From sharing knowledge and resources to developing extracurricular projects together, networking and collaboration can be a boon to educators and their students, in many ways. Still, we see that a large proportion of educators are not very comfortable in building connections or investing their time and energy in networking. How can more educators be encouraged to take this path? What are the roadblocks that hinder them from networking? How can these be overcome? Join us for an interactive discussion around these questions on June 24, 2021, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. IST.
We will be joined by distinguished panellists, including Shakila Shamsu, former Officer in Special Duty (National Education Policy), Dept. of Higher Education, Ministry of Education; L. S. Shashidhara, Dean of Research and a Distinguished Professor at Ashoka University, Sonipat; and Mayuri Rege, DST-Inspire Faculty, Ruia College, Mumbai. The session will be moderated by Smita Jain, Executive Director, IndiaBioscience and Vijeta Raghuram, Program Manager-Education, IndiaBioscience.
This session is suitable for undergraduate educators in any field of science in India.
