Public Engagement & Spotlight Education
Dr Barbara Kremeyer
Department of Genetics, Evolution & Environment
Whilst in her post as Teaching Fellow in GEE, Dr Barbara Kremeya initiated a video project for her first year
students. She was successful in applying for a UCL Teaching Innovations Grant to purchase video and audio equipment.
As part of their first year studies, students were asked to produce a 3 -5 minute digital story in small groups, on a genetics topic of their choice. The stories were designed to be engaging to a lay audience with a general interest in science. Digital stories were peer assessed and double marked using criteria including scientific content, background research, structure and creativity.The best three digital stories are shown here and the students that produced these stories will receive a signed copy of a book written by Professor Steve Jones.
