Biology is widely known as an experimental science. However, contrary to this popular notion, it is a rich terrain for theory construction. This workshop seeks to provide a rudimentary introduction to the art and craft of theory construction in biology as a foundation for learning, inquiry and research in Biology. It necessarily involves critical thinking, and critical reading as well.

Who is this workshop for?

Bachelor's, Master's and PhD students in the life sciences, health sciences, and medical sciences.

What can you expect out of the workshop?

  • get a rudimentary idea of what a (biological) theory is;

  • get a glimpse of the core concepts involved in biological theory construction; and

  • develop rudimentary abilities for theory construction.
