At the IKBFU launched a set of educational courses for students and tourism workers

At the IKBFU  a series of educational courses (master classes) began on the use of maritime historical and cultural heritage for students and workers of the tourist business under the project “2 ships - one sea. Soldek and Vityaz: Maritime Heritage of Poland and Russia ”of the cross-border cooperation program“ Russia-Poland 2014-2020 ”, a partner of which is IKBFU from November 25, 2020.
Courses are organized in the format of advanced training for 72 hours with the issuance of certificates and certificates of advanced training of the state standard. The end of the courses is planned for the spring of 2021. The opening of the borders will make it possible to hold one seminar in Gdansk (Poland) together with the project partner - the National Maritime Museum.
Due to the complicated epidemic situation, lectures on the courses are delivered on-line. Practical classes, where it is planned to study the objects of marine heritage, should be conducted in full-time format together with the leading partner of the project, the Museum of the World Ocean. The result of the courses should be new tourism products - quests for different categories of visitors to marine heritage sites, and it is impossible to fully create and test the results of the work without direct study and visiting the sites.

Anna Belova, project manager from IKBFU:

“An indicator that this course is unique for the development of tourism in the region is evidenced by the fact that 72 students have signed up for us, of which more than 30 are students of our university. And at each lesson they are present, actively ask questions, participate in discussions. All our lessons are translated into English and will be transferred to a Polish partner for broadcasting to Polish students. We are very glad that despite the rather difficult time we can implement our project for the benefit of the region".

Recall that the project is being implemented for two years - until the fall of 2021. At the IKBFU is also working on the preparation of a textbook on 3D modeling and the use of high-precision technologies for the preservation and popularization of maritime historical and cultural heritage, as well as a catalog of historical shipyards in the South-Eastern Baltic. The publication is aimed at a wide range of readers, including tourists and local residents, as well as the academic community in the Baltic region.
