My research project
Biochemical Literacy: From Signature Pedagogies to Laboratory Simulation Software
Dani is a PhD Student at the University of Surrey, focusing on defining the capabilities underpinning the Biochemical Sciences. This will form a Biochemical Literacy Framework aiming to support pedagogically rigorous undergraduate programmes in the UK and beyond. An extension of this will consider how Biochemical Literacy can be facilitated looking at both what is currently done in the discipline, and what could be done - including the appropriate use of learning technologies. Dani has additionally studied for a GradCert in Learning and Teaching, whilst supporting undergraduate studies to further her practical experience in the area.
