bioSKILLS aims to:
- Focus on the importance of transferable skills in biology education
- Develop learning goals in numerical competence, dissemination, writing and practical skills in field and laboratory work at course and programme level
- Streamline and link teaching and learning of skills throughout the curriculum
- Focus on the skills training on relevance, methodology and practices - in close relation to biological applications and data.
bioST@TS is a web-based platform helping students get a better grip on statistical approaches and increase their numerical competences. bioST@TS introduces biology students to coding in R/Rstudio.
Numerical Competence and Student-Active Research
The project "Numerical Competence and Student-Active Research" focuses on developing and extending the learning platform bioST@TS with quantitative methods and tools, and support student participation in research programs that train numerical skills. The project benefited from a grant from The Olav Thon Foundation.
