Teaching microbiology at undergraduate level

As a senior teaching fellow, most of Dr Judith Bateup’s time and energy is devoted to teaching microbiology to second-year students at the University of Otago, a position she has held for 22 years. Dr Bateup currently teaches in four second-year microbiology courses to a diverse group of students; those for whom microbiology is their passion, to students who take microbiology as a compulsory part of their medical laboratory science or pharmacy professional courses.

Dr Bateup’s involvement with these courses encompasses the entire spectrum of teaching and student interaction; from curriculum development, writing and delivering lectures, laboratory supervision, and exam marking through to pastoral care.

In this seminar, Dr Bateup will address course planning, use of technology, community outreach and her own philosophies on teaching. These topics are applicable to all science disciplines, and Dr Bateup hopes that her seminar will stimulate discussion and further interaction between the Universities of Otago and Auckland.
