On-line short course
On-line openGUTS short course. Roman
Ashauer and Tjalling Jager have provided an on-line half-day
short course on the openGUTS software at the virtual SETAC Europe in
May 2020. Since SETAC was virtual that year, we also
had the course on-line, with a mixture of on-demand
lectures, homework exercises, and plenary video sessions.
Tjalling has turned this material into a publicly-available
on-line short course at Leanpub: https://leanpub.com/c/openguts.
This version does not include interaction with the
instructors (so it is completely DIY), but we have added
some quizzes to test your skills with openGUTS. Note that
this course is not free, though it is very friendly
priced, and you can simply obtain a no-questions-asked
refund from Leanpub if you think the course was not worth
Dedicated openGUTS course
Regular GUTS courses. Since
the release of the first version of openGUTS, we have had
the intention to provide a regular, commercial course on
using GUTS in risk assessment of plant protection products.
This course should apply the openGUTS standalone software,
and possibly the Matlab version as well. So far, however,
our intentions have been thwarted by various issues (a.o.,
job changes and the corona crisis), and, we must admit,
interest in such a course has not been overwhelming.
Therefore, at the moment, these ideas are on hold. We have
been contemplating various formats, such as an open course
on a teaching location, non-open courses on-site (e.g., at a
regular authorities or companies premises), or an on-line
interactive course. We love to hear about your course
wishes: if you are interested in an openGUTS course, please
Jager (DEBtox Research) by email (also see email
address at the bottom of this page). Given sufficient
interest, we might pick this up again. If we (or others)
have more concrete plans we will post them here.
