Much has happened since my last blog. On Aug. 14th, I set off a train of events that has resulted in me now serving as the Manager of Communications and Engagement for Ocean Networks Canada.- the not-for-profit organization created by the University of Victoria to provide governance and management of VENUS and NEPTUNE Canada ocean observatories.
One of my principal responsibilities is to advance ocean education (literacy) among non-scientific audiences nationally and internationally.
I'm retaining EKOS Communications with the very able assistance of Starr, but I'm letting go of teaching. I'm teaching my last class now. After the end of this term, there will be no more. I'll miss the interaction of young adults at a point in their lives when they are asking big and important questions of themselves.
