A Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS) Learning and Teaching Workshop on Inspiring, developing, and supporting the future stars of Bioscience Education


Career development and support for education focussed academics often lags behind that of researchers. This workshop will support bioscience educators at all career stages, by building a sustainable network around career support, promotion and award nominations.

We will share best practice and encourage attendees to link their work in improving student outcomes to their own career development. We will also establish an on-going career mentorship network; delegates are encouraged to become a mentor or mentee or both so that the workshop can have lasting impact.

The workshop will be co-delivered by Dr Katharine Hubbard (Hull), Dr Sue Jones (York St. John) and Dr David Smith (Sheffield Hallam), who have built successful education focussed careers. We have invited Prof Stella Jones-Devitt (Staffordshire) to lead a session on academic careers and effective mentorship; Prof Jones-Devitt has considerable experience with supporting education focussed academics and raising the profile of teaching and learning.

If you are not able to participate for the full day you are still encouraged to sign-up and participate where possible. Resources from the workshop and any session recordings will be circulated to all delegates.
