Here at Learning Science we’ve been innovating for over ten years, and we’re not planning on stopping now. There are some very exciting developments underway at LearnSciHQ, and we’d like to share a few with you here: a growing bioscience library, Smart Worksheets now enriched with interactive graphs, plus the first steps of a new chemistry series.
This semester, the University of Glasgow’s School of Chemistry have transformed two teaching lab units with learning technology.
In doing so, they have enhanced student confidence in the lab, made more efficient use of lab time and improved the quality, consistency and timeliness of feedback whilst reducing the staff marking burden.
Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for July 2017.
This month we learned about potential new changes to TEF and the pay-packets of vice-chancellors, and the finalists of the Global Higher Education Excellence Awards.
We cover a study on the thinking processes of chemistry students, and a report on how students feel before uni vs during or after. There is news, although it’s not entirely new, that the proportion first-class degrees is greatly increasing at some institutions.
In science, it appears that frogs benefited greatly from the event that killed off the non-avian dinosaurs, and we discover a “charming” new particle.
