The Oceans Learning Partnership (OLP) is a collaborative network of over 20 partner organizations. Our shared goal is to integrate ocean science and career education into the K-12 school system in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada’s most easterly province. OLP’s Board of Directors includes representatives from our partner organizations as well as external advisors and experts in a variety of related fields.
Experiential Learning is the cornerstone of OLP’s educational programming. Since 2012 we have been developing innovative new educational programming that combines hands-on field experiences that are linked to Grades 4-12 curriculum outcomes.
An exciting new slate of hands-on programming is being developed and field-tested with our partner network, from summer internships for high school students to field placements for pre-service teachers. The prototype for an online collaborative platform linking educators and participating schools region-to-region is also in development.
