Educational Laboratory for Socio-Economic and Information Technologies (room 5-66) and two classrooms: 3-62, 3-63 implements educational and research component of the educational process for students and PhD students of the Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies. All classrooms are equipped with computers, modern equipment to support educational process, manuals, stands and illustrative material. The entire auditorium of the department is provided with computers connected to the Internet.
Classrooms of the Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies
Educational Laboratory for Socio-Economic and Information Technologies provides high-quality training for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees (PhD). The laboratory has been operating at the Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies since 1995 at the address: Maidan Svobody, 4, building 11, room 5-66. In 2020-2021 academic year it became a structural unit of the Faculty of Geology, Geography, Recreation and Tourism. Head of the laboratory is Pavlo Kobylin, PhD in Geography, who ensures functioning of classrooms 3-62, 3-63 of the Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies.
Educational Laboratory for Socio-Economic and Information Technologies
Educational laboratory (room 5-66) and classrooms 3-63, 3-62 of the department perform the following functions:
Educational laboratory (classroom 5-66) and classrooms 3-62, 3-63 of the department hosts laboratory, practical and seminar classes, students’ research and assistant practices, qualifying works defense, meetings of the Discussion Club of students, PhD students, doctoral students and young scientists of the Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies, round tables and sectional meetings of international conferences "Region: Optimal Development Strategies" and "Region: Human-Geographical Aspects", the First International Doctoral Summer School on Urban Geopolitics, the I stage of the All-Ukrainian competition of student research papers in geography.
The Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies has modern equipment:
Licensed software is used in the educational process:
Education at the department is fully computerized. Students of the department perform all types of work (practical work, practice reports, qualification papers, etc.) using computer technology. The study of the disciplines "Computer Technologies in Human Geography (Workshop)", "Informatics with the basics of geoinformatics", "Information geography and GIS" helps to increase students' computer awareness.
Also, intensive professional training in mastering geographic information systems (GIS) is held at all levels of higher education, which allows to master modern GIS platforms and programs for processing geographic databases and use the knowledge gained during the internship, training, and also future employment.
The scientific and methodological geoinformation component is provided by the training courses "Geographic Information Systems", "Information Technologies in Areal Management", "Working with Databases in Human Geography", "Statistical Methods and Geoinformation Processing", "Three-Dimensional (3D) Modeling of the Urban Environment".
Use of interactive whiteboards in the teaching of academic disciplines allows to visualize the teaching process as much as possible due to the possibility of using cartographic, photo and video material, to approach directly to organization of active learning with the maximum applicants involvement. The color marker function allows to create color drawings and diagrams, to implement interactive teaching methods. A positive aspect is also ability to access the global Internet. Interactive whiteboards are used both in terms of educational activities and during round tables and sectional conference meetings.
