  • Innovative strides were made this year in the Department of Medical Neuroscience in new teaching methodology. Thanks to a grant from Deans office now first-year medical and dental students can watch their way through complex concepts of Head & neck anatomy tailored to their by transforming their computers into virtual microscopes.

  • The idea of interactive video learning to be used as an educational tool is growing as these videos are being used in different medical schools across the Canada, have even crossed the border to some medical schools in the United States and across to the U.K.

  • My vision is to have medical schools have access to this tool for the betterment of medical and dental schools in their learning pursuits and we share our resources with each other.

  • From a faculty perspective: the videos will lessen time commitment from the faculty as it will cut down on the hours spent to give extra help tutorials. The videos actually have an extra help component where students are able to quiz the knowledge that they have learnt from watching the videos. The videos have a visual component where students can study the difficult concepts, normally found quite hard to grasp, easier than the regular lab-lecture-textbook method of teaching.

  • There have been four head & neck video series and three pelvis & perineum video series developed in total.
