THE OCEANOGRAPHY CLASSROOM • Back to Basics, With a Twist

Tom Garrison
First Paragraph

We are all teachers. If you are involved in pure or applied research you may not interact with students in the customary professorial way, but you are still a teacher. Our fast-moving interdisciplinary field guarantees you will be called upon to transmit information to groups of people. Whether they are peers, managers, or students, you will need to teach them.
