Abstract: 
Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) and Ali Institute of Education (AIE) have initiated a joint Teacher Training Program, فکر انگیز سائنسی تعلیم Thought-provoking Science Education. In this program, we will focus on teaching of practical physics through thought-provoking, innovative and exciting experiments. The program comprises of three independent interactive workshops, the second of which will take place on 22nd to 24th November, 2018 at the Ali Institute of Education, Ferozepur Road, Lahore.
 
The purpose of this workshop is to enable physics teachers to learn about the culture of modern physics experimentation preparing them to design and deliver modern, exciting and insightful physics experiments to their students. By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to get exposure to
 
  1. building experimental hardwarefrom low-cost items;
  2. use modern gadgets and techniques such as video tracking and physics using the smartphone;
  3. plotting and interpretation of data, and
  4. connecting the laboratory to the classroom.
 
The hand-picked experiments to be offered in this workshop are designed based on topics selected from the syllabi of Grades 9 to 12 (matric to intermediate) and O levels. These four-five experiments will not be a replica of experiments traditionally performed by students in our laboratories, rather they are thought-inspiring experiments designed to highlight how physics practicals, in our opinion, should be conducted in an enabling, skills-oriented and contemporary fashion. All experiments will be low-cost and will become fodder for ideas for teachers who could recreate their own experiments to amplify physics topics in their textbooks.
 
Coverage areas:The coverage of these experiments will be from mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, basic electronics, waves and vibrations.
 
Laboratory skills:measurement, uncertainties, graphing, data processing, using the camera and the smartphone for physics experiments, building hardware, connecting theory with experiment, interpreting experimental results.
 
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the workshop. If you teach physics, especially practical physics, conduct laboratory training for your students, want to set up new labs, are motivated about physics education and would like to usher in radical reforms to how physics is taught in your school, or are a headmaster or headmistress and would like to nominate some talented individual from your school or college, please fill out the registration form.
 
Registration is required to participate in the workshop. Once the registration form is filled, the participants will be selected and shortlisted on basis of their willingness to learn, background and inclination towards practical aspects of teaching. Further details are provided below:

Abstract: 

The first ever Software Carpentry workshop will be organized by IDRACK and the  Khwarizmi Science Society in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence in Solid State Physics, University of Punjab, Lahore.

IDRACK is a non-profit organization and is currently introducing software carpentry in Pakistan. The niche in which IDRACK works is scientific communication and awareness  with a special emphasis on women in STEM. Currently, it is working in the area of scientific programming and introducing the research community in Pakistan to this practice to bring the quality of research at par with the  developed world.

Objectives:

This workshop is being organised with two objectives in mind:

  1. To introduce Software Carpentry in Pakistan and encourage people to become instructors and join a global community.

  2. To expose people with just enough know-how to integrate computational work with their current research work.

The workshop  will be led by Ashar Malik from IDRACK who is also affiliated with Software Carpentry Community. He will be training the researchers so that they can continue this chain of research training in other insitutions/cities as well. Some indication regarding the content to be delivered on these two days (27th and 28th) can be obtained from the schedule below.
