Online Course: Teaching About the Marine Environment, Grades 5-12

The Department of Environmental Studies at the University of North Carolina Wilmington will be offering an online course this fall: EVS 592 Teaching about the Marine Environment.  This course, developed and taught by Dr. Rosanne Fortner, former President of the National Marine Educators Association and Director of COSEE Great Lakes, offers classroom-based methods for ocean education. Explore online sources and exemplary print materials for grades 5-12, many adaptable for informal learning. Match the lessons to your [prospective] curriculum and adapt to your setting with expert assistance. The course is completely online and asynchronous.  Since this course carries 3 hours of graduate credit, you must first apply to UNCW as a non-degree graduate before registering for the course (click here). Information on course tuition and fees can be found here.  Applications must be received by July 1, but the earlier, the better because seating is very limited.
