Teaching computer programming skills to biologists

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This session will discuss an award-winning case study, which covers a combination of active learning, problem-based learning and student-centred approaches, for teaching a Computer Programming intensive module to a Biology background dominant student cohort. The presentation intends to discuss and debate among the audience how combining different pedagogical approaches and cross-disciplinary teaching practices can help in designing interdisciplinary modules more effectively, and also how the proposed approach from the case study can be deployed in their own teaching practice/settings. In general, this session will be relevant to anyone who is involved in teaching interdisciplinary courses; more specifically, to those from Life Sciences and/or Computer Sciences.
