OAE Opens Call for Teacher Training Program

Published: 1st March 2023 08:00 (UTC)

The Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE) is pleased to announce the call for proposals for the Teacher Training Program, which enables our National Astronomy Education Coordinators (NAECs), together with a local teacher and astronomer, to apply for a grant in support of a Teacher Training and development workshop in their country.

We invite and encourage anyone working in astronomy education together with their NAECs to submit proposals for financial support of up to 2000 Euros, to organise and run the teacher training and development workshop in 2023.

This dedicated grant requires collaboration between one NAEC team member, a local teacher, and if possible, also an astronomer to develop a workshop on a topic of their choice.

In 2022, we supported 21 TTP workshops across the world, and we hope to support more high-impact proposals in 2023. With the support from OAE Centre Italy, we will also have dedicated funding for primary and middle school teacher training and development programs around the Mediterranean.

All information and eligibility criteria as well as rules can be found on our webpage: https://astro4edu.org/ttp/. The application deadline is 01 May 2023.

The condition that the workshop is developed in collaboration with a NAEC team member and submitted by this NAEC team member is mandatory. If you are a teacher or astronomer interested in running such a workshop, please contact a NAEC in your country to see if they wish to collaborate: https://www.astro4edu.org/naec-network/. The OAE currently has NAECs in about 115 countries worldwide.

Don’t hesitate to contact us at ttp​atastro4edu.org if you have any questions.
