Since 2004, the Center for Astronomy Education (CAE) has lead professional development workshops funded by JPL’s NASA Exoplanet Exploration Public Engagement Program (ExEP). Workshops are for current and future instructors of college-level astronomy and space science. The workshop will help participants become familiar with research-validated instructional strategies and assessment materials appropriate for introductory astronomy and space science courses. It will also increase the participants’ ability to use best practices in their implementation of instructional materials. CAE invites you to participate in one of their many workshops in 2011, and learn how to kick off teaching your class with exoplanet curriculum.
