We have a variety of distribution routes to help keep you informed of the latest bioscience learning and teaching news and information. We are also keen to learn what is new with our community – therefore please share with us any news relevant to the bioscience learning and teaching community by contacting the Centre.

Electronic Updates

By joining the Centre network, you will receive email updates approximately every six weeks through our electronic Centre Updates. These electronic updates will keep you informed of upcoming events in bioscience as well as other generic teaching & learning events. Funding opportunities as well as collaborative initiatives are also highlighted.


We provide two filtered (RSS) news categories: Bioscience news which isolates bioscience specific items and General news which isolates non-bioscience specific news. Further information is available about RSS newsfeeds if you wish to display our newsfeeds on your own website.

Policy Updates

The Centre also keeps abreast of the latest policy developments across the UK as they emerge to better inform the bioscience academic.

Other news sources

The Centre’s Bulletin (newsletter) also provides informal articles and Centre news and the Bioscience Education disseminates up to date research outcomes on learning and teaching in the biosciences.


The Centre for Bioscience contributes to consultations by different organisations regarding bioscience learning & teaching issues.

Centre Evaluation

The Centre for Bioscience undertakes evaluation through a variety of methods including surveys in order to better understand the needs and wishes of the bioscience teaching and learning community.


As we strive to best support the bioscience community we solicit and encourage feedback about our services and activities.  If you wish to inform us of an area of activity of relevance to the Centre and/or our wider community, or simply wish to comment on any of the activities, events and resources we provide, please contact us.
