AB: NSF funding for Education and Outreach has provided researchers with an excellent opportunity to transfer their knowledge from the field to the classroom and community. Various Education/Outreach programs have been established to assist scientists in locating formal and informal educators who can assist in marine and land-based research projects. This merger allows scientists to focus on their research while the educators translate the scientific concepts to their students and the community through appropriate teaching strategies and pedagogy. As more teachers venture into the field with researchers, it is becoming imperative to develop a clear understanding of the expectations between the researchers, teachers, and supporting agencies. This presentation, developed in collaboration with researchers, educators, and Education/Outreach facilitators, provides suggested guidelines for researchers and educators to consider as they venture into Teacher/Researcher projects.
