Covid-directed evolution of molecular bioscience teaching: let’s analyse the mutations together
The COVID-19 pandemic has 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 has edited our teaching DNA and engineered in some new practices over the past 12 months.
We probably all experienced some nonsense mutations which didn’t translate as we hoped but, as the year has progressed, some stable enhancements have emerged. At this webinar, Dr Jo Rushworth, recipient of the Biochemical Society’s 2020 Teaching Excellence Award, will share 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 ask you to share your ideas and good practice. Which aspects of remote teaching are here to stay and what is the future of molecular bioscience education? As a bioscience teaching and learning community, what kind of support will staff and students want, expect and need to prepare for a newer normal? Let’s discuss and share our ideas for designing tomorrow’s excellence in blended bioscience pedagogy.
This webinar is held ahead of the Society’s ‘Evolving molecular bioscience education’ online training course which is free to attend for members of the Biochemical Society and FEBS constituent societies. Join the discussion before and during the webinar here.
