[21.04] Learner-Centered Teaching Techniques in Astronomy 101

L. V. Jones, L. A. Marschall (Gettysburg College), E. Prather (University of Arizona)

We present preliminary results of studies done on learner-centered teaching techniques with students in Astronomy 101. Results for two classes taught at Gettysburg College this fall will be presented. One class used learner-centered activities, the other did not. A diagnostic survey was given to both classes before and after. Specific newly designed activities were tested as well.
