Shaw-IAU Workshop on Astronomy for Education

Kate Meredith GLAS Education

The IAU Office of Astronomy for Education

Registration is now open for the 3rd Shaw-IAU Workshop on Astronomy for Education, held virtually from 12 to 15 October 2021.

The focus of this workshop is all about opportunities for everybody who is active in astronomy education, whether as a practitioner or an education researcher, to go back to the basics. What are the things that, in an ideal world, all of us should know? Which new developments, effective teaching methods, evaluation techniques, and which aspects of astronomy education research should all of us be aware of?

Topics include effective teaching and evaluation methods, core content in astronomy, low-tech activities, and remote observing. Attendees should check the schedule carefully as many sessions repeat at different times to accommodate international attendance.

You can view the full list of speakers on the Shaw Workshop website. The deadline to register is 12 October.
