Education

The Society supports teaching and learning in physiology within schools, universities and beyond. Our educational activities aim to inspire an interest in physiology, encourage learning and support career progression at all levels.

The Society’s bespoke website, Understanding Life, has been developed for those teaching physiology to 11-19-year-olds, and our policy work looking into teaching and assessment in schools aims to ensure physiology remains engaging and relevant in the classroom.

The Society is also committed to supporting physiology in Higher Education. Through our education policy work, we aim to develop a positive environment where physiology can be taught. We also support activities that facilitate the development and sharing of best practice for teachers, lecturers and students through teaching and techniques workshops.

We also have Rob Clarke Awards to recognise the research work carried out by undergraduate Members and non-Members of The Society.
