This one-day workshop is for newcomers and relative newcomers to university teaching in the biosciences

A workshop event from the Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS) and the Royal Society of Biology for newcomers and relative newcomers to university teaching. This one-day workshop event is designed to cater for the specific needs of bioscience colleagues who have reached a career stage in which they are called on to provide lectures and other university teaching but who are yet to (or have only recently been) appointed to substantive academic posts. It will also be of interest to researchers, postgraduates, hourly paid staff and visiting lecturers.


The workshop is offered free of charge to attendees from any UK university.

Teaching ‘Lightning Talks' and poster session

If you are interested in doing a teaching related ‘Lightning talk' (5 minute talk with 5 minutes discussion), please send a short abstract (100 words maximum) to Graham Wright at by Friday 14th December 2018. The theme for talks this year is ‘Interesting Ideas in HE'. Talks do not require significant data presentation but are aimed at giving lecturers and HE teachers at an early stage of their career the opportunity to present ideas and discussion points about teaching practice and pedagogy. They are an ideal opportunity to gain some feedback on research ideas you would like to develop.

We would also encourage you to bring a poster (pedagogy or science/discipline-based research) to be displayed during the lunch and other networking opportunities. 


This event will take place at Edinburgh Napier University, Sighthill Campus.
