Join Gethin Evans, PhD as he delves into his experience teaching in the life sciences pre-, during, and post-pandemic and how his department has invested in technology to enhance teaching content and delivery.

Gethin has taught physiology in the Department of Life Sciences at Manchester Metropolitan University since 2008. The Department has a long history of investing in technology for teaching in all areas of Life Sciences. The Faculty of Science and Engineering increased their investment in a variety of technology platforms to assist with teaching content and delivery during the pandemic. Since then, they have evolved the use of these platforms while moving into the “new normal” and the Faculty are due to move into a new facility in Summer 2023 in which “active learning” forms a key part of the strategy moving forwards. Gethin discusses the evolution of the use of this technology – from pre-pandemic, to online learning, the return to business as usual, as well as looking forward to future plans.

Key Topics Include:

  • Understand the context in which the use of a variety of platforms are used within the department
  • Discuss the challenges associated with online learning that these platforms assisted with during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Discuss the key learning outcomes from the use of these technologies and how these can be modified with the return to campus-based teaching
