Abstract

Ocean literacy content is lacking in the Namibian course curricula. If people are not knowledgeable of the ocean and its importance, they will be less inclined to actively protect it through sustainable practices. EduVentures is an organization in Namibia promoting sustainable practices through Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Our goal was to develop online modules to train teachers in the topic of ocean literacy in order for them to integrate the concepts into their lessons. To develop the module, we collaborated with the Ministry of Fisheries in Namibia. Throughout the module development process, we received and incorporated feedback on our module from the Ministry and EduVentures. Our final module will be used in teacher training workshops run by the Ministry of Fisheries.
