Géraldine Fauville has a double background both in marine biology and in education sciences. She has been managing marine education projects in collaboration with Stanford University for the past five years developing several types of digital learning resources for high school students focusing on climate change and ocean acidification issues (Inquiry-to-Insight, Virtual Marine Scientist and I2SEA).
Géraldine is also involved in the Horizon 2020 project on ocean literacy, SeaChange. The aim is to contribute to an 'ecosystem-based approach' relationship between EU citizens and the ocean. This will be achieved by combining marine environmental knowledge and insights from educational science into activities for social participation and innovation.
Géraldine has been a member of the University of Gothenburg Learning and Media Technology Studio (LETStudio) since 2010. In September 2013, she started her PhD studies in pedagogy, at the Department of Education, Communication and Learning. Her PhD project, rooted in sociocultural traditions, aims to provide knowledge of the use of computer-based resources by high school students in relation to developing ocean literacy through enabling space promoting collaboration within formal education.
Géraldine is also a co-founder of the European Marine Science Educators Association aiming to empower formal and informal educators to teach about the marine environment but also to create a network of marine educator stakeholders willing to establish a more ocean literate future for our society.
