In the summer of 2010, COSEE-OS debuted the "ROLE Model" webinar series in response to educator feedback requesting more interaction with research scientists. In addition to providing educators timely access to scientists and their ongoing research, these webinars provide scientists a chance to interact with educators while presenting their research in a non-traditional format - through multimedia concept maps created with the Concept Map Builder (CMB) and presented through the Ocean Climate Interactive (OCI).
Unlike traditional slide-based presentations, these dynamic maps act as a resource that can be explored with an audience, instead of a one-way, linear presentation. The concept maps presented are loaded with educational assets from the OCI database - including images, videos, news items - that webinar participants can use in their own educational practices, presentations or for their own learning.
The ROLE Model webinars include:
A presentation from a research scientist who has developed a concept map specifically for the webinar - on relevant science topics, cutting-edge research or specific interest areas - that includes a rich collection of "assets" from the Ocean Climate Interactive.
A presentation by COSEE-OS staff about how to use the CMB and OCI to create and view concept maps.
Presentations from educators about "the basics" of concept mapping as well as the unique and varied ways they have used concept mapping in their classroom, informal or other learning environment (first eight webinars only).
