FW: Call for papers - Education Symposium - Teaching and Communicating Science in a Digital Age


Teaching and Communicating Science in a Digital Age

15 – 17TH December 2014
Charles Darwin House, London

Plenary speakers: Chris Buddle (McGill, Canada), Maggi Savin-Baden (Coventry), Graham Scott (Hull), Claire Hemingway (National Science Foundation, USA), Volker Zimmerman (IMC, Germany), Bill Davies (Lancaster).


This international symposium, organised by the Society for Experimental Biology, will provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of current and emerging technologies, including MOOCs, VLEs, social media, citizen science apps and games, online marking, lecture recording, podcasts and other digital media, and how they are being used to communicate and teach science. The meeting will cover the practicalities of their use, but also question their validity and appropriateness in different contexts. Throughout, the symposium will consider how the impact of the new approaches can be evaluated.

For more information, registration and to submit an abstract to the meeting go to:

Contributors (papers and posters) will have the opportunity to publish their work in a post-meeting journal special issue.


Please note that the programme, registration and venue details are on the left hand side of the main page. If you are not currently a member of SEB you can register at our discounted rate by joining at the time of registration.


We look forward to seeing you in December. If you have any question please contact me on


Best wishes.
