Learn About Astrobites in the Classroom at #AAS229

Do you wish you could ground your undergraduate classes more thoroughly in the latest astronomical research? Do you want to expose your students not just to facts, but also to the process of science? We will show you how you can use Astrobites to enhance your students’ experience in our workshop, Introducing Current Research Into Your Classroom, at lunchtime on Wednesday at the 229th AAS meeting!

Over the span of this 1.5-hour workshop, we will provide an overview of Astrobites and discuss several different ways that you can use Astrobites to bring the most recent astronomical research into your undergraduate classroom. You will then have the opportunity to develop original lesson plans and curriculum materials with the assistance of Astrobites authors and administrators.

This workshop is for all current/future undergrad and grad educators! You can register for the workshop when you register for the meeting. Please register for #AAS229 before November 14th to avoid late fees.

See you in Grapevine!
