Astronomy Education Workshop 2000

Friday, September 22, 2:00 - 5:30 pm

Ferguson 114, UNL City Campus

Approximately 25 local high school and college educators met at the UNL campus to discuss the usage of instructional technology in astronomy education. Details on the offerings of the workshop are given below.

This workshop was targeted for college instructors of 100-level astronomy classes and high school instructors who presently teach astronomy or may be interested in developing an astronomy course. The workshop has three goals: 1) to acquaint educators with the new web-based astronomy "textbook" Online Journey Through Astronomy, 2) to introduce new developments in the UNL Department of Physics and Astronomy, and 3) to bring together members of the astronomy and physics teaching community to share ideas and identify potential collaborators.
