Education & Teaching - ET

The ET Theme is a forum for those who share an interest in delivering innovative physiology teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

This Theme spans the interests of all six of The Society's scientific themes. It promotes the sharing of best practice in all aspects of teaching: from researching, developing and evaluating teaching methods, to learning and assessment for lab and project-based work, lectures and small group tutorials.

Excellence in physiology teaching and the development of a positive environment in which to teach is a priority of The Physiological Society. Teaching fellows and lecturers are eligible for full membership and can benefit from the support this Theme provides.

The ET Theme hosts regular workshops and symposia to facilitate discussion and highlight areas of concern; feedback from such events to The Society’s Committees is a key factor in influencing Society policy and identifying future activities and initiatives.

The current convenors of this Theme are Sheila Amici-Dargan, Nicholas Freestone and Derek Scott.
