BMTO Teaching Network

Our active teaching network is open to all staff and PhD students in Biomedical Sciences and offers opportunities to discuss teaching related topics, and share experiences and best practice.

The BMTO Teaching Network has been established to promote and celebrate teaching initiatives in Biomedical Sciences by encouraging interactions between all staff involved in teaching and stimulating interest in research in Higher Education.

Events planned over the next year include seminars and workshops led by both internal and external speakers and will run approximately every 2 months.

Next workshop

Wednesday 11 December, 12.30 in Teaching Room 12, Doorway 3

Discuss the vision of the teaching network for 2020

We will identify opportunities to develop the network further and discuss what you would like the network to offer. 

Would you like more examples of good practice, more discussion of the Teaching and Learning literature, more practical tips to help you in your teaching practice?  Make sure to come along with ideas, wishes and suggestions.
