    Title

    IAF SPACE EDUCATION AND OUTREACH SYMPOSIUM

    Description

    This symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) Space Education and Outreach Committee (SEOC), explores best practices and innovative approaches to space education at all levels. Through its 10 sessions, the symposium showcases activities, methods and techniques for education, outreach to the general public, and workforce development. The symposium keynotes, including the one by the winner of the IAF Frank J. Malina Astronautics Medal, highlight some of the best education and outreach programs from around the world. When submitting abstracts for this symposium, please note that: Abstracts should present a coherent story or idea, and follow a logical sequence. The work should be the original work of the authors. It should share information that is innovative and new or put a new spin on an old subject. The novelty can be in idea, methodology and approach, or in results and recommendations. Papers should have clear education or outreach content. They should also be in the scope of the session they are submitted to. Authors are encouraged to clearly identify target groups, benefits, lessons-learned, recommendations and include measures of critical assessment. Only providing technical details of projects, even if carried out in an educational context, will not usually qualify. Preference is given to papers which present the pedagogical theories behind the work presented. Papers reporting on programmes/activities that have already taken place will be given preference over papers dealing with concepts and plans for the future. Papers covering topics/activities which have been reported at a prior IAC must state this explicitly and detail both the additional information to be presented and the added value that this represents.
