October 2018

1. Regional Pedagogy Workshop for College Science Teachers at Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh in collaboration with DBT/DST, Govt. of India and HRDC, Integral University, Lucknow
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 Uttar Pradesh are eligible to participate.
Dates: October 23-25, 2018;  Location: HRDC, Integral University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh
 

November 2018

1. Induction Programme for College Teachers
This full-time 4-week residential induction programme for newly recruited teachers of undergraduate courses in basic sciences is aimed to orient participants on various aspects of teaching-learning, instructional methodologies, assessment and evaluation techniques, and ICT enabled teaching learning and equip them with knowledge of University rules and regulations, basics of governance and administration which is essential for their teaching career. As per new UGC Regulations, this programme is equivalent with Orientation Programmes of UGC for Career Advancement Scheme (CAS) requirements.
Dates: November 12 to December 8, 2018
 
2. Workshops on Science Administration & Management, and Science Journalism for Women for Women (Level 1), in collaboration with Newton Bhabha Fund, British Council
These workshops will be conducted by a team from Coventry University, UK. The Level 1 workshops will bepreceded by a one-day orientation by Indian experts. It aims to open up new career avenues to retain trained women in science and generate a trained workforce to take on emerging roles in the growing scientific enterprise. Level 1 workshop will have included in-depth discussions and assignments that will give participants a feel for careers in this field.
Sci. Journalism: November 12-15, 2018
Sci. Admin & Mgmt: Level 1: November 26-29, 2018
 

December 2018

1. Vidnyan Jidnyasa Science Exhibition by Students, in collaboration with Agastya Foundation
This science exhibition by selected 80 teams of students from all over Maharashtra will have science exhibits and models made by students of class V-X. The teams will be selected from entries received in reponse to an open call and will get an opportunity to schowcase their models in an open-to-public exhibiton over two days.
Dates: December 14-15, 2018
 
2. DST-INSPIRE Science Internship Camp in colaboration with Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India
Conducted under INSPIRE (Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired REsearch) scheme, the camp aims to attract and retain students in basic sciences and to promote research and innovation. The camp is for bright young students studying in 11th standard and will expose them to the excitement and methods of science, research and innovation, just prior to the time when they make their career decisions. Students will have an excellent opportunity to interact with the best scientific leaders of the country. The camp would provide thought provoking lectures, open discussions, hands-on lab sessions, and group activities to facilitate self-learning through close interactions, and encourage independent thoughts and inquiry-based questions.
Dates: December 24-28, 2018
Application Process: Applications will be accepted through schools and junior colleges only. We request you to kindly recommend five to ten top scoring students based on their class 10th board examination marks. The recommended students should not have attended any previous DST-INSPIRE science camp elsewhere. The school authorities are requested to fill this online registration form
Last date for application: November 18, 2018

2. Level 2 Workshop on Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs) for Undergraduate Science Teachers, in collaboration with British Council and DBT, Govt. of India
This series of workshops is designed to introduce teachers of UG/PG science courses 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. The Level 2 workshop is a train-the-trainer module for selected participants from Level 1, and will be conducted by a team from Sheffield Hallam University, UK. The focus will be on enhancing participants' knowledge of RBPTs  and on making them capable of training others on this teaching method.
Dates: January 17-19, 2019
 
3. Writers' Workshop for generating Reources on Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs) for Undergraduate Science Teachers, in collaboration with British Council and DBT, Govt. of India
This is a part of a series workshops designed to introduce teachers of UG/PG science courses 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. The Writers' Workshop will support participants in producing resource material for using RBPTs in the UG science/mathematics classroom. Several RBPTs resources on various topics from physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics UG curricula will be prepared and circulated widely among the teachers' database .
Dates: January 20-23, 2019
