BBC Radio: Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme
Dr Alyson Tobin co-ordinator of the School of Biology module "Communicating and Teaching in Science" talks to Libby Purves on BBC Radio 4's "The Learning Curve" about the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme.
The Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme provides university departments with a framework for a classroom-based degree module, in which science graduates work alongside classroom teachers. As part of the UK initiative, a new module has been launched at the University of St. Andrews, and it is the largest model operating in Scotland. The scheme gives students experience of communicating with school pupils and providing useful assistance to schools by sharing their current knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm for their science, technology or mathematical subject.
