Teacher Training and School Curriculum: Examples from Canada
10:15 - 10:30
When offering astronomy workshops for teachers, how closely should we follow the expected school curriculum? Each province across Canada has its own science curriculum, which creates a challenge for pan-Canadian programs such as Discover the Universe. Our online astronomy training program for teachers has navigated the similarities and differences in these curricula for nearly 10 years. During this presentation, I will discuss the challenges and constraints of offering online training adapted for several curricula, the solutions we are using, as well as the recent inclusion of Indigenous knowledge.
