricultural practices.
The syllabus has been designed at the interface of agronomy, ecology and social sciences. The course’s dynamic is one of participative learning, and heavily relies on the social and geographic diversity of the participants.
This course has been developed on theoretical knowledge, by the Institut Agro Montpellier and Agreenium with the support of Agropolis Foundation and presented by a collaborative learning approach where participants are invited to contribute their own knowledge, know-how and observations, especially through the mini-report activity embedded throughout the syllabus.
Anyone curious about agroecology: no prerequisite is required to benefit from this course. Professionals who want to expand their knowledge will find a flexible learning platform built on the latest scientific research findings and on-the-ground development projects. Students needing training will be able to apply the scientific fundamentals this course provides. Passionate agroecology practitioners or advocates who are eager to share their knowledge and skills and to learn from others: this course is designed around information-sharing tools and opportunities among a widely diverse community of participants.
The course will run in French from 27 January to 19 March 2023.
