Class Experience

As a marine scientist, I have had the privilege of working with Marine Protected Areas in Portugal. I have also taken post graduate courses on MPAs, including their science and legislation. 
Students will receive a pre-class reading assignment and activity to be completed independently before class. These are self guided to help students begin to think about the topic that will be addressed during the live class. The pre-class reading will be two pages long, and the pre-class activity should take no more than 30 minutes to complete.
Each week, pages will be posted to the classroom with the pre-class activities. These pages can be put together to make a workbook. The total size of the workbook is about 30 pages, with an introduction, class rules, checklists, activities and space for taking notes during class. It would be helpful to print the workbook but not compulsory.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
