Ocean Sciences 2020 – Recap and Resources

OSM20 Data Lab Workshop table groupIt was wonderful to see so many of you at Ocean Sciences 2020 in San Diego last month – and we were equally happy to welcome many new members into our growing community.

You can find a recap of our Data Labs workshop, our Teaching with Data oral/poster sessions, along with presentations and poster slides and a wealth of other resources on our OSM 2020 Recap blog post.

Also, if you aren’t already signed up for our blog post alerts, we encourage you to subscribe to them for the latest posts on coding tips, data visualization and analysis, teaching with data tips and more. Community submissions are also welcome.

New Video: Data as a Tool

We’re excited to debut a new video resource you can use in your teaching!

For scientists, data is perhaps the most important tool for discovery. Data is what makes testing hypotheses and running experiments possible. But just like any tool, data needs to be used correctly.
This video focuses on big data and the OOI and is part of the Tools of Science video series.

We’re eager to hear your feedback on this new video or the others in the series, so feel free to drop us a note to let us know.

Implementation Stipends Available

A quick reminder that we are offering professors a $300 stipend for piloting a Data Exploration in your classroom.

We sincerely hope that you will participate in this effort to engage students with OOI data, while providing the project with valuable feedback. For more information please visit this page.
