Scientists and Graduate Students
Since fall 2005, COSEE-OS has helped 21 scientists at 6 institutions to develop Broader Impacts plans for their NSF, NOAA and NASA proposals. In addition, COSEE-OS has provided Broader Impacts professional development for 41 scientists at 12 institutions and 22 graduate students/post-docs at 5 institutions. This intensive communications training has been largely in the form of developing and presenting concept maps to non-scientists within workshops and at national educator conferences.
COSEE-OS is dedicated to fostering educator-scientist collaborations with a focus on investigating how inland audiences can better understand how the oceans affect their everyday lives. Since 2006, over 160 educators from 27 states -- as far away as Idaho and California -- have participated in summer professional development workshops at the Universities of Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Maryland, and at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Some of our workshop attendees have also been sponsored to participate in national conferences .
