I would be interested in discussing with and learning from others about the following topics:

. How is the astronomy education connected or disconnected from astronomy research - i.e. are students exposed to and trained with the latest methods and technologies used in today's astronomical research?

. Is VO a main component of astronomy education today? (I believe the answer varies from region to region) .

. What are good examples of VO curriculum?

. What are the good practice of developing VO-based curriculum?

. Problem-Based Learning is a well acknowledged method of teaching interdisciplinary computing. Is PBL a method for VO-based teaching & Learning?
