Workshop: Alternative Pedagogies for the Teaching of Anatomy and Physiology
(Workshop videos launching Monday 19 April 2021)
In this video, Nat will show you 7 alternative ways that you can teach anatomy and physiology. Inspired by the work of Dr Tyson Yunkaporta, she takes you though how she applies the sharing of stories, learning maps, non-verbal activities, symbols and images, land links, non-linearity and the concept of deconstruct reconstruct to her teaching practice. This is a fast paced workshop with hands-on practical ideas that support the varied learning needs of many students. More practicality and less PowerPoint slides!
