Workshops for Undergraduate Professors – Bringing the OOI into the Classroom

Utilizing high volumes of data for research and education increases both opportunities and challenges to analyzing and synthesizing these data into scientific understanding. We are pleased to offer two workshops that explore the unprecedented opportunities to engage undergraduate learners in authentic data experiences using real-world data sets, models, and simulations from the OOI.

Chemistry and OOI Data Workshop – May 19-21, 2017
This workshop will focus on OOI data sets that explore salinity, pH, and PCO2 .

Geology and OOI Data Workshop – June 2-4, 2017
This workshop will look at the resources (video and data assets) from the Axial Seamount.

Both Workshops will take place at the University Inn and Conference Center at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ.

Undergraduate Professors teaching introductory level Oceanography courses are invited to participate. These workshops are for professors interested in assisting the OOI in developing teaching applications using OOI data. Our objective is to use online OOI data to teach oceanographic concepts as well as data orientation, interpretation, and synthesis skills.

Travel, meals, hotel accomodations, and a small stipend will be provided for those participating in the workshop. Approximately 10 professors will be selected for each workshop.

Interested Professors should fill out an application:
