Communicating Climate Change Science

The goal is to use Web 2.0 to educate the public in the mechanics and aims of climate change models. A university course, entitled ‘Communicating Climate Change Science’ has been designed and will be offered in Winter 2009. The course will provide a series of exercises that review and analyze Internet resources for transmitting climate information to publics with varying levels of education. Our GEOIDE affiliates will be surveyed by students to assess their information needs with respect to climate change science and models. During the course students will communicate with other GEOIDE members and students in Team 41. To maximize the outcome of the course, GEC3 has invited a series of international speakers to meet with class members
