Geophysics for Community Groups (June 2011)
University of Bradford
2 days 10th–11th June 2011, 10am–4pm
Cost: £10 per day, with CBA members receiving a 10% discount.
The aim of the short course was to provide a solid base on how to process and interpret data and was aimed at part-time users of earth resistance and magnetometers. Attendees all had some experience of collecting geophysical data and were encouraged to bring their own data to the sessions.
The course proved very popular and was fully booked within days!
Feedback throughout the event was very positive and participants relished the chance to grill the experts on using software, as well as interpretations of their own data which they had brought with them. It was commented that the course was quite challenging but felt that this is what voluntary and community groups needed.
A programme evaluation was undertaken which gave some very positive results:
- 90% rated their overall impression of the course as good or excellent with 10% (representing just 1 person) rating it as fair.
- 100% rated the usefulness to their future archaeological career as good or excellent
- 100% rated the value for money of the curse as good or excellent.
- Across 6 key areas we saw an average increase in knowledge and skill level of 114%. This demonstrates that CBA training provides real skills development!
Some comments from evaluations
A really good course, well delivered with a good balance of lectures and workshops.
…What has been covered will be invaluable for revisiting raw data from work done on two projects we are involved in.
