Call for applications

The ENS-IISER cooperation network (11 institutions), with the support of the French Embassy in India, is hosting its first ever franco-indian virtual workshop on the 10th & 11th of May 2021.

The theme of this year workshop coincides with what the academic world has been confronted with in the last year: ”pedagogy in a pandemic world”.

The Workshop will take place over 2 days, with two different formats. 

The first will focus on formal short talks (15-20 minutes) with panel discussion on a specific disciplinary level. The second will be centered more on informal discussion and the exchange of best practices on an interdisciplinary level.  

Example of topics (non-exhaustive list)

  • Flipped Classrooms: from lecture halls to virtual labs
  • Adaptive methods for Teaching quantum mechanics online
  • Adapting institutions to massive use of online teaching tools
  • Teaching science outside the classroom
  • Teaching bioinformatics online
  • The connection between math, pedagogy and the natural world around us
  • Physics pedagogy and research
  • When chemistry met biology - pedagogy and research at the interface
  • Going back to chalk and blackboard to teach neuroscience 

Participation to the workshop will be a very good opportunity to connect with colleagues of the network.

Deadlines for submission

  • If you wish to propose a short talk, the deadline for submission is April 15th.
  • If you wish to participate in a panel or informal discussion or just listen in, send an email before April 15th.

ENS-IISER cooperation in a Nutshell

The partnership has been developing since 2016 when the first delegates from the 4 ENS in France carried out an exploratory visit of the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research.

Strong academic and scientific links were immediately identified, as were common core values and mindset.
5 years later, in spite of the global pandemic, the network is proud to publish successful results especially regarding the ENS/IISER Internship Program, several very satisfying bilateral visits to reinforce scientific collaboration and diplomatic relations and now the organisation of the first ever Virtual Workshop.

The cooperation has also attracted the attention of the French Embassy in India and now benefits from important support from the French Ambassador to India, Mr Emmanuel Lenain.
