Summary:NASA's Center for Astronomy Education, or CAE, announces a series of educator workshops for astronomy and space science educators. These workshops provide participants with experiences needed to create effective and productive active-learning classroom environments. Workshop leaders model best practices in implementing many different classroom-tested instructional strategies. But more importantly, workshop participants will gain first-hand experience implementing these proven strategies. During many microteaching events, you will have the opportunity to role-play the parts of student and instructor. You will assess and critique each other's implementation in real time as part of a supportive learning community. You will have the opportunity to use unfamiliar teaching techniques in collaboration with mentors before using them with your students. CAE is funded through NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Exoplanet Exploration Program. Type of Organization: Science Organization; Event Date Notes: Various workshop dates for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall 2015/2016; Audience: Space Science educators
