Centre for Bioscience, The Higher Education Academy


Networks and Links

We have produced pages that are targeted at people with different interests (e.g. new lecturers and staff and educational developers) so the information you want is collected together and easy to find.

We recognise that sometimes the most valuable source of advice and guidance is not the Centre but other lecturers, in other departments, who have common interests and who are facing similar challenges. To help you make contact with such colleagues, we support and continue to develop a range of national networks and special interest groups; creating opportunities for communication, and tailored support.

….I value the discussion with other academics…..good to share ideas and experience

We work closely with other organisations which are interested in learning and teaching both generally and in the biosciences and we value the work they do. You may find it useful to look at their websites to gain further information on certain topics.
