Ocean literacy means understanding the ocean’s influence on us, and our influence on the ocean. Both are endlessly complex, and Peter Tuddenham knows this vast and fascinating area well. He is a co-founder of the College of Exploration, which over the past 20 years has engaged over 15,000 learners worldwide in online collaborative learning environments. Participants from a wide variety of disciplines and countries meet online to explore, learn and create with each other on a variety of ecosystem topics, especially ocean, earth and climate systems. The Ocean Literacy program is designed for learners of all ages who want to know more about the dynamic system that has such an impact on life on earth. Tuddenham is a Co-Principal Investigator on a number of National Science Foundation and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grants researching the subjects of literacy, change and learning in complex national systems. Tuddenham served for three years as guest faculty in Executive Development at the US Army War College studying personal transformation for mid-career officers. This action research was part of a five year research project on the selection and development of three and four star generals in the US Army. He has studied Systems Design at Saybrook University in San Francisco and the Open University in England. He has a BS in Business from Regis University in Denver Colorado. Before moving to the U.S. he was commissioned as an officer in the British Army Corps of Royal Engineers from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.


Peggy Siegel has spent her entire career actively engaged in improving education, including work as a senior staff person in the Ohio General Assembly, education program manager at the National Conference of State Legislatures, management consultant and researcher with two global firms (Pelavin/AIR and Cresap/Towers Perrin), director of business and education leadership initiatives for the National Alliance of Business, and vice president for strategic alliances for AdvancED, a global accrediting organization in K-12 education. She has also moon-lighted as a hotel deejay for a number of years in Washington, DC. Peggy earned a liberal arts degree, MA degree in political science, and a PhD in education leadership, all from Ohio State, as well as a senior executive fellowship from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. As an experienced strategist, thought partner, "boundary-crosser,” and independent writer, Peggy currently reinforces the nexus between policy and practice as well as cross-sector collaboration by strategically reframing the dialogue and then chronicling transformation initiatives in real time and over time.
