Committee on Education

This page is prepared in part in Slovenian and in part in English. Slovenian was chosen for parts which could be of general interest in the national context.

Cilji skupine za izobraževanje:
1. izboljšanje kvalitete poučevanja (učenja) biokemije v visokem šolstvu
2. pomoč z nasveti tistim, ki bi radi dodali biokemijske vsebine pri pouku kemije in biologije v srednjih in visokih šolah
3. pomoč z nasveti tistim, ki bi radi povečali interes za naravoslovje med otroki in mladino

Aktivnosti skupine:
1. organizacija posvetovanj in okroglih miz na temo biokemija v visokem šolstvu
2. organizacije seminarjev za učitelje biokemije
3. v letih 1999 do 2003 nas je finančno podpiral Britanski svet pri izmenjavah učiteljev biokemije iz Slovenije in Velike Britanije.

 BIOINFORMATICS: a new page on bioinformatics [in Slovenian] - prepared by Gregor Anderluh, Dept. of Biology.

In UK, the Higher Education Academy offers subject-specific expertise for higher education, including Biosciences. A range of teaching and learning resources is available on-line: The ImageBank contains over 1000 digital images related to various bioscience topics (at present only a few biochemistry-related images can be found there). PracticalCompendium will present suggestions for practicals and activities, including student handouts. Centre for Bioscience Bulletin is a newsletter for news and emerging issues, while BEE-j is a peer-reviewed electronic journal on biosciences education (published twice per year).

The journal Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education (BAMBED) is now published by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Inspection copies can be requested from the publisher; the first issue is available from the BAMBED homepage as well.
