Managed by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP), the NASA Galileo Educator Network (GEN) is a new teacher professional development program, employing a “train the trainer” model, and launching its first national Professional Development Institute (PDI). Become a NASA Galileo Educator Fellow through this 15-hour PDI for teacher leaders, teacher educators, and PD providers. Participants will learn how to deliver their own GEN professional development to assist K-12 teachers with the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, in the context of astronomy and space science. Participants will be able to receive reimbursement of travel expenses and a stipend upon delivery of their own 15-hour GEN professional development program for in-service or pre-service K-12 teachers in their home region.
