Event details

As an experienced technician or teacher, you will be aware that many Biology practicals do not give expected results in lessons. You might therefore be concerned about providing practicals for new specifications, or for new topic areas of Biology. The course looks at ways to resolve the problems of getting consistent results, considering key practicals in current specifications particularly the 2015 A levels. We will also introduce techniques for gene technology and focus on practicals that relate to other recent developments in Biology. Suitable for: Experienced Technicians, Teachers. Course led by Mary Philpott.
