    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


    Hydroinformatics is broadly defined as the application of modern information technologies to the solution of problems associated with the aquatic environment. In their future working and professional environment higher education graduates are expected to effectively work in the “Information Society”.. Implied there is a change from application of disciplinary topics to competence based working where knowledge, skills and attitudes are integrated across separate disciplines. Students in higher education need a learning environment in which they can learn to operate at the level required for starting a professional career. The learning environment therefore should take realistic account of the future working and professional environment with the main focus on development of professional competences of students. The students learn to apply knowledge in professional situations; their competence development is measured and assessed. This is the characteristic of an educational concept which is often termed as ‘competence-based education’.
