Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Greetings. We are pleased to announce a pedagogic workshop on Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology from 6th to 10th November 2023, to be organized by the Department of Physics under the aegis of IQAC, St. Stephen's College, University of Delhi, in collaboration with the Astronomy Centre for Educators, Inter- University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune. The workshop will be held at St. Stephen's College, Delhi.
College and university teachers, postdocs and Ph.D. students interested in learning pedagogic approaches of astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels are encouraged to apply. Groups of participants will be assigned to mentors to study an area in which they will also be required to make a presentation. The long-term goal is to build up a support community to improve pedagogic processes in our institutions of higher education. This is the first one in a series of such workshops being planned across the country.
Please apply via the Registration form in the link https://astrostephens2023.wixsite.com/educator which also has other related information.
The last date for registration is 14th October 2023.
For this workshop preference will be given to faculty members from Delhi and neighbouring regions. Very limited accommodation preferably for out-station participants will be available.
Could we request you to spread the word to those who may be interested? A copy of the poster in both pdf and jpg formats is attached. The link in the pdf file is clickable.
