On Friday I delivered a practical teaching session based on adaptation and classification for our 1st year Zoology and Biology students from the Faculty of Life Sciences. The session has been developed in collaboration with my colleague Dr Amanda Bamford and together we aim to provide our students with the best possible learning experience. This practical session allows students to get first-hand experience with some of our live animals from the Vivarium collection and introduces them to basic taxonomy and the use of dichotomous keys.
I would like to say a big thank you to Amanda, and to all the demonstrators who helped on Friday. I’d also like to say what a pleasure it was to welcome our students from FLS to the Museum and hope they enjoyed the session as much as we did delivering it.
