Pre-workshop Checklist

To make the most of our synchronous workshop sessions, we are asking you to do a few tasks in advance:

  • Read or review the 2050 Framework for Scientific Ocean Drilling or, if you have limited time, the Summary of the 2050 Framework for Scientific Ocean Drilling
  • Explore the International Ocean Discovery Program and USSSP websites (for programmatic information) and the JOIDES Resolution website (for public outreach)
  • Review (at least scan over) our Education and Outreach White Paper to familiarize yourself with strategies and programs we already do
  • Watch these short videos about
  • Spend some time thinking about the workshop questions, so that you will be ready to engage in conversations about them:
    • What tools of engagement work best (e.g., videos, social media, curricula, books, events, etc.) in your community/organization?
    • What questions do you (your community) have about deep ocean exploration and how the Earth works?
    • How do the people in your community connect science and cultural world views?
    • How can we foster partnerships and collaborations between your community and scientific ocean drilling?
  • Introduce yourself via our workshop discussion board
    • NOTE: The discussion board is also in our private, password-protected workspace. To access the upload form, you will need a SERC account. If you have a SERC account but cannot access the photo upload form via the link above, please contact Carol Ormand (cormand AT carleton DOT edu).
    • If you do not yet have a SERC account, create your account by filling out the form on the right side of this account page.

Contact Carol Ormand (cormand AT carleton DOT edu) if you need assistance.
  • Upload a photo or other image, with a short description, inspired by one or more of the questions above. We will share these images with the workshop community via a page in our private workspace.
