Dear AbSciCon attendee,

The newly formed Center for Education Through Exploration (ETX) at Arizona State University, in collaboration with Smart Sparrow, a recent Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grantee, invites you to a special AbSciCon workshop.

Engage in the next wave of interactive, adaptive, exploration-driven approaches to teaching science at scale, based on the ASU Online astrobiology course, Habitable Worlds. Learn about the new Inspark Science Teaching Network, a digitally-powered community of educators creating and sharing next-generation courseware and technology.

Read more: Scientific American article on Habitable Worlds & Inspark Education.

There is no cost to register for this workshop.

Attend the workshop to:

  • get hands-on with next-generation science courseware
  • learn how to use an adaptive online learning platform
  • join a Teaching Network of like-minded educators and guide the development of upcoming astrobiology-themed courseware

Hope to see you there!
