2.5-Day Workshop for Instructors

About the 2.5-Day Workshop…
This workshop at the University of California Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science is designed for scientist/science educator teams that plan to co-teach the undergraduate and graduate course, Communicating Ocean Sciences or Communicating Ocean Sciences to Informal Audiences. During this 2.5-day workshop we will provide you with:

  • Complete syllabus and instructor's guide;
  • A full set of curricula for students to take into local classrooms for COS-K12, or COSIA activities that students can use in informal learning environments;
  • Correlations of course curriculum to pedagogy and National Science Education Standards;
  • Documentation to get the course listed at your site;
  • Ongoing technical assistance to ensure successful implementation of the course;
  • An introduction to each of the class sessions; and
  • Help to customize the syllabus for your local setting and needs.

"Co-teaching the class has been fun and gratifying. It is great to have the opportunity to think beyond the typical college lecture format. I have incorporated some of the sessions into my other marine science classes, and my teaching skills have definitely improved, particularly my ability to lead successful class discussions."
