Teacher Fellow

Dr Graham Basten
Health and Life Sciences
School of Allied Health Sciences
Awarded 2010
Clinical and Nutritional Biochemistry
My teacher fellow project has two strands, using analogies to convey complex scientific information and secondly using technologies such as the apple ipad and twitter in a learning environment.
I was recently awarded a Royal Society Partnership grant and a DMU internal grant to work with primary school colleagues to learn best practice around simple analogies.
I have held workshops around using the iPad as a lecture tool to various staff at DMU, and recently undertook a project with CELT.   
Student and external examiner feedback, as well as tweets from round the world, have been extremely positive.
I am keen to capture and this disseminate this knowledge, and publish in peer reviewed journals of pedagogy.
