The workshop is meant for teachers of all science disciplines such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, life sciences and earth science. 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.
Teachers teaching in government or government-aided college with either a masters 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 send in their applications by December 31, 2016, including 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.
Organised jointly by Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali, IISER Pune and the British Council of India.
