ED24C:
Training and Communication Across Disciplines and Methodological Approaches in Marine Science I Posters

Session ID#: 84000

Session Description:
The ability to communicate, collaborate and work successfully within the interdisciplinary field of marine science increasingly requires the integration of different disciplines and methodological approaches such as field studies, laboratory experiments and numerical models. To think at an integrated systems level and to communicate across these fields will thus be a key skill for the next generation of multidisciplinary marine scientists.

Multiple reasons, including different traditions in practicing research, different use of language, and a lack of understanding (or skepticism) regarding other disciplines, can hinder the flow and access of information, and may lead to misinterpretation and misuse of information.

To overcome these hurdles scientists, educators and institutions need to develop the competences to apply and teach multi-disciplinary knowledge and to communicate and provide training across different methodological approaches.

In the spirit of FILAMO, we thus invite contributions presenting approaches of training, teaching and capacity building across different disciplines and methodological barriers in marine science. This includes, but is not limited to, tools and methods that improve the knowledge flow between different methodological fields, innovative approaches of teaching multi-disciplinary topics, examples showcasing best practice in communication across different disciplines and analyses focusing on identifying obstacles and solutions in multidisciplinary marine research.
