Location all days: Lecture Theatre South (Building 30), LT3

Wednesday afternoon will be focused on teaching ideas that our colleagues find do or do not work in teaching stellar structure and stellar evolution. Participants are encouraged to bring along ideas and questions about teaching astronomy, in particular stellar astrophysics. Thursday and Friday will be for science talks.
