Spector, Barbara S., Comp.
This document is a summary account of the proceedings of the first in a series of informal meetings convened by the Office of Sea Grant (OSG) to further marine education in the United States. The document should assist educators participating in future meetings by making it possible to avoid the necessity to re-define basic concepts and principles. No attempt has been made to prioritize, shorten, or highlight any of the items that were discussed. Items include statements by Bob Shephard and by Barbara Spector (Program Director, National Sea Grant College Program). Areas addressed in Shephard's statement include: general and OSG organization; support for marine education, pass-through funding, National Sea Grant support for marine education, and others. Areas addressed in Spector's statement include her responsibilities, nation-wide perception of needs, money for quality assessment workshops, marine education's needs, list of most pressing needs, education components within different Sea Grant programs, and others. Additional items included are the luncheon meeting notes; vocabulary; other activities/discussions; and possible Sea Grant-Cooperative Extension (4-H) cooperation. Three appendixes and handouts given out at the meeting are also provided. Among the information presented in the handouts are education/training goals and objectives for marine education and statement of role of state marine education coordinator. (JN)
