Fostering laboratory, enquiry and cross-disciplinary skills: A digital journey

Dr Rosemary Clyne at Queen Mary University of London is the recipient of the Biochemical Society’s Teaching Excellence Award 2021. Rosemary joined Queen Mary’s School of Biological & Chemical Sciences as one of the first lecturers on the joint programme in Biomedical Sciences with Nanchang Chinese University.

In her award lecture, Rosemary will discuss some of her approaches toward teaching laboratory and enquiry skills, including the development of novel digital learning resources. These include an online virtual lab and a collection of video demonstrations that make a variety of research techniques more accessible, and a student-generated video project to foster cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge. She has also designed and implemented a team-based dissertation module in Nanchang that ensures a research-driven curriculum for all students, regardless of their rank. She has further devised a University-wide employability initiative and embedded leadership shadowing opportunities that engaged students with a host of leaders to support their career ambitions. The award lecture will also include some reflections on her recent experience implementing online teaching delivery for the students in China.

Rosemary is a Principal Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy and the recipient of three consecutive Queen Mary Education Excellence Awards for her pedagogical work.

This webinar is held ahead of the Society’s ‘Evolving molecular bioscience education’ online training course which is free to attend for members of the Biochemical Society and FEBS constituent societies.
