Teacher's Enrichment Workshop
A week-long workshop for mathematics teachers of Engineering colleges
Sponsored by the National Centre for Mathematics (NCM)
Co-sponsored and hosted by The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc)
under its "Enriching Collegiate Education" series of workshops

Dates: Monday to Saturday, 26th Nov to 1st Dec 2018
Venue: Chandrasekhar Hall, IMSc, Taramani, Chennai

For more information see the program poster

The broad goal of IMSc's Enriching Collegiate Education series of workshops is to bring research mathematicians and college teachers together in an effort to enrich mathematics education in colleges. It is noteworthy in this context that IMSc is primarily a research institute. This workshop is part of a Teacher's Enrichment Workshop, a series sponsored by the NCM

This week-long workshop is aimed at mathematics teachers in Engineering colleges, to enable them to revisit and update content and/or knowledge. The lectures will cover a few specific topics (see below). The workshop also includes discussion sessions where teachers can get doubts cleared and work out exercises (both routine and advanced).

A detailed schedule is now available.

Other information

Lunch (and tea, coffee, snacks) will be provided on all days of the workshop to all selected participants free of cost. Certificates of participation will be issued.

This workshop is intended primarily for teachers from local colleges.

Travel and accommodation arrangements are left entirely to the participants. IMSc is unable to provide any assistance towards travel or accomodation.

Teachers in areas outside Chennai interested in the TEW series of workshops are advised to look for a workshop closer to them: TEW workshops 2018.

Teachers not in Engineering colleges (e.g., Arts & Science colleges) may apply but preference in selection will be given to teachers from Engineering colleges.
