Need to teach your students astronomy but not sure how to do it? Elementary and Secondary School Teachers: Treat yourself to free astronomy training with a webinar, from 1er to February 19!
Different phenomena can be approached and studied in order to teach science and technology. This is the case with astronomy, which involves disciplines such as physics, chemistry and mathematics. We note, however, that many teachers feel helpless when the time comes to tackle astronomy in the classroom. Other teachers expressed an interest in improving their skills in this area, but noted that there were few training possibilities adapted to the teaching reality. Here is a golden opportunity!
From 1er until February 19, the organization Discovering the Universe offers free training to teachers and education stakeholders interested in discussing astronomy with students.
Through subjects such as the rotation of the Earth, the phenomenon of the seasons, the different phases of the Moon and the constellations, the training aims to equip teachers of the 3e cycle of primary and 1er secondary cycle in astronomy.
To do this, the training intends to popularize the basic concepts and theories of this field. She will offer ideas for learning activities and present effective teaching methods for her teaching and for engaging students. The organization will also make turnkey teaching and support material available. The activity was designed by Canadian astronomers, who say the links to school curricula are relevant and straightforward.
For three weeks, training participants will be invited to join a weekly webinar lasting approximately one hour. Since the presentation will be recorded, those interested but unable to attend either webinar will be able to replay them.
The activity is offered free of charge.
Those interested in this activity are invited to register on the organization's website.
