Effective Use of IT: Guidance on Practice in the Biosciences
Introduced by Lorraine Stefani, this Guide is the second in the Teaching Bioscience Enhancing Learning Series published by the Centre for Bioscience.
The book follows the series format of theory augmented with bioscience case studies. In the first three chapters Lorraine explores the use of technology in teaching and learning, curriculum design and assessment. The second section of the book features bioscience case studies which cover a wide range of topics and subject areas such as: using online databases and predictive modelling to answer questions about global population and food requirements; Really Simple Syndication (RSS) – using the Internet in innovative ways to enable students to access, evaluate and use information; and computer-based assessment to set the pace of learning.
