This VIT&L Week podcast focuses on some of the National Forum’s Inaugural Teaching and Learning Research Fellows. Associate Professor Geraldine O’Neill, UCD, Assistant Professor Brett Becker, UCD, Dr Barry Ryan, TU Dublin and Professor Chris Lynch, UCC talk about why the fellowships are important and how they have shaped them as teaching and learning scholars.
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.
