ERDP Development Grant. Anatomy Symposium: Technology enhanced learning in Anatomy

The Anatomy and Clinical Skills (ACS) Facility is one of the few facilities at Newcastle which offers teaching for students in all three faculties. The University has recently invested over one million pounds to update ACS.  The new design has increased the available teaching space and incorporates the highest specification of audio-visual equipment, solutions and specialist imaging equipment.   We now have a SECTRA Visualisation Table (currently the only one in England used for undergraduate anatomy teaching) and a glasses-free 3D Alioscopy Screen in order to provide a modern facility which offers cadaveric teaching alongside the most current technology for both anatomy and clinical teaching.

On Thursday 19th July the ACS team will be hosting a regional one-day Anatomy Symposium to showcase our facility and the investments we have made to enrich the student experience and to embed the use of the latest available technology into our teaching practises.  This event will be the official opening of the Facility and we have invited Professor Wojciech Pawlina, an esteemed Anatomy Educator and Researcher to give the keynote address.  Presenters from around the region will help us explore the use of technology to enhance the student learning experience. A full programme for the day will be circulated in early May.

This event is ‘part’ funded by an ERDP Development Grant.  For more information please contact Dr Debra Patten,
