Rajasthan's Ajmer to host three-day National Seminar on Science Education
A three-day National Seminar on Science Education (NSSE-2017) is going to be organised by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) at Regional Institute of Education (RIE), Ajmer, from November 21 to 23.

"Good science education is true to the child, true to life and true to science. Science is the synergy of content, process and development of attitude. Science and Technology plays a vital role in the progress of a nation. Scientific processes are used for systematic analysis of observations and reaching at objective conclusions. Also one of the aims of science education is to inculcate scientific temper. There is always a need to plan and work for science for all to develop a scientific and emerging society," states the concept note of the seminar.

According to the NCERT, the seminar aims to provide a platform to all stakeholders working in the field of science education to share their experiences, researches, innovative practices and their impact in improving the quality of school education. This would help in providing directions to the curricular and pedagogic reforms for developing the emerging Indian society, inform the organizers.

The twin objectives of the seminar are: to provide a forum to the science education researchers, teachers and teacher educators to share their research work, innovative practices and emerging trends in science education and its quality; and, to document the best practices and researches in the field of school science education and to disseminate the same with the stakeholders.

Around 20 subthemes have been proposed for researchers and practitioners to organize their papers and submit those.  Some of the interesting  subthemes are : Constructivist approaches in Facilitating Learning of Science; Science Education beyond Constructivism; Professional Development of Science Teachers, Science Education for Inclusive Classroom, and Ancient Indian Scientific Knowledge and its Relevance in Modern Time.
