Educating the next generation of molecular bioscience graduates has always been about ensuring students are equipped with appropriate key skills that enable them to flourish and succeed in their future careers. In this education workshop we aim through, lectures, demonstrations, group discussion and posters sessions, to share novel ideas and approaches with bioscience educators, to enhance the student experience and potentially improve their employment prospects.
