Evolving molecular bioscience education is a two-day training event held on 24-25 March 2021 in Glasgow, UK. This workshop is aimed at anyone teaching in higher education in the molecular biosciences, from early career lecturers to established professors. The course aims to share best practice and novel ideas with higher educators, to equip students with the skills they need to succeed in their careers.

The event will comprise lectures, group discussions, and poster presentations from attendees. ‘Evolving molecular bioscience education’ is supported by the Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS).

Topics to be covered include:

  • Developing skills within a bioscience curriculum
  • Students as co-producers
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Education research across Europe
  • Teaching approaches

Attending this event will help colleagues working towards various levels of Fellowship of the HEA. Being a delegate and participating in the event is evidence of the A5 and V3 dimensions of the UKPSF. In addition, there will be many ideas shared that, if implemented by delegates, could contribute to a number of the other dimensions.

Members of FEBS Constituent Societies are eligible to register at the reduced price (£225 Member, £185 Early Career Member, £135 Student and Emeritus Members). Earlybird discounts available until 25 January 2021.

Venue: The Studio, Glasgow, UK.
