Teaching immunology: how to innovate

Zoom Meetings


The BSI Teaching Affinity Group will host its inaugural event, 'Teaching immunology: how to innovate', on Wednesday 21 September from 13:00 to 14:30 BST. This group will be a forum to enable those active in immunology teaching at higher education institutes to come together to discuss activities relevant to teaching and learning. This first event will focus on innovative teaching techniques with presentations from all the past winners of the BSI Immunology Teaching Excellence Award which will be followed by a panel discussion covering a variety of topics from approaches to blended learning to sharing resources across the immunology teaching sector and more. 

This online event is hoped to be the first of many over the coming years from this new BSI Affinity Group and all teaching professionals in the immunology sector are encouraged to attend and participate. Registration is free for all to attend.
