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

July 2019

1. Workshop on Experimental Physics for undergraduate Physics Teachers
Contemporary UG teaching must involve instrument building, experimental work with technically ingenious but straightforward solutions, data analysis at a non-trivial level, theories of scaling and modeling. It is important that students develop independent thinking, critical judgment and other skills to effectively communicate with the teachers or peers. Through this workshop, UG teachers will be introduced to some landmark experiments from different topics in Physics. Many od these experiments have been developed in-house with high level of student participation. Participants will carry out experiments by themselves, record data and present results. They will have hands-on exposure to the construction of apparatus. It is envisaged that the participants will be able reproduce these experiments in their respective colleges in due course.
Date: July, 8-10, 2019  More information
 
2. Regional Pedagogy Workshop for College Science Teachers at Sri Pratap College, Srinagar, Kashmir in collaboration with DBT/DST, Govt. of India and Sri Pratap College, Srinagar, Kashmir.
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 Kashmir are eligible to participate.
Dates: July 16-18, 2019; Location: Sri Pratap College, Srinagar, Kashmir.
 
3. Workshop on Machine Learning for Biology Applications
Many questions in science are now being addressed using Machine Learning tools. This Workshop is aimed primarily at college teachers who would like to get a rapid introduction to this field. It will particularly focus on applications in biology and medicine, areas that are ripe for analysis of 'big datasets'. Participants will be introduced to relevant concepts from scratch, but basic familiarity with statistics is expected and a working knowledge of R is highly desirable. Topics covered will include support vector machines, classification and regression trees, decision trees, neural networks and more.
Dates: July 24-26, 2019   More Information
