Symposium on Education (4th, Dallas, Texas, January 15-20, 1995).
American Meteorological Society, Boston, MA.
The theme of this symposium was "Opening the Doors to the Future: Education in the Classroom and Beyond." Presentations, both oral and poster, are devoted to both K-12 and university educational issues in meteorological and oceanographic education. Oral presentations include: (1) "The Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Science-Revision of the 1987 AMS Statement" (Phillip Smith, S. Businger, E. Pani, and J. Zebransky); (2) "Meteorology's Educational Dilemma" (Paul Croft and M. Binkley); (3) "Involvement of Undergraduate Meteorology Students in Faculty Research Projects" (Gregory Byrd, R. Weinback, R. Ballentine, A. Stamm, and E. Chermack); (4) "Creating and Maintaining Enthusiasm for the Undergraduate Major" (Dayton Vincent and P. Smith); (5) "Weather Education at the Introductory College Level" ( Robert Weinback and I. Greer); (6) "Weather and Life: A Cognitive Apprenticeship in Personalized Multidisciplinary Problem Solving" (Paul Croft and M. Tessmer); (7) "New Meteorology Program at the U.S. Air Force Academy Integrates Comet Multimedia and Computer Weather Lab into Undergraduate Curriculum" (Thomas Koehler, K. Blackwell, D. Knipp, B. Heckman); (8) "Integration of Interactive Multimedia into the Meteorology Curriculum at the United States Air Force Academy" (Delores Knipp and B. Heckman); (9) "A Survey of the Use of COMET's(R) Forecaster's Multimedia Library in the Academic Community" (Brian Heckman); (10) "Symbolic Manipulators in the Classroom: Using Student Research Topics in Oceanography and Meteorology to Enhance Teaching/Learning of Advanced Mathematics" (Reza Malek-Madani, D. Smith, and C. Gunderson); (11) "Classroom Applications of Interactive Meteorological Visualization" (Michael Biggerstaff and J. Nielsen-Gammon). The poster presentations include topics of interest for both K-12 and university educators. Two joint sessions focused on K-12 educational programs and new technologies for the classroom. The joint session with the 11th Conference on Interactive Information Processing Systems for Meteorology, Oceanography, and Hydrology included demonstrations of hardware and software systems designed to enhance meteorological and oceanographic education.
