AGU Session on “Arctic Education & Outreach - Effective Ways of Engaging Diverse Learners in Arctic Science" (ED31A)
December 13, 2023 | 8:30-10:00am PT | 203 - South (Level 2, South, Moscone Center)
The changing polar environments have created important scientific and societal concerns in high and lower latitudes. In this session we will share effective approaches, frameworks and examples of how to promote a broad understanding and awareness of the changing Arctic and the related societal implications. The session will highlight effective strategies to inspire learners in both formal and informal learning contexts as well as communities.
