STEM Teacher Training Workshop to develop Research-Based Pedagogical Tools

About the Programme

The British Council, in collaboration with Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune, are organising STEM Teacher Training Workshops to develop  Research-Based Pedagogical Tools (RBPT) for Undergraduate Science Teachers.

These workshops will introduce participants to Research-Based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs) that focus on the process of science rather than information-transfer. It will be a hands-on workshop with participants preparing their own teaching tools and reviewing those of others. Teachers will also get an opportunity to share their own teaching innovations with peers and experts.

This is an opportunity for professional development for teachers and the chance to network with counterparts from various colleges and education experts from India and abroad, and to get information on funding opportunities.

The workshops will be delivered by a team from Sheffield Hallam University, UK and Indian experts on education and policy.
