Southern California Regional Teaching Exchange

Presented by Rica French (MiraCosta College) and hosted by MiraCosta College

CAE Regional Teaching Exchanges are designed to foster a sense of community amongst geographically linked current and future Astro 101 instructors. We at CAE don’t want you to feel isolated, and we don’t want you to have to wait to attend (or re-attend) a CAE Tier I or Tier II workshop to continue your professional development. We have regional experts from the broader CAE community ready, willing, and able to provide the opportunity for you to meet your neighbors, expand your instructional repertoire, and share your own expertise.

We will start out the day with a brief introduction about the Center for Astronomy Education and what we do, a brief overview of active learning, and then we will start introducing techniques including Think-Pair-Share, Lecture-Tutorials and Ranking Tasks. We'll even cover some ClassAction materials.

Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.

So grab your colleagues—instructors, graduate students, and postdocs, alike—and join the Exchange!

This workshop is now closed. If you would like to be added to a waiting list, please send us an email. Thank you.
