The chemistry group is actively involved in Teacher professional development for chemistry teachers at higher secondary and undergraduate level. We conduct resource generation camps, exposure camps and other teacher camps at or outside HBCSE. Some of the keys areas covered in such camps are- i) designing context and concept based problems and understanding their pedagogical significance, ii) reflecting on laboratory experiments from learning and assessment perspectives, iii) students’ conceptual pitfalls in chemistry and iv) introduction to research informed innovative teaching-learning practices.
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.
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.
