To support the launch of the new curriculum for the use of research animals, we are hosting a workshop to provide advice and support for educators implementing the curriculum.
The curriculum for the use of research animals is intended to support undergraduate and taught masters degree programmes in which students are expected to analyse literature and/or data that have been generated from studies involving animals that are subject to regulation (“research animals”), for example under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 - A(SP)A.
Objectives of the workshop:
To raise awareness of the curriculum
To share knowledge, understanding and good practice
To connect educators with experts to support curriculum implementation
To support educator networking
