Equity 'and' Excellence... and the way forward


Dr. Asmita Redij, Visiting Fellow, HBCSE


At HBCSE, I worked on three broad areas, upholding the core values the institute stands for, equity and excellence. Anandi Newsletter, a monthly science communication designed to reach the last person first, has emerged as a direct channel connecting an institute for education research like HBCSE with the students. The key to the success of Anandi was its collaborative design. Culturally Responsive Science Teaching (CReST) is for classrooms that cater to students from distinct cultural backgrounds than the mainstream. This involved understanding the classroom challenges and their culture. Then forming a cohort of teachers, researchers, and educators to work towards making classroom discourse relevant. Astronomy education research, Though a specialized subject, some day-to-day observations in Astronomy can be explained from the first principles of the science topics covered at the school level. My work ranged from reviewing the astronomy content in textbooks to exploring alternate means, like resources, and teaching methods, to bring out the true potential of the subject. To help students appreciate the nature and process of science. In this talk, I will give an overview of these projects from their conceptualization to implementation, and share some findings and challenges involved.
