Institute: Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune
Event: Summer Workshop in Science Education (SWiSE)
Duration: 10 days (June 25 to July 5, 2012)
Aims at: It aims to identify and nurture potential leaders of an inquiry-oriented integrative approach to science education from among high school and college teachers, resource persons in educational organizations, and students pursuing a Master’s or PhD in science, and others with a commitment to science education.
The face-to-face program will be preceded and followed by extensive web discussion, and will focus on the design of curricula, learning materials, learning tasks, assessment tasks, and pedagogical strategies.
Eligibility: This workshop is meant for future science-educator-educationist-thinkers who would be excited by a vision of science education that goes beyond these goals, to aim at inspiring in learners a scientific temper, scientific inquiry, and critical thinking — a way of thinking and being that can then influence domains outside of science in their personal and professional lives. It is based on the assumption that such transformation in science education is both desirable and feasible.
