“Teachers Training Program” - Workshop for High School Teachers

Science has become an important and indispensable part of our daily lives. Science has made each and every aspect of our daily living easier, faster and safer. Science teaches us to ask the most fundamental questions “what, how and why” of nature and is the reason for the ever increasing understanding that people have about the world around them. It is therefore important to educate the teachers about the recent developments in science and technology. Indian Institute of Technology Bhilai (IIT Bhilai), a premier educational Institute in the country, actively engaged in quality research and teaching believes in creating such awareness.

Teachers Training Program has been organized by IIT Bhilai in collaboration with State Council Education and Research Training Chhattisgarh and supported by Royal Society of Chemistry. Around 45 teachers are selected from different parts of Chhattisgarh to attend the program which is being held during May 08 - 09, 2018 at IIT Bhilai, GEC Campus, Raipur, 492015, Chhattisgarh.

The aim of the Teacher Training Program is to give teachers contemporary tools for delivering effective and engaging chemistry lessons. Teachers are introduced to proven active learning techniques that can be applied easily in a chemistry context, helping students develop their knowledge and enthusiasm for chemistry. They will practice using these techniques in their lessons plans. Teachers also explore some key science topics in depth, learning about the misconceptions students may hold and how they can be tackled in the classroom. Finally, teachers get the opportunity to try some practical chemistry experiments which can be adapted to be used in any settings, including those with no traditional laboratory facilities. The program has been designed to create harmony between learning and applying scientific knowledge towards the development of the society with a mission to foster a new generation of teachers who are inspired to improve the world with Science.

We hope to provide all the participants with the best possible scientific experience.
