The College of Science and Technology (CST) is the first institute in the country to offer undergraduate degree programmes in engineering which were introduced in 2001 by Royal Command. It is responsible to oversee the tertiary education system in the Kingdom of Bhutan in the field of science and technology. The college is located at Rinchending in Phuentsholing.
TROP-ICSU: Faculty Development Workshop
Climate Change is one of the most significant issues of our times and a key impeding factor affecting the pace of sustainable and equitable development of every country. Educating forthcoming generations about the causes and effects of global climate change is imperative as implementing solutions depends on their scientific, technical, and leadership abilities. As the climate change problem is complex and requires multi-disciplinary approaches to the solutions, existing cross-disciplinary collaborations between geo-scientists, biologists, and ecologists must be broadened to assimilate input from the human and behavioral sciences, from law and politics, and even media and the creative arts. In this context, there is an urgent need to develop new education modules and pedagogical methods to inculcate environmental understanding in today’s students, in such a way that, every future citizen would be better equipped to identify appropriate solutions to mitigate climate change and reverse its impacts.
In this context, a climate change education project, TROP-ICSU (https://tropicsu.org), has been initiated as a global project with generous support by the International Science Council. It aims to improve awareness of climate change and the science behind it among students by developing teaching aids for teachers at the high school (secondary school) and undergraduate (Bachelor’s degree) levels. Our educational resources, with detailed step-by-step descriptions to use them in regular lectures (see: https://tropicsu.org/resources/lesson-plans/), are designed in such a way that in addition to bringing climate-related examples and case studies to the core curriculum, they also enhance conceptual understanding of the topics in basic Sciences, mathematics, social science and other disciplines. The latter would incentivize teachers to use our resources.
Registration is free, which includes participation in the workshop, refreshment and working lunch along with DSA of Nu.1000/- per day for two days will be paid to the participants.
Please note that NO Travel Allowance (TA) will be paid for participation in the workshop.
