Connecting the Global Oceans to Inland Audiences

Connecting the Global Oceans to Inland Audiences

Connecting the global oceans to inland audiences – Online Tutorial and Lesson Plans

As part of the COSEE West – Colorado Collaborative we offered teacher professional development on a new ocean and climate topic each year accompanied by related lectures delivered by scientists on their cutting edge research. We have developed an online tutorial for educators to learn more about these topics. Originally offered as an online course (as indicated in the introductory video below), teachers now can pick and choose which topics they want to learn more about for their own knowledge or do with their students. 

Each module contains a Learning Sequence and Lesson Plans that educators can use in their classrooms. Most modules also include a lecture by a renowned scientist. The last module focuses on pedagogy and how to incorporate inquiry-based teaching and learning into your classroom. Learn more about the project.
