The optional Lecture Reports are exercises in listening comprehension, critical thinking, and writing.
Four times a semester, students can attend a designated marine-related lecture and write a lecture report. Eligible lectures will be listed on Lani Aina Kai, or a lecture can be suggested by a student, who can discuss its eligibility with the instructor. A lecture report covers what the student learned from the lecture.
