This contribution summarized the ways in which astronomical teaching was evolving and some of the teaching aids that could be employed. The work of GIREP (Groupe International de Recherche sur l’Enseignment de la Physique) — which holds conferences on the teaching of physics, including astronomy, every two years — was described together with some material reported at the 1986 conference which was devoted to astronomy.
