from High school to Universityknow more
The Indian Institute of Science recognised the need for science and mathematics teachers training in the early years of 1980. A group of dedicated professors began training local teachers, which was eventually expanded to district centres in conjunction with the Department of State Education Research and Training, Karnataka, till 2009. During centennial celebration, IISc aquired 1500 acres of land in Challakere for its second campus and idea of having permanent facility for training teachers was concieved. In 2010, Government of Karnataka leased sheep breeding facility to IISc to start teachers training program. Professor M S Hegde with his vision of training, started first high school teachers training program on 26 February 2011. Then it has expanded to include UG and PG college teachers, under the Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching. With the success of these programs, in 2016, IISc in collaboration with
