Week One: Frank Parrish, Ph.D. - Keynote presentation.
Dr. Frank Parrish specializes in habitat ecology and has published papers on lobsters, bottom fish, reef fish, deepwater corals and most recently the Hawaiian monk seal. In these studies he employs a range of tools including mixed gas diving, submarines and, since 1995, Crittercam. He will discuss his research and his role in the race to identify the critical foraging habitat of the endangered Hawaiian monk seal. Dr. Parrish will be online for sessions throughout the week to work with participants.
Breakout Discussion Sessions
In addition to interacting with keynote speakers, throughout the online course, participants will also be able to participate online in the discussion sessions, which will be lead by a team of experts. These discussion sections will focus on Teacher Resource and Activities with special breakout sessions for elementary, middle school and high school teachers on each topic
Note: The presenters will most likely NOT be online after sometime late afternoon on Friday, but the workshop will remain open to all participants - and you will still be able to post comments, and interact among yourselves.
