THE OCEANOGRAPHY CLASSROOM • How Good Are Your Data?

Matthias Tomczak
First Paragraph

One characteristic of universities that makes them unique as teaching institutions is the involvement of their teachers in research. The capability to draw on personal research experience allows lecturers to go beyond the presentation of results obtained by others. By showing examples of the scientific process at work, lecturers enhance students’ ability to better judge the reliability and accuracy of results presented from scientific studies.
