Strang, C., Dorph, R., & Halversen, C. (2005). Communicating ocean sciences: a course that improves education & public outreach. Paper presented at the Marine Technology Society Conference.
Together educators and ocean scientists have developed and teach a university course entitled Communicating Ocean Sciences that is now being taught in several institutions of higher education nationwide. The course is designed for undergraduate and graduate science students interested in improving their ability to communicate about complex science concepts. This paper focuses on the content, outcomes, and potential of the Communicating Ocean Sciences course.
