Learning and teaching strategies
Innovation paper, Seminar Room 1
Active learning is a recognised approach to enhance student engagement (Machemer & Crawford 2007). Active learning techniques, can assist with teaching science-based subjects such as Neuro-Anatomy (Lujan & Dicarlo 2006). Students based at Sheffield Hallam University engage in active learning tasks for understanding Neuro-Anatomy. Findings from an evaluation survey in 2016 indicate student learning is enhanced through the use of these learning techniques and an eclectic approach. Resources and approaches will be demonstrated at this event. These include model and collage activities, and introducing the 'Take the Neuro-highway' board game.
