Welcome to The Educators PLC, a meeting designed for space science educators like you to engage in meaningful dialogue about teaching practices in planetariums. Our primary goal is to foster open conversations, where everyone’s input is valued, and we can learn from each other’s experiences.
During these monthly, hour-long sessions we’ll cover a range of topics, including content-standard alignment in programs, effective presentation skills for school groups, student session management, scheduling strategies, and discussions on current science events relevant to planetaria. Additionally, we may also delve into follow-ups from previous conference workshops or sessions.
To maintain a friendly and collaborative environment, we ask that you use your real name and organization when joining our discussions. This helps us ensure that the group is comprised of like-minded individuals passionate about education and planetarium-related topics.
Your participation is essential to our collective growth, and we welcome any questions, ideas, or experiences you’d like to share. Please feel free to engage actively in the discussions, as we believe the true value lies in the exchange of knowledge and insights.
Rest assured that your privacy is a top priority. These sessions will not be recorded, fostering a safe space for open and candid conversations.
Let’s make The Educators PLC a vibrant medium for year-round discussions that go beyond the confines of GLPA Conferences. Together, we can build a supportive community focused on enhancing planetarium education.
