Final year research projects: Challenges and opportunities (Teaching Symposium)

Teaching Symposium Teaching Symposium

Organised by Judy Harris, University of Bristol, UK

Tuesday 12 July 2011
LT7 (Restaurant, University Club)

The Teaching Symposium will generate discussion around the increasingly difficult issue of providing all final year honours students with 'wet' lab experience - made problematic because of increased student numbers, the restrictions (and expense) of using animals and/or animal tissues and the expense (and often fragility) of lab equipment and consumables.

Speakers will share their experience of working in institutions in the UK and US.

The line up includes a presentation from Neil Morris, winner of the 2010 Otto Hutter Physiology Teaching Prize.

Teaching Workshop – 13.15–14.15
LT7 (Restaurant, University Club)

The teaching symposium will be complemented by an informal teaching workshop. The focus for the workshop will be the recommendations in the Academy of Medical Sciences report "Redressing the balance: the status and valuation of teaching in academic careers in the biomedical sciences", which is available here.

More details to follow.
