Education Workshop

Sunday 30th November 2014, 2.00 - 5.15pm The University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus, Physiology Lecture Theatre

The ability to communicate science to a variety of audiences utilising a range of modes are key skills that our physiology undergraduates need to master. Specifically, our students must learn to effectively use evidence-based, well-reasoned scientific arguments. This workshop will provide a forum for discussion on how we can aid the development and seek evidence of these skills in our students, by showcasing examples of good practice.

If members have any data or cases they would like to present in the open forum at the end of the programme can they please inform k.colthorpe@uq.edu.au we would love to have you in the programme!.
