With monthly online seminars in English (usually on Wednesday at 17.30 CET), this series aims to create a forum and a community to help improve the quality of undergraduate education in the life sciences. Its target audience includes program directors and coordinators, teachers, student counselors, discipline-specific educational scientists, and others. Although it grew out of the idea for a 1st Swiss Symposium, there is not much Swissness to it, and it is therefore definitely also open to any interested persons from anywhere else.

Program: The detailed program is listed here for the next few months, to be continued after the summer break (stay tuned for updates and extensions).

  • March 17 (exceptionally at 17.00): Erin Dolan (University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, USA); Undergraduate research at scale: What if the treatment is a CURE?
  • April 14 (17.30): Kostas Kampourakis (University of Geneva, CH); Going beyond content knowledge: Addressing students’ preconceptions to achieve conceptual understanding in undergraduate biology
  • May 12 (17.30): Katja Köhler and Ernst Hafen (ETH Zürich, CH); Teaching as teamwork - The Center for Active Learning at the ETH Department of Biology
  • June 9 (17.30): Pierre Cosson (University of Geneva, CH); Construction of a new bachelor curriculum with integration of multiple soft skills

OrganizersDidier Picard (University of Geneva) and François Lombard (University of Geneva), under the auspices of Life Sciences Switzerland.
