COESME Upcoming Activities 

Upcoming Activities of the Centre of Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education (CoESME)
 

July 2018

1. Hands-on Physics Workshop for KV Teachers, in collaboration with Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT)
There will be two workshops, each of 3 days, for selected Physics Post-Graduate Teachers of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan. They will focus on deeper understanding of the principles of physics and make participants feel the excitement of physics. Short but interesting low cost experiments, open house, linking of research activities  at IISER to what is taught in schools, will be some of the important aspects of the workshops. 
Dates: Batch I: July 4-6, 2018;  Batch II: July 9-11, 2018
 
2. Regional Pedagogy Workshop for College Science Teachers at Nainital, Uttarakhand in collaboration with DBT/DST, Govt. of India and Kumaun University, Nainital
This is a part of a series of workshops, designed to introduce teachers to Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs), that focus on process of science rather than information, and help students develop critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. The workshops also give teachers a platform to network with peers and to get information on funding opportunities. The participants trained in previous national-level workshops by a team of experts from UK will be trainers in this workshop. Teachers from all science disciplines, teaching UG or PG level courses in and around Uttarakhand are eligible to participate.
Dates: July 31 - August 2, 2018;  LocationKumaun University, Nainital, Uttarakhand

1. Pedagogy Workshops for School Mathematics Teachers
Developing mathematical thinking through problem solving and technology has become an important aspect of mathematics education today. Toward this, CoESME, IISER Pune has organised two workshops, each of two days, for school mathematics teachers. The first workshop will be for Middle School Teachers and will include problem solving, algebraic thinking, fractal geometry, visual thinking, tiling symmetry, dynamic geometry software. The second one will be aimed towards Secondary and Senior Secondary School Teachers and the sessions will be on topics like geometrical inquiry through DGS, playing games, calculus, proof without words, modelling and applications, analysing the mathematics classroom. Dr. Jonaki Ghosh, a senior mathematics educator from Delhi, will conduct the workshops. 
Dates: Workshop I: August 7-8, 2018, Workshop II: August 9-10, 2018
 

September 2018

1. Level 1 Pedagogy Workshops for College Science Teachers at Kolkata, West Bengal and Jaipur, Rajasthan in collaboration with DBT (Govt. of India) and British Council
This is a part of a series of workshops, designed to introduce teachers to Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs), that focus on process of science rather than information, and help students develop analytical and critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities. During the 3-day workshops, participants prepare RBPTs in their own subject, which are reviewed by their peers and the experts. The workshops also give teachers a platform to network with peers and to get information on funding opportunities. 
Both workshops will have the same content and will be conducted by a team from Sheffield Hallam University, UK along with experts from India. Teachers from all basic science disciplines, teaching UG or PG level courses from all over India are eligible to apply. There are no registration fees and travel alowance will be paid to selected particpants.
I. Dates: September 23-26, 2018;  LocationKolkata, West Bengal
II. Dates: September 28 - October 1, 2018;  LocationJaipur, Rajasthan
