H3 symposium: Practical innovations in life science education
27 April 2017 - 28 April 2017

The workshop will bring together education professionals working in Higher Education to discuss practical approaches to teaching the life sciences, in the lab, in the classroom and beyond. Over the two days, there will be plenty of opportunity to learn how colleagues have effectively implemented new approaches to teaching and to discuss with all during the networking.
