The Centre for Bioscience has supported a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Network Groups over the years. These aimed to encourage discussion and exchange of information surrounding various learning and teaching issues from a bioscience perspective. Group members had the opportunity to exchange experiences, identify and develop good practices that will be both themselves and the wider bioscience community.
Network Groups are united by a common interest in a theme or topic. Historically, within the group, members communicated via a common e-mail list. These lists had been inactive for some time and were archived in July 2011. Resources compiled by the groups contain to be available via the Centre's website and can be accessed via the relevant links below.
