"Anti-Faculty" meetings for Astro101
Friday, January 11, 2019
Posted by: Sharon Shanks
For planetarians (and others) who teach astronomy on a college/university level and despair because they feel isolated and all alone, take heart: Astro Base Camp (ABC) welcomes you.
Just for you
As announced by Katie Berryhill and Tim Slater on Dome-L, ABC is a weekly video teleconference - an "anti-faculty meeting" - to discuss issues and problems you are facing with your classes with colleagues.
From Dome-L: "This spring, Astro Base Camp meets via zoom desktop video-teleconferencing on Mondays at 6pm eastern, 5pm central, 4pm mountain, and 3pm pacific (folks in Arizona, Hawai'i, and Australia will have to guess what time that is) during the academic year.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS
Our next Astro Base Camp meeting is at 6pm eastern, 5pm central, 4pm mountain, and 3pm pacific starting Monday, January 14, 2019 and on Mondays thereafter for the rest of the semester. We meet using zoom at http://zoom.us/my/caperteam from your phone or computer.
Moreover, if you'd like to extend the conversation outside of our weekly hour-long meeting, we are all set up at astrobasecamp.slack.com to continue the discussion, share materials, and otherwise commune remotely with like-minded astronomy educators for support, brainstorming, and camaraderie. As a first step on the journey, come over and sign up at https://tinyurl.com/abc-signup-23, then mark your calendar for Monday afternoons."
