Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

To realise student success, higher education institutions must take into account that the majority (88% in 2017/2018) (HEA, 2018) of their students are still adolescents, without fully developed cognitive, social, emotional and self-regulatory capacities, living and learning in a socio-cultural environment that offers less external regulation than ever before. The knowledge that many students in higher education are in developmental transition spotlights opportunities to construct academic and campus contexts that supports this transition.

The Irish Journal of Academic Practice (IJAP) is published online once annually at Technological University Dublin. IJAP is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes scholarly and practice-based articles, case studies, opinion & reflective pieces and reviews relating to learning, teaching, assessment and technology within higher education.

Through the inclusion of insightful provenances and case histories, students are taken on a journey back in time to learn not only from the original donors, but also from the physicians and anatomists who treated and prepared the specimen, offering fascinating insights into the healthcare systems and the education values of the time. Careful consideration was given to which specimens were to be showcased. Specifically, those over a hundred years old, without identifying features or sensitive features such as developmental anomalies.

This resource has been created by an interdisciplinary project team at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin and was funded through the Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund 2020.
