Covid-directed evolution of molecular bioscience teaching: let’s analyse the mutations together

Video, May 13 2021

Biochemistry Focus Webinar Series

60 minutes

At this webinar, Dr Jo Rushworth, recipient of the Biochemical Society's 2020 Teaching Excellence Award, shared some of her own remote teaching experiences around flipped remote learning, remote lab simulations, co-creation, inclusion and transitions, game-based learning, and lecturer-as-learner, as well as asked the audience to share their ideas and good practice.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the evolution of molecular bioscience teaching in HE, causing rapid mutations to teaching and learning approaches, assessment and feedback design and student support. The rapid transition to remote and blended models of theoretical and practical learning edited our teaching DNA and engineered in some new practices. Dr Jo Rushworth from De Montfort University, UK discusses the future of molecular bioscience education and explores which aspects of remote teaching are here to stay.

This webinar was chaired by Dr Alex Conner from the University of Birmingham, and member of the Biochemical Society's Education, Training, and Public Engagement Committee.
