DEVELOPMENT OF A WEB-BASED PLANT SCIENCE TEACHING RESOURCE FOR USE BY UNIVERSITY LECTURERS - The Gatsby Plants Teaching Resource

A. Levesley, S. J. Jopson, C. D. Knight

Abstract

Undergraduate interest in plant science has reached a new critical low; with so few students taking plantbased options that some Universities no longer do a separate Plant Science degree. This raises the question “where is the next generation of British plant science researchers going to come from?”. The Gatsby Plants Teaching Resource http://www.gatsbyplants.leeds.ac.uk/tr aims to support research academics to provide stimulating and inspiring plant science teaching to reverse this downwards trend. The on-line resource will supply a mix of novel teaching ideas, images and practical protocols, as well as holding a database of plant science lecturer contacts so the lecturing community can work together to spread good teaching practice.
