Do you teach in a 'service' unit of study?
You are invited to the free 2013 IISME Annual Event - Symposium on 'Teaching science in service units of study: Challenges and strategies'. (Convenors: Dr Meloni Muir and Associate Professor Adam Bridgeman.)
Tertiary academics are acutely aware of the challenge of motivating undergraduate students, particularly in large classes, to engage with lecture material. It can be even more challenging when teaching the basic sciences as service units of study, where students may not see the need for or relevance of these units of study to their degree or career aspirations yet are required to successfully complete them. This symposium will bring together academics and students from a range of disciplines to discuss perspectives on teaching in science service units of study with examples of successful strategies for engaging students.
When: 1:15pm for 1:30pm start and concludes at 6pm (includes drinks and canapes), Wednesday 13 February
Where: New Law School Annex Lecture Theatre 101
