Call for hosting the Second Shaw-IAU Workshop on Astronomy for Education



The 2020 Shaw -IAU Workshop on Astronomy for Education will focus on an overview of education world wide.


It will be a fully online, virtual experience that will take place 6 - 9 October 2020.


The opening day of the workshop will also include the official opening ceremony of the OAE. We plan to have a number of sessions centered on different topics and adjusted to accomodate different time zones. Preliminary topics include "Astronomy in the school curriculum", "Astronomy in extracurricular activities", "How can we change curricula?" and "Environments for education"; proposals for additional session topics are welcome! Everyone from the astronomy education community is cordially invited to participate in the workshop and meet our newly appointed National Astronomy Education Coordinators (NAECs).
