For a number of years the Forensic Science Unit at the University of Strathclyde has offered teaching in the forensic sciences at undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate level (MSc, MPhil and PhD). The Unit also undertakes professional short course training where courses are tailored to individual needs and may count towards a post graduate award. Traditionally this teaching has been supported by lecturing, tutorials, practical and problem solving exercises. Video and CD-ROM technology has also been used very effectively at undergraduate level. With the continuing requirement to support student learning through interactive technologies and specifically to provide on-line assessment the use of the World Wide Web as a tool to achieve has also been successfully implemented.
