Centre for Bioscience Learning Guide Series

Teaching Bioscience - Enhancing Learning

These web pages provide supporting and additional material to the hardcopy versions of the Teaching Bioscience - Enhancing Learning series.

The series is intended to be an accessible introduction to good learning and teaching practice within the context of competing research and institutional pressures. The aim of each publication is to provide a persuasive overview of the pedagogic reasons for adopting a particular practice and support these reasons with sufficient practical guidance and information to turn ideas into reality. The guides combine a mix of theory with bioscience examples and case studies.

The guides are written to be useful to academics in their first year of lecturing, particularly those who are studying for Post Graduate Certificates in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, as well as to those with many years of teaching experience.
