bioCEED focus areas
bioCEED develops biology educations that fill future needs in science and society. We achieve this by connecting scientific knowledge, practical skills and societal applications throughout our educations, and by bringing the strengths of the research culture into the educational practice.
We create digital platforms for biology students
Our project bioSKILLS focuses on the importance of transferable skills in biology education. We develop web-based platforms and resources that help students increase their numerical competence, writing and practical skills. bioST@TS, bioWRITE and Learning Arctic Biology are among these platforms.
Students as partners and project leaders
We give biology students resources to design, develop and run the platforms and arenas that they define as relevant for biology education.
Check out biORAKEL and unisBREAKFAST, two projects that create bridges between students across the curriculum. Visit also bioSPIRE and UNISprout, through which bachelor students get a taste of practical biology.
Students communicate their experience in blogs, posters and videos
Students use the media to communicate their passion for biology. They produce video tutorials to help their peers (Teach To Learn), and present their projects in posters (bioPITCH). Live from fieldwork or work placement, they share their experiences in the form of blog posts and posters. Visit Learning Through Experience and Biologipraksis UiB and follow them as they discover practical biology.
