Workshop on Research Based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs) for Teachers of Undergraduate Science Courses

Date: September 7 to September 9, 2017
Venue: SRM University, Ramapuram Campus, Chennai

Regional Pedagogy Workshop for College Science Teachers at Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in collaboration with DBT/DST, Govt. of India and SRM University, Ramapuram, Chennai. This is a part of a series of workshops, designed to introduce teachers to Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs), that focus on the 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 the UK will be trainers in this workshop. Teachers from all science disciplines, teaching UG or PG level courses in non-metropolitan locations in Tamil Nadu are eligible to participate.
