ScotGEN Schools Questionnaire In the second half of 2010, ScotGEN contacted over 400 Scottish secondary schools, asking if science teachers could fill in a short questionnaire about the teaching of genetics. The results of this survey can be seen here. Many useful responses have given us an insight into the range of resources currently being used in teaching, and also the kind of new resources that would be welcomed in the future.
You can access a variety of resources using the menu on the left of this page. The Educators' Pages are being developed to provide information of particular relevance to those involved in genetics education. We plan to add to this over the coming months, and have many learning objects in the pipeline.
Our Learning Resources are divided into 5 subject areas:
Under each subject you will find useful learning objects such as animations and factsheets, for you to view, download and print out.
Additional information, including links to many other websites, can be found under Related Resources.
Evaluation and Feedback
When you download a learning object from the ScotGEN site you will be invited to give us feedback on it. This will enable us to make changes or create new learning objects, as required.
A feedback form will be sent by email 4 weeks after you have downloaded the learning object.
Please contact us if you would like to make any comments about the site. All your comments are welcome and will help us tailor the site to your needs.
We also provide a regulated Message Board, which we encourage you to use. (You must be registered with ScotGEN to have acces to this).
