Montpellier SupAgro is pleased to present its two MOOC (massive open online courses) :

These two MOOCs launched by Supagro are starting on February the 17th, 2017. Registrations are still open!

They have been designed by a collaborative work of researchers from Montpellier Supagro and other partners' research organisations such as CIRAD, INRA and IRD.
They are free of charge and accessible on the Internet (click on the links).
They can be very interesting for your students, to better know Supagro and its pedagogical team and research partners, but also for them to prepare their mobility period in France : they can decide to follow the MOOCs in French to improve their French or in English. Finally, it can be a good way to travel for your students who are not able to physically visit us!

More information on MOOC Agroecology:

Is it true that agroecology is THE solution to the challenges that agriculture faces today—feeding a growing population while conserving natural resources in a world where uncertainties about climate change, biodiversity, energy etc. keep intensifying?

Is agroecology a mere fad, or a significant scientific, technical and political revolution?

This course 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.
