Scholarship of teaching in anatomy
Dr. Sherrie Wentworth and Mr Heath McGowan have interests in core first year teaching in anatomy. They are investigating how students engage with blended learning and on-line teaching resources. They are also examining student progression and assessment techniques for large multi-campus student cohorts.
Key projects include:
- Student use of online learning materials, how and when they are used and if there is a perceived effect on student learning as seen through the assessment results.
- Staff perceptions of developing on-line materials. Staff reaction to the tasks for designing, developing and implementing the use of online teaching materials.
- First year student reaction to blended learning. Studying through focus groups how students respond to blended learning.
Dr. Lloyd White is investigating student learning outcomes and team assessment in second year (mid-level) students in anatomy.
