“Exemplary Practices in Marine Science Education,” co-edited by Diana L. Payne of Connecticut Sea Grant, has been
published by Springer Nature, which calls it the “first international book on marine science education and ocean literacy.”
The 452-page book for marine science educators and researchers will be a resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in science and education, according to the publisher. It showcases “exemplary practices in marine science education and educational research on a global scale,” according to the publisher’s summary.
Payne, education coordinator at Connecticut Sea Grant, edited the book with Géraldine Fauville and Annika Lantz-Andersson, both of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden; Meghan E. Marrero of Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.; and Fiona Crouch of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom.
The book includes sections on marine science education in formal, informal and community settings.
“We’re very excited to share this collection of work from educators around the world, working in classrooms, at the beach and in laboratories,” Payne said. “It is truly an international effort. We know it will advance teaching, learning and research in marine science education and ocean literacy.”
