Engaging leaders – Deans of Science workshop
The QS in Science team presented at the Australian Council of Deans of Science Learning and Teaching forum (19-20 July, Sydney). During our session we tabled a report of findings – The State of Quantitative Skills in Undergraduate Science Education – and engaged participants in discussions of our key findings and activities for future planning.
Here’s a short video – an overview of our ACDS workshop – including challenges of QS and then some great strategies from ACDS attendees related to moving forward to further the design of QS across science curricula. Thanks to all the attendees for actively engaging during our session!
