The 6th Shaw-IAU Workshop is scheduled to take place: 12 - 14 November 2024. The Shaw-IAU workshops focus on astronomy education for primary and secondary school students and teacher training both in universities and in service. This year's workshop will feature two special topics: an exploration of the first two years of the James Webb Space Telescope for the scientific topic, and the crucial aspect of evaluation in educational contexts as the non-scientific topic.
The complete list of sessions is listed below:

  • Science topic –James Webb Space Telescope, the first two years
  • Special topic – evaluation
  • Astronomy education research
  • Teaching methods and tools
  • Astronomy education in schools in practice (primary and secondary schools)

Talks and posters may be presented in any language, although abstracts will need to be submitted in English. In addition, English subtitles will be required for talks and English translations for posters if they are submitted in another language.

Following their success the last couple of years we also aim to host regional or special language sessions during the Workshop.
