"Improving educators’ capacity to teach about the Great Lakes"
This short presentation will consist of an overview of a web-based resource I created to help teachers identify curricula they can use to teach about the Great Lakes and related issues http://www.great-lakes.net/teach/teachers/). I will briefly describe the various features of the site, how it was developed, and present select evaluation results. Teachers often ask natural scientists to assist them in their efforts to teach about environmental issues such as those confronting the Great Lakes. This site is one scientists can refer them to for relevant teaching resources.


"Communicating for Sustainability: Insights from Psychology"
Most of us who care deeply about certain issues want to foster changes in the behavior of others. For example, those of us concerned about climate change want individuals to adopt behaviors that reduce C02 emissions. This presentation will attempt to correct misperceptions many individuals have about how to best foster behavior change and offer alternative suggestions.
