Objectives

 

The course aims at introducing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in emergency management contexts, facing new challenges in both technological aspects and disaster events. Furthermore, process modelling concepts and tools are presented in order to enable the students to analyzing and designing emergency management processes.

 

  • Knowledge and understanding : The course offers foundational knowledge related to critical incident response systems and seismic early warning systems and gives understanding tools for analyzing the information-data-knowledge construction process in emergency management. It offers also a methodology of modeling information and communication systems through a process-oriented approach.
  • Applying knowledge and understanding: The interdisciplinary approach adopted in the modulus permits to the students the application and integration of the Foundational Knowledgethey acquire from the three courses in a problem-centered approach by modeling emergency management processes and related information and communication solutions in seismic disasters.
  • Making judgments: The course offers to the students tools and competences to analyze and evaluate both opportunities and limits of introducing ICT in disaster management.
  • Communication skills: Rationalization and design choice defense are developed during the course and all along the project review activities performed with the professors. The team working skills are developed during the project development.
  • Learning skills: The interdisciplinary approach permits learning How-to-Learn by obtaining insights into the process of learning

 

Required preliminary knowledge
