“From ABC to ABSeas: Ocean Literacy for all” is a free and online course organized as part of the Sea Change project. The project, funded by the European Union, aims to change the point of view of the population on the sea. This MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is aimed at science teachers and educators who want to expand their knowledge on this subject.
The aim of the course is to train teachers on the seas and oceans to understand its importance and be aware of both the influence they have on us as the influence that we have on them.
The course has been developed by a group of experts in the field of marine education, composed of experienced educators, teachers and researchers. The group will provide activities, support and advice to incorporate the Oceanic Culture in educational programs. The course language is English, but some sections and activities will also be available in Catalan and Spanish.
The course will begin next November 7, 2016.
