ASTRONOMY EDUCATION PROFESSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

(July 18, Portland, Ore.)

This workshop focuses on learning how to create productive learner-centered teaching environments for college-level introductory astronomy classes. Participants will achieve this through reviewing research on the nature of teaching and learning; setting course goals and objectives; and using interactive lectures, peer instruction, engaging demonstrations, collaborative groups, lecture-tutorials, ranking tasks, and online homework systems.
