2013 Opportunities for Community College Faculty Professional Development
Summer 2013 Community College Faculty Institute on Marine Technology
COSEE PP is partnering with COSEE TEK (Technology and Engineering for Knowledge) to offer an institute focused on marine technology and ocean observing. Particular emphasis will be placed on helping faculty develop ways to engage their students in research within the community college setting. Housing and meals will be provided and participants will receive a $500 stipend ($100/day).
When: July 29 - August 2, 2013
Location: Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, Charleston, OR
What: Each day will include presentations by scientists who study the topic, curriculum materials (including lab exercises and field activities where appropriate) that could be used in a community college course, and time for participants to work on developing their own curriculum products using the information and materials presented. By the end of the week, each participant should have an action plan for the use of the material in their classes or in classes they are developing. The materials that the scientists present will be available to participants for use in the classroom.
