The National Academy of Marine Research has signed a copyright license agreement with the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley, regarding the "Ocean Science Sequence" (OSS) teaching materials. Dr. Chen Jiahn-horng, President of the National Academy of Marine Research, and Craig Strang, Vice Director of the Teaching Department at the Lawrence Hall of Science, co-signed the agreement via a video conference. Jonathan Curley, Senior Course Specialist from the Learning Design Team at the Lawrence Hall of Science was also invited to attend and give a congratulatory speech. This marks a new chapter in the joint promotion of ocean literacy through the Ocean Science Sequence by both parties. The signing ceremony took place inside the National Museum of Marine Science and Technology.
The President of the National Academy of Marine Research, Chen Jiahn-horng, pointed out that the Ocean Science Sequence teaching material, published by the Education Department of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), helps students in exploring important marine science concepts. The material provides learning opportunities that guide students in independently uncovering the mysteries of marine life and understanding how the ocean influences their daily lives. Students can learn with joy, inspiring continued exploration of the ocean and the natural world. The material also connects with international concepts of ocean literacy, introducing Taiwanese people to international ocean literacy materials.
The President of the National Academy of Marine Research, Chen Jiahn-horng, emphasized that the signing of this copyright license agreement will enhance the academy's future efforts to promote international ocean literacy. It will enhance people's understanding of basic principles and foundational concepts about the ocean, sustainable development centered on the ocean, and interactions between the ocean, the surrounding environment, and living organisms. Moreover, it will help establish comprehensive ocean literacy and the future citizens’ adaptability to global changes by connecting them with the ocean.
