LIVE FROM THE DUKE MARINE LAB: MARINE MEGAFAUNA AND SCIENCE EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY WITH DR. DAVE JOHNSTON

Wed., Feb. 25, 2015
12:15 – 1:15 PM EST
WebEx Virtual Conferencing

Join us this February for a webinar with the Duke Marine Lab's Dr. Dave Johnston, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Marine Conservation & Ecology. Dr. Johnston’s research focuses on the ecology and habitat needs of marine vertebrates in relation to pressing conservation issues such as climate change, habitat loss, ocean noise, incidental mortality and overharvests.

Dr. Johnston will share share some of his work with (and photos of!) marine megafauna that has taken him everywhere from tropical zones to Earth’s polar regions. Deeply involved with cutting-edge science communication technology, Dr. Johnston has also integrated digital textbooks, apps, and MOOCs into his teaching, and will discuss lessons learned from using the latest virtual tools to enrich science education.
