Learning Science at ISEE 2018 - A Connected Engineering Curriculum

Learning Science are proud to sponsor and exhibit at the 7th International Symposium of Engineering Education (ISEE 2018) conference at UCL Faculty of Engineering on the 17th and 18th July 2018.

The overall topic is A Connected Engineering Curriculum - Learning Through Enquiry and Practice. Bill and Stan will be at the Learning Science stand both days. You are very welcome to say hello and find out about how Smart Worksheets could take your teaching labs to the next level.

Feedback: Completing the Cycle

Feedback cycles are useful concepts in biological systems, our everyday lives, and education. However, Higher Education is finding itself in something of a feedback crisis, with low student satisfaction despite high academic workload in this area. Here we explore how changing our conceptions of feedback in Higher Education could address this, and look at some positive cases of innovative feedback practice within bioscience disciplines.

This is the abstract of my article in the June 2018 edition of The Biochemist magazine from the Biochemical Society about Feedback: Completing the Cycle. Click through to access the whole article.

Results from ALT’s Annual Survey: What’s Important to Learning Technologists?

If you work with learning technology, what’s important to you - now and in the future?

For the past four years, ALT (Association for Learning Technology) has put out a survey designed to track current and future trends in learning technology, and how it’s used across sectors. Here we discuss some key findings of ALT's Annual Survey 2017, published 1st March 2018.

How the University of Glasgow’s School of Chemistry transformed its teaching labs

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.

Biosciences e-learning workshop: follow-up article

On Monday 20th March 2017, the Biochemical Society hosted an e-learning training event at Charles Darwin House in London.

During the morning talks, afternoon workshops and our discussions with delegates at our demo stand, it was great to see so much interest and passion for innovative teaching with technology. We were proud to sponsor and attend the event.


We all really enjoyed the morning talks, each of which offered thought-provoking ideas to take away. Here’s our summary:
