This book also discusses color and contrast enhancement in vision sensors and applications of image and video enhancement. · Focu...

Former sans ennuyer : Concevoir et réaliser des projets de formation et d'enseignement

"Savoir ne suffit pas, il faut savoir transmettre." Faute de suivre cet adage, bien des formateurs et des enseignants se retrouvent face au "mur de l'ennui" et à ses conséquences directes : désintérêt et faible motivation des apprenants, faible efficacité du cours, mal-être dans leur métier. On peut pourtant apprendre et transmettre un savoir avec plaisir et efficacité. Ce guide s'appuie sur les fondements du "mieux-apprendre", appro...
