This permanent edition of the course is an in-kind contribution of Tecnatom and UNED to the sustainability of the first edition. As being a permanent edition, no teaching assistance is foreseen.
These MOOCs are conceived as a first contact with the safety culture in all areas to continue, then, deepening in more specific concepts in the nuclear field. In order to establish a good safety culture and nuclear safety culture, aligned leadership is necessary. All these aspects will be worked in a dynamic, different and participative way, in which collaborative learning will be a key aspect. The goal of the MOOCs is to ensure that students, industry workers and any person interested, know and transmit the safety culture and its importance.
At the end of the MOOCs, the participants will be able to understand and explain the aspects related to human behaviour and its management to achieve a strong safety culture. These general concepts will be focused to the nuclear industry and its differentiating characteristics.
The MOOCs structure includes three independent NOOCs (Nano Open Online Courses).
- NOOC I. What is Safety Culture? 10h.
- NOOC II. Understanding Nuclear Safety Culture>. 10h
- NOOC III. Developing leadership for safety. 5h
In this context we offer in this course as well as in the other two NOOCs, a very extensive glossary of nuclear terms in order to guide those with little or no knowledge on the subject for the complete understanding of all the contents, specially for NOOC II.
