insight4me Biology: Ecosystems With University of East Anglia & The University of Sheffield
November 25 @ 11:10 - 12:10
insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12 & 13 students. The sessions support students’ current studies by giving an insight into particular curriculum areas whilst affording students the opportunity to talk to different universities and make informed comparisons about how, in this case, Biology is taught.
In this insight4me Biology webinar for schools and colleges, The University of Sheffield and University of East Anglia will each have roughly 30 minutes to deliver a punchy, topic based ‘micro’ talk. Within an overall session theme of Ecosystems, the universities have the freedom to choose their own topic and use the time to convey the key points of the case studies for the Year 12 students.
Through the discussion, the universities are encouraged to provide an insight into the teaching and learning experience of this topic at university, and compare and contrast how other subject areas across the Biology spectrum might be treated. Students will gain an insight into how these subjects continue beyond A-levels, IB, BTEC and equivalent qualifications.
By hearing from 2 unis, students will also appreciate how the further study of Biology can vary between institutions, contributing to the depth of their HE research and assisting informed decision making.
Full details of the universities and their talks will appear below when available.
- University of East Anglia: Dr Iain Barr – Biological Sciences – Title TBC
- The University of Sheffield: TBC
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Biology and related disciplines.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Biology at university level.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
