CESME at HBCSE has been set up under the Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching under the ambit of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India.
It is aimed at strengthening science and mathematics education in India by engaging with teachers and teacher educators at school and undergraduate levels. a he BESTM teacher fellow programme is an academic leadership programme in Science, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) education. Its goal is to empower teachers and teacher educators to take up leadership roles in the profession in a variety of roles – design of resources, education research, policy and planning.
As a part of the CESME at HBCSE, Teacher fellowships have been initiated
The main focus of the programme is to expose teachers to the best contemporary ideas and scholarship in the field of STEM education. Teacher fellows will undertake action research projects and develop the capacity to implement evidence based innovations in teaching and learning.
The chemistry Group at HBCSE also conducts camp under the umbrella of chemistry Olympiad programmes
These camps are conducted as part of Indian Chemistry Olympiad Program (INChO) is to acquaint motivated chemistry teachers with the philosophy of Chemistry Olympiad and help them to gather first hand enriching experiences about designing such problems.
Are conducted for chemistry teachers teaching at higher secondary level (that is, class X to XII).
The primary aim of the programme is to acquaint chemistry teachers with Indian and International Chemistry Olympiad programme through pedagogical discussions about the problems and the concepts involved.
