Teaching Oceanography

Friday 12:00-1:45pm PT / 1:00-2:45pm MT / 2:00-3:45pm CT / 3:00-4:45pm ET Online
Round Table Discussion


Katryn Wiese, City College of San Francisco

Oceans cover about 70% of the globe and have a major influence on all of Earth's systems. Teaching Oceanography integrates a wide range of disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, and geology. Students explore the connection between the natural world and society through examples such as historic navigation, exploration, and cultures and current events such as hazards, pollution, energy and mineral resources, and climate change. Join this roundtable discussion to share ideas and resources for how best to incorporate oceanography and its multi-disciplinary facets into our classrooms and laboratories as well as how we can adapt teaching lecture and labs in an online and hybrid teaching environment.

All roundtable discussions will take place online, via Zoom (unless otherwise noted). Participants will be sent links to the Zoom room and connection info will be posted below prior to the session start.
