 Active learning is gaining popularity in western countries. Interview with Carl Weiman, Nobel Laurate in Physics.

Teaching will be interactive in nature, where students will be encouraged to think, ask questions, critically examine the concepts and apply.Unlike in traditional lectures, in this programme classes will not be in the conventional chalk and talk. Students will be asked questions and will be encouraged to ask questions, in the lectures. They will be encouraged to discuss the solutions among themselves in the tutorials with the teacher playing more the role of a facilitator.

The experimental physics course will be structured so as to make students think of how to propose and design an experiment, and to identify errors in obtaining and interpreting the data. They will not be given a pre-designed experiment with instructions.

Though the content of the course is by and large traditional, the goal will be to train them to think, as a physicist.

To bring to focus the novelty in teaching methodology, a set of suggested guidelines for teachers has been prepared for both theory and experimental courses. which will be shared with the resource persons. We believe that this teaching methodology, in the theory courses and especially in the experimental course, will have a larger impact on the philosophy and training in physics education beyond PTTS.

Other Programs

There was an online workshop on"ACTIVE LEARNING FOR PHYSICS TEACHERS" between March-4,2021 to March-7, 2021 with a welcome message by Prof Carl Weiman (Nobel Prize winner) and the resource persons:

Dr. Georg Rieger, Dept. of Physics and Former Dept. Director of the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative, University of British Columbia

Dr. Eric Burkholder, Dept. of Physics, Stanford University.

About 35 teachers participated in the workshop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There was a 2 day discussion meeting on "Experimental Program of PTTS" at IISER ,Pune on Nov-4& 5 2019.

There 23 particpants across the country and had a productive discussion on suggestions for  potential experiments for future program.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Mini-PTTS was organised  at KBN College from Dec-16 to Dec -20,2019 for 50 students of BSc II year students  from AP. They were given a short course on Mechanics, Oscillations and one day hands-on experimental session.
