    It is one of the online courses which I love most. This gives me real essense of how to teach science and what does it actually means by teaching it. It is helping me a lot in using the skills taught here in my classroom. I am myself Assistant Professor of Botany in the department of higher education of Jammu and Kashmir and this course has shown me a new way of teaching sciences in the classroom. Wish more such induction courses for teachers be made available on Sawayam...

    Course namely Pedagogy of Science was very well planned and well executed course. It acted as an active platform for remote learners. All concepts were made clear with the help of online textual content supplemented with videos. Introducing discussion forum and quiz was instrumental in objective assessment. Overall course was fruitful.
