Title: Center for Astronomy Education
Url: https://astronomy101.jpl.nasa.gov/
Publisher: Jet Propulsion Laboratory (U.S.)
Description: The focus of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Astronomy Education is simple, yet important: it is "dedicated to the professional development of introductory astronomy instructors." To that end, this website provides articles from guest bloggers, educational materials, and an array of high-quality resources. On the homepage, visitors can view sections that include Teaching Strategies, Publications, and Seeing the Universe. The Teaching Strategies area includes guest posts from college level astronomy instructors, while the archive includes posts focused on classroom assessment, curriculum, and goals. Moving on, the Seeing the Universe area includes an archive of images that can be used in the astronomy classroom. One of the best overall resources in the Teaching Strategies section is "You Don't Have to Do it from Scratch," which teaches instructors how to use conventional PowerPoint lectures more effectively. Finally, visitors can connect with the Center via Facebook and other social media sites.
