The Kent Library fall Athenaeum Series presents “Science Education in India: A call for Change.” This presentation is given by Dr. Peggy Hill of the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics. The topic of science education in India is an outcome of what Dr. Hill learned as a result of her recent trip to Kerala, India where the educational system is based on the British exam-driven curriculum. At this Athenaeum event, Dr. Hill will discuss issues raised and lessons learned as a result of a two-week trip to Kerala where she met with high school science teachers and presented workshops on how to incorporate various Active Learning Techniques in the physics classroom. The presentation is free, open to all, and refreshments will be provided. For more information, visithttp://library.semo.edu/info/athenaeum2009.shtml .
