eC15: Virtual Field Trips & Online Teaching (29 May 2020)

Join us for our second try at e-Conference #15 — we’re devoting the first half of the session to virtual field trips and online teaching, and how we can help meet the new demands on planetarium educators. We have a full complement of recurring segments, and we’ll spend some time getting more feedback on future scheduling for the e-conferences. With more planetarians returning to their facilities, we want to continue to provide professional development opportunities that reach as many people as possible.
