Visualising the Invisible

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


One of the hardest things to get across to students at any level is the idea of a concept. This is especially so in the sciences and even more so in the molecular life sciences where the processes discussed are often abstract in nature and unseen. I have taught biochemistry and molecular biology for over 10 years, and throughout all of that time I have tried to teach the subject in the simplest way possible. I have heard accusations of dumbing down the subject or creating ‘edutainment’ for the masses, but I fervently defend what I do as feedback from courses and student engagement in my classes would suggest the teaching approaches I take do work and do allow students to gain a better understanding than I ever did as an undergraduate student, even though the curriculum has remained largely unchanged
