Science of Oceans, Physics and Education (iSCOPE)

The project, iSCOPE, brings together four partners in USA and Canada to use transdisciplinary approaches on high-quality multinational case studies to identify and evaluate (year 1), transfer and test (year 2) and iteratively test (year 3) excellent methods of educational intellectual stimulation in order to support and enhance University of Bergen and Norway’s leadership in teaching and research in marine biological sciences. The iSCOPE project is designed as a bridge between successful science education methodologies and the goals which UiB (BIO) aims to reach. Excellence in biology education will be evaluated and enhanced with world-class excellence from physics. The iSCOPE proposal builds on University of Bergen’s Center of Excellence In Biology Education (bioCEED) and the multi-award winning master course BIO300 Biology Bootcamp, as well as on UNESCO’s International Year of Light 20152 (IYL2015) project “Skylight – a Global Science Opera” lead by Stord/Haugesund University College (HSH).
