Jump-To-Science a le plaisir de vous inviter à une série de Webinar (séminaires par le WEB) sur
L’innovation dans l’enseignement des sciences de la Vie
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of Didier Picard and myself, we are happy to announce a new webinar series on « Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching of Life Sciences« , with its first talk already coming up on March 17.
This webinar series replaces and complements the planned « 1st Swiss Symposium on Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching of Life Sciences » (cancelled for now because of the pandemic). With monthly online seminars in English (usually on Wednesday at 17.30 CET), it aims to create a forum and a community to help improving the quality of undergraduate education in the life sciences. Its target audience includes program directors and coordinators, teachers, student counsellors, discipline-specific educational scientists and others. Although it grew out of the 1st Swiss Symposium idea, there is not much Swissness to it, and it is therefore definitely also open to any interested persons from anywhere else.
• March 17 (exceptionally at 17.00): Erin Dolan (University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, USA); Undergraduate research at scale: What if the treatment is a CURE?
• April 14 (17.30): Kostas Kampourakis (University of Geneva, CH); Going beyond content knowledge: Addressing students’ preconceptions to achieve conceptual understanding in undergraduate biology
• May 12 (17.30): Katja Köhler and Ernst Hafen (ETH Zürich, CH); Teaching as teamwork – The Center for Active Learning at the ETH Department of Biology
• June 9 (17.30): Pierre Cosson (University of Geneva, CH); Construction of a new bachelor curriculum with integration of multiple soft skills
Organizers: Didier Picard (University of Geneva) and François Lombard (University of Geneva), under the auspices of Life Sciences Switzerland.
