Teaching microbiology in higher education sessions at Annual Conference 2020

13 February 2020

The Microbiology Society is delighted to be hosting the Teaching microbiology in higher education symposium on Tuesday 31 March at Annual Conference 2020 in Edinburgh for the third time.

The event will once again bring teaching-active members together to share their experiences and refresh and develop their skills, particularly for those interested in applying for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

As the symposium will run parallel to scientific sessions, it is structured in three specialised areas. The first session will focus on the education of AMR through outreach activities. Invited speaker, Adam Roberts will share the impact of his Swab and Send project, and the Public Health England eBug team will demonstrate how their resources and workshops have helped inform the public about AMR.

AdvanceHE will present a session on Higher Education Academy Fellowships and delegates will be able to take advantage of a special application workshop. Those considering or in the process of applying for a Fellowship, including Associate and Senior Fellowship, are encouraged to attend and receive first-hand advice and information to improve their applications.

Finally, a digital tools demonstration exposition will give attendees the opportunity to see how others have incorporated the use of digital methods and tools in teaching microbiology through hands-on demonstrations.

The sessions are open to all delegates registered for Annual Conference 2020. Find out more on the Annual Conference programme page and register your interest online.
