Event description

Description

Speaker: Chris Adams, School of Chemistry

Universities are increasingly being asked to produce graduates with 'transferable skills' that will make them 'employable', yet people who have spent their whole working life in the University system are often unqualified to do this. Chris will talk about a unit that he has developed in Chemistry in which undergraduates from the later years of the degree program help first-year students start to develop these skills, and about how this can help with the transition to University.

Bio:

Chris Adams is a teaching fellow and first-year coordinator in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, where he has been teaching undergraduates for nearly twenty years. He is interested in all aspects of education, from digital learning to practical chemistry, and was recently awarded a University teaching innovation grant to try and get first-years to do some real research.
