For Teachers

Workshops and Visits

Over the last decade, we have conducted numerous workshops for science teachers teaching at the primary, middle school and secondary level. Interactions with pre-service and in-service teachers has been a regular feature of the D&T group’s activities. Our goals for these workshops involves – developing an understanding of nature of science, understanding the dynamics of gender and other socio cultural issues in education and specifically science education, introducing design and technology projects in current science curriculum, project based learning and environment education. Currently we are offering workshops on following themes: Nature of science, Gender and science, Project based  learning, Design and technology activities for school, Science, technology and society, Action research, Gender issues in education, Environment education etc.
