Abstract
Erasmus 2009-2013 is a cooperation and mobility programme in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education. In 2012 it was proposed a training program (Master Degree) related to Climate Change and the restoration of degraded lands. The promoter of this project, Technical University of Madrid (UPM), has identified a clear lack of educational provision regarding Climate Change, Degraded Land and its Restoration, in both educational and non-educational settings. UPM has got an expertise in developing tailored e-learning programmes and their strengths rely on their ability to adapt ICT solutions to the particular needs of the educators by incorporating the latest developments in communication. UPM is a leader in landslide assessment and environmental restoration, as well as in waste management. The study of climate change and degraded land requires innovative techniques in teaching that will be analyzed and discussed in the following document. These techniques should be integrated among the various project partners, which increase the difficulty of applying homogeneous. Another complex issue is the environmental disparity in each area, from a subtropical climate (Canary Islands) and volcanic origin to a continental climate, which hinders the realization of general documents of application in all the territories and which contents can be useful to all students. This work has been funded by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), as an Erasmus Multilateral Project through project number 526746-LLP-1-2012-1-ES-ERASMUS-EMCR.
