The need for a new generation of highly trained plant scientists has never been greater. However, there is evidence to suggest that traditional teaching strategies do not provide undergraduates with a deep understanding of the science, and that there is a need for innovation in undergraduate education. A summer project conducted in the Plant Sciences department will illustrate how partnership between teaching staff and students can enhance teaching and learning in the biological sciences. This project has been showcased to Directors of Teaching across the university, and is being used to inform the development of the University’s digital education strategy. In addition, a research project into how undergraduates read scientific papers across the biological sciences will be discussed, highlighting the need for teaching scientific skills as an integral part of undergraduate programmes.

This talk is part of the Plant Sciences Departmental Seminars series.
