Bioscience 2030: recommendations for future curriculum


For over a decade many have been predicting a significant disruption of the higher education sector due to new technologies and financial viability. The Covid-19 pandemic has forced furthers disruption upon the higher education sector. Bioscience 2030: recommendations for future curriculum will explore the challenges and adaptations that the students, staff and the curriculum have experienced as we move through the pandemic. It will address and assess the outcomes of these alternative teaching methods, define curriculum necessities and fundamental improvements that will assist bioscience education to evolve and thrive in the post pandemic era. 

The National Committee for Biomedical Sciences is undertaking the preparation of this report  in 2020-2021. To achieve this, the report will leverage knowledge and expertise from key stakeholders, including the learned academies, universities and industry, nationally and internationally, to establish what these new contexts could be. This collaborative and mutually supportive high-level overview is essential to inform and direct the transformation of our curriculum. 

This page will be updated with opportunities for community consultation as the report progresses.
