This is the second of the workshop in this series, happening shortly after similar such workshop at IISER Mohali.
Teaching Learning Centre (TLC), Tezpur University, jointly with Indian Institute of Science Education and Research
(IISER), Pune and the British Council, is organizing a three-day pedagogy workshop for undergraduate science teachers
from January 28-30, 2017 at Tezpur University.
Target Group: The workshop is meant for teachers of all disciplines such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology and
earth sciences. It will introduce participants to research-based pedagogical tools that focus on the process of science rather
than facts. It will be a hands-on workshop with participants preparing their own teaching tools in groups and reviewing
those of others. The teachers will also get an opportunity to share their own teaching innovations with their peers and
experts in the field.
Selected participants will also get to participate in a Level 2 workshop later, that
will focus on making them trainers for conducting similar trainings at local level.
Resource persons: The workshop will be conducted by a team of trainers from the Sheffield Hallam University, UK and
Indian experts from the area of education and policy.
Eligibility Criteria: Teachers teaching in government or government-aided colleges with either a master’s degree with 10
years of teaching experience or a PhD degree with 5 years of teaching experience are eligible to apply. Interested
teachers are requested to apply online at the link given bellow. A short ‘Statement of Purpose’ about why they would like to
participate in this workshop and whether/how they would like to be involved in spreading this pedagogical innovation
among their peers later, must be submitted with the online application. The organisers will select 150 teachers from the
applications received. Selected candidates will have to submit scanned copies of supporting documents (Recommendation
from the Principal/Head of Institute/Proof of PhD Degree) once they are selected. The college is also expected to support
the participants in this activity.
