2018 has been an exciting and busy year here at Learning Science, and we feel like there’s a lot to celebrate! Here’s a roundup of our top seven highlights from 2018 and a sneak peak into 2019.
Learning Science are pleased to announce four new light microscopy interactive resources as expansions to the bioscience pre-lab library. Taken together, they offer students a comprehensive introduction to functional use of a compound light microscope. Used individually, each one functions as a stand-alone resource which targets specific skills. Find out here what your students can achieve with each one.
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.
Learning Science have partnered with Coventry University to bring enhanced pre lab and post lab solutions to their bioscience students.
Find out about how they customised our Learning Science Labs: Bioscience pre-lab package to suit their lab requirements, and worked with us to develop bespoke Smart Worksheets and other auto-graded post-lab assignments to support their students engagement and understanding of practicals with detailed, timely and consistent feedback.
We’re going to be attending the HEA STEM conference in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, on Weds 31st January and Thurs 1st February 2018. The focus this year is Creativity in Teaching, Learning and Student Engagement.
We’ve got a stand and will be running an interactive workshop session on the Thursday afternoon, where we look forward to learning from and sharing ideas with you.
It's called: "Creative techniques to support your laboratory practicals: student engagement via interactive simulations, smart worksheets & more."
Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for May 2017.
This month we’re talking tuition fees, top tips for digital learning, and student resilience among other things.
Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for April 2017.
There’s more change on the horizon in British politics as April saw Theresa May call a snap election for June. This could have implications for the Higher Education Bill – forcing it through or killing it off completely.
We consider how bots, drones and trackers could become an integral part of campus life, and how laptops in lectures, especially of the 9 am variety, could be hindering student learning.
New research announced this month include studying the smartness of squid, how viruses could purify water, and destroying the new polymer £5 note - in the name of science!
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:
