Biologists are scientists who study the natural world and all the living things in it, from the largest mammals down to our own microscopic DNA. It helps us understand the “big picture” and is at the heart of many social, economic and environmental issues. Biology practitioners have a vitally important role in making this relevant to students’ lives and developing the universally applicable problem solving/critical thinking skills that can be used in later life or for future STEM related careers
During the biology subject knowledge sessions, trainees will develop their knowledge of the biology curriculum. Key topics covered will include cell structure and organisation, cell cycle (mitosis and meiosis), infection and response, balanced diets, bioenergetics, homeostasis, evolution and ecology. Woven throughout these sessions are the key skills and pedagogy that are needed by classroom practitioners. These include meeting the needs of all learners, metacognition and addressing misconceptions, curriculum planning, assessment and data tracking, preparing for examinations and celebration of achievement and reflection. Biology trainees will develop the ability to work scientifically and to confidently pass these skills on to their students.
