›First International Workshop on Education in Astrobiology
The First International Workshop on Education in Astrobiology will take place in Höör, Sweden from 6 - 9 June 2013, The meeting aims to bring together scientists and teachers engaged in astrobiology education on universities and other training institutions to
• discuss new teaching and assessment forms in astrobiology
• foster international cooperation in astrobiology teaching
• give the attendants a thorough overview of the field
Training students in such a multidisciplinary subject implies a lot of challenges and pitfalls, both in the set-up and organization of the course, choice of lecturers and literature, grading of students as well as the necessity of new teaching methods. The conference will not only serve as forum for exchange of ideas and experiences, but also as a starting point for a long-term international collaboration in astrobiology teaching.
The meeting venue is held at the very pleasant Åkersberg Stiftsgård which is only a 50 min direct train ride from Copenhagen International Airport.
