Teaching innovation research

Many of our innovations in education have been developed as a result of funding awarded in 2005 by the Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE) to establish the Applied and Integrated Medical Sciences Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (AIMS CETL). These innovations include:

  • pioneering physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience teaching based on Human Patient Simulators to illustrate aspects that cannot be demonstrated on living volunteers;
  • histology teaching, learning and assessment based on our 'virtual' digital microscope;
  • web-based materials, including video, interactive media, quizzes and assignments, that support physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience laboratory-based practical teaching through the eBiolabs system.
