Interaction with COSEE Network:
I am a COSEE Council member and I have attended Network meetings.
Background with Respect to Ocean Sciences Education:
I am an Associate Professor and the Academic Coordinator at the University of Oregon’s Institute of Marine Biology. I study the natural history of marine birds and mammals and have taught at the Institute for over 20 years. In addition, I am the Principal Investigator of the NSF Faculty Institutes for Reforming Science Teaching project, which has provided professional development opportunities for biology faculty at colleges and universities throughout the nation. I am also the co-director on an NSF GK-12 project “Learning About Where We Live” that connects the Institute to local schools and brings a marine science curriculum to 3000 kindergarten through sixth grade students who live along the southern Oregon coast.
