Commission C1 WG Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion


This working group is the old Astronomy & Inclusion WG. The change in the ID is product of the brainstorm encounter during the last session of the FM 20, organized by the OAD.

The WG is about research and development of different strategies, tools, resources to provide people with special educational needs or people with visual, hearing and / or motor disabilities, a learning and participative space, accessible, interesting and educational, without neglecting the basics of scientific dissemination, ensuring interaction in a playful context. The WG realizes its mission through an interdisciplinary approach (astronomers, educators and disability specialists) in developing new teaching and learning strategies. It generates resources and tools of high-impact hierarchy in these minority populations which are usually away from astronomy, and creates a resource base of didactic approaches, models and tools for all the audiences.. The group worked very well and the members are in contact permanently.
