Teaching maths to biologists using non-digital games

University of Sheffield, Friday 30th June 2017 This free hands-on workshop facilitated by Andrew Walsh (http://innovativelibraries.org.uk/) will examine how games and play can help us teach the more numerical parts of the bioscience curriculum. This day is aimed at everyone involved in teaching these subjects in Higher Education settings; post-docs and PhD students with an interest in teaching are also very welcome. Participants will reflect on elements of game design and on how non-digital games could be integrated into their own practice, before having the chance to prototype an educational game of their own.

PoLNet2 announces objectives.

PoLNet2, the second phase of an EPSRC (and now BBSRC) Grand Challenge research theme on the Physics of Life (PoL), commenced in 2017.  Its aims are to shape research programmes, new topics, and continue to grow interdisciplinary connections at the Biology-Physics interface in a sustainable way. There are 6 PoLNet2 objectives and associated activities: Develop research questions from PoLNet1 into active research programmes. Continue to create a pipeline of new PoL research challenges.
