Speakers

  1. David Kaplan - SAS Curriculum Pathways

SAS Curriculum Pathways is a free-to-use online teaching and learning resource, promoting the uptake of STEM subjects in further and higher education. The resource has been developed in the US over a number of years and has been successful for three main reasons. Commitment to teachers: SAS Curriculum Pathways works in the classroom in large part because teachers have shaped every phase of the planning and production process. Focus on content: Teachers, developers, designers, and other specialists clarify content in the core disciplines. Content difficult to convey with conventional methods is targeted � topics where doing and seeing provide information and encourage insights in ways that textbooks cannot. Approach to technology: SAS Curriculum Pathways make learning more profound and efficient, not simply more engaging. Audio, visual, and interactive components all reinforce the learning objectives identified by teachers. This session will enable participants to register for the resource and give them hands-on experience of using the resource.

Cancer: Fact or Fiction - T66

Speakers

  1. Kayleigh Bassiri - Plymouth University

A workshop based on discussing the proposed causes of cancer, and how scientifically factual and/or relevant they really are. I work in cancer research as a PhD student and have spent a number of years studying cancer and how to treat it. I am constantly challenged with questions about cancer that to me seem trivial, but this has highlighted my desire to educate the wider public on information they will gain otherwise from the media, which is not always accurate.
