Good Afternoon....

Am making a contact on behalf of a colleague. Andy Lewis, Ph.D. from Cairns, Australia runs our Field Courses in Australia. Andy did his graduate work at James Cook University in Townsville. He is looking to offer an on-line course in Marine Biology. Are there any University of Junior College contacts that list members might be aware of that might be interested in such a program. Thank you in advance.

  Subject: free AMS grad classes- water cycle and oceans

  I have a couple of spots left in two online grad level courses.  Great for add on certifications, salary upgrades and recertification. The 13-week courses are offered twice a year to selected participants. They investigate the ocean or water cycle, an AMS datastreme course, funded by NSF, NOAA, and NASA.  

  More info can be found at http://www.ametsoc.org/amsedu/DS-Ocean/index.html for the oceans course and at http://www.ametsoc.org/amsedu/WES/index.html for the water cycle course.  

  From  these pages you can find a link for the course website.  

  Course requirements:
  Attend three scheduled course meetings. 
  Essentially participants are expected to read a chapter a week, answer 10-15 short answer questions, complete two invetigations that have lab book and online components (10-15 short answer questions each). emailing your work to a course mentor. Expect to spend an average of 3-4 hours each week on class work.  

  Participants recieve all course materials:
  Text and Study Guide, 
  Two earth globes and related material 
  Electronically-delivered weekly water news summaries and learning materials based on current water related environmental events 
  3 hours of free Graduate level credit from SUNY Brockport are awarded to successful participants.  

  Email Beth Jewell if you are interested, we will start the fall course the last week of August.
