Always Under Construction.
I'm collecting information for this notebook; I won't pretend to be an expert, although I've dabbled in many of the topics presented here. I welcome comments (preferably constructive), contributions, and notes about other relevant sites or resources.
At the 1995 ASP symposium "Astronomy Education: Current Developments, Future Directions", I said I would collect and place here any advice people had on how to improve the format of a large lecture course. I've posted excerpts and a summary of one article -- I sure would like more.
I'm involved in K-12, public education, and college science for the nonmajor, so this notebook will probably not be balanced. Astronomy for the astronomy major doesn't have much representation, and I haven't collected much for college science yet.
When I first started mucking about in science education, I found that I and others were constantly re-inventing the wheel. I'd like us to have a community memory so we spend less time re-inventing and more time refining and actually doing. That's the main purpose of this document. Here are things I think will help:
