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.

Adoption of digital learning resources in teaching labs: A varied state of play

First year teaching labs have variable digital learning provisions among UK universities, according to a Learning Science survey of delegates at ViCE-PHEC 2017 in York, a leading conference in chemistry and physics higher education teaching.
