Teaching objectives

Training in scientific issues and the use of bioacoustic tools.
At the end of the training, the following skills will have been acquired:
- to know how to use the basic equipment necessary for any study in bioacoustics (digital tape recorder, microphones, loudspeakers);
- to have acquired basic knowledge of sound as well as the rudiments of signal processing (use of software such as PRAAT and Seewave);
- be able to set up a bioacoustic study (scientific question, protocol, carrying out experiments, analysis of results);
- have a general knowledge of the world of bioacoustics and its interests, both in basic and applied research.
The two weeks of training are concluded with an oral examination to assess the skills acquired. Students will have a degree in bioacoustics, certified by the University of Lyon/Saint-Etienne.
