Practicum in ocean literacy
This course follows a Project-based learning methodology. Students will work individually or in small teams (2 persons), supervised by an academic tutor, for developing a practical Project focused on one of the subjects taught in Current topics in Ocean Literacy. Examples may be the analysis and exploration of a new method of exploitation of local resources, the design of an educational activity for outreach of any important marine issue, the organization of a beach cleaning with educational components together with NGOs, or any other activity where the student will apply the knowledge acquired in Current topics. The student will prepare a formal project proposal for revision by the tutor. The revised project will be implemented in practice. If needed, meetings with stakeholders will be organized.
