ED006: Methods and Partnerships in Limnology and Oceanography Education
Session ID#: 29779
Innovations in formal and informal education and outreach in the fields of ocean science, environmental science, and limnology have been plentiful in recent years. Of specific significance is making aquatic science content relevant to all audiences: K-12, undergraduate, and graduate students, and the public education. How can science lessons answer the question "Why is this important to me?" Student-researcher partnerships are one way to make the connection between science and students' lives and to result in an increase in ocean and climate literacy. Whether through partnerships, experimentation, or observations, we need to share our lessons learned with the ocean science education community. A focus on evaluation, documentation, and dissemination of successful methods in ocean science education have allowed best practices to be established so educators do not have to reinvent successful strategies. This session invites any and all submissions describing successful and/or no
hods and partnerships in limnology and oceanography education (formal or informal).
