Learning and Teaching in the Sciences 2008

Crest Practical tips and advice from recognised experts
University of Leicester, Tuesday 20 May 2008, 13.30–17.30 (with wine reception to follow)

The University of Leicester Student Learning Centre, in conjunction with the Faculties of Science and Medicine and Biological Sciences, is pleased to announce the third annual 'Learning and Teaching in the Sciences' event.

The theme for this year's event is the use of Problem Based Approaches in undergraduate science degrees. The event will include presentations on the use of Context and Problem Based Learning (CBL and PBL) in science practicals and on the application and benefits of problem solving activities. There will also be a ‘hands-on’ PBL workshop which will be of particular benefit to those new to these techniques. We are delighted that the day will be composed of sessions run by some of the most experienced science PBL innovators in the UK and hope that many of you will be able to enjoy the opportunity to hear from three distinguished speakers.

The approaches discussed should be of relevance to practitioners across the physical, medical and biological sciences and there will be much to learn and share for both newcomers and experts alike. The event has been designed to allow plenty of opportunity for discussion. If you have any interest in the ways that problem based approaches might benefit your teaching, this is an event not to be missed.
