2020 S/V Denis Sullivan Workshop
Thank you for taking time to complete the application for the 2020 Shipboard Workshop on the three-masted schooner, S/V Denis Sullivan. This year's cruise will take place from August 3-8, 2020 and will focus on using Indigenous Knowledge to enhance teaching about water and the Great Lakes. The workshop will begin and end in Milwaukee and will sail on western Lake Michigan.

To learn more about the workshop, view the flyer at https://go.wisc.edu/x1khjm and check out our video, Shipboard Science: Inspiring Great Lakes Educators at https://youtu.be/HTrZmyxZArg.

We are seeking both experienced Great Lakes educators and educators new to Great Lakes literacy who are interested in exploring the intersection between science and culture along western Lake Michigan and who are inspired to more deeply integrate Indigenous Knowledge into their teaching. Educators that work in formal and informal learning environments are welcome to apply.

There will be opportunities for MENTOR EDUCATORS to work with new Great Lakes literacy MENTEE EDUCATORS during the course of the workshop. If you are interested in being a mentor and unsure of what that entails, please email Anne Moser to discuss: akmoser@aqua.wisc.edu
