Join our Team! Be part of a pilot of the OOI Data Lab Notebook for Introductory Oceanography Courses


Are you looking for ways to incorporate large data sets into your classes that are student and teacher friendly?  Whether you are teaching remotely or face-to-face, we have a collection of NEW online laboratories that focus on important oceanographic themes and topics.

Beginning in January 2020, a team of faculty contributors worked to compile a sequence of OOI Data Labs into an online laboratory manual.  It includes topics in biological, chemical, physical and geological oceanography for use in typical Introductory Oceanography courses.  The manual is a collection of 8 lab exercises, with built-in assessments, and accompanying instructor guides.  See the collection on on our web site.

Now, we need your help to “test drive” these lab exercises with your students!  We are seeking a pilot implementation team of 14-16 faculty to implement 2 labs with students this Fall.  We are offering a $750 stipend which includes a training webinar (August 26, 4-5pm EDT), detailed feedback and evaluation, and a wrap-up session.  The implementation must be completed by December 2020.

Applications are closed; the pilot test cohort will be announced soon.
