The Chemistry cell at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (TIFR) conducts various activities related to teaching and learning of chemistry at higher secondary and tertiary level. Most of these activities are conducted as part of Chemistry Olympiad and the National Initiative on Undergraduate Science (NIUS) program in chemistry.
We also conduct activities for teachers. Some of the key domains that are integral part of Teachers’ programmes conducted by us are:
a) designing problems in theoretical areas with emphasis on context and conceptual understanding,
b) enhancing learning in chemistry laboratories through designing and developing meaningful experimental problems, and
The members of the cell are involved in generating instructional resources useful for teachers and students on continual basis.
