October 13, 2021
The Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue has launched a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) called Les mines et les changements climatiques. The MOOC, which is available on the plateforme du Service de la formation continue, is comprised of an introduction and five courses which have been made in partnership with Polytechnique Montreal. The courses will integrate basic knowledge on climate change to teach students about the mining sector, mine waste storage area management, and surface management. Students will be able to learn about the mining sector and the environment at their own pace and can choose to take one or all of the five courses. UQuebec (QC)
