Teaching Oceanography and the Geosciences

What’s new in the study of our planet’s oceans and how do today’s teachers get students interested in the environment? Dr. “Deepsea” Dawn Wright, Professor of Geography and Oceanography at Oregon State University, was among the recipients of the 2007 U.S. Professors of the Year Award, bestowed by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. She’s in town to address the 2008 Geotech Conference at Bishop Dunne High School in Dallas and will be our guest this hour.
