The Ohio Sea Grant Education Program: Development, Implementation, Evaluation. Revised.
Mayer, Victor J.; Fortner, Rosanne W.
In 1975, the Columbus Council of the Navy League of the United States provided a grant to The Ohio State University in support of a state survey to determine the level of understanding of marine information among the public school children of Ohio. In addition, it supported a summer workshop in the Humanities of the Seas conducted for teachers in Ohio schools. Thirty teachers participated from all parts of the state. These events marked the beginning of the program in Marine and Aquatic Education now conducted through Ohio Sea Grant. They in turn lead to the development of the Ohio Sea Grant Education Program. In the process of its development, a particular organization and philosophy has been implemented that may be of interest as a model for other Sea Grant Education programs and indeed for other programs seeking to improve education in any area of concern. This monograph has been designed to provide a detailed explanation of the organization and philosophy of the program and the rationale used in each of its elements. In addition, a detailed description of the methods and results of extensive evaluation efforts are included. Additional articles, including research, and examples from the program are appended. (CW)
