2019 Conference Strands:
Connecting cultures and communities
Do your programs reflect the diverse communities of your area? Do you address social justice and equity issues in aquatic and marine science programming? How do you make sure your curriculum is culturally sensitive and relevant to the students you serve? Share your tips, techniques and lessons learned for successfully connecting all learners with the aquatic world.
Innovative Teaching, Research and Restoration
Do you have a cool or new science lesson, restoration project, citizen science program, or community art project to share? Are you incorporating the latest breaking research into your teaching or bringing specialists into your classroom? We are looking for teachers, informal educators, researchers or marine science loving citizens who want to share an innovative new idea or project they have been working on.
Do you teach using your local community and landscape? How do you incorporate “calls to action” and solutions in discussions about human impacts on aquatic and marine ecosystems? Share your knowledge and tips about programming in your local setting and how you make the connection to our one big ocean.
