We are providing free professional development trainings for informal educators to:
- increase their familiarity in "Calendar in the Sky" topics and resources,
- learn about and share best practices in public programming for Latinos in informal settings,
- get ideas for an informal education event or program around astronomy, Maya culture and the year 2012, and
- create opportunities for networking between participants (especially with Latino community members), allowing for future interactions and/or collaborations.
These trainings are intended for informal educators from a broad range of venues: museums, science centers, community leaders, parks, astronomical societies, Latino cultural organizations, libraries, etc. This professional development was in the form of 2-day workshops, held between November 2011 and March 2012 in six metropolitan areas: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, Chicago and Miami. Starting in the spring of 2012, we began a monthly series of online webinars about Calendar in the Sky topics.
If you are interested in attending one of these trainings, please fill out the following form and we will inform you when we have opened registration for it.
