Research summary

Through the AIMS CETL I have been heavily involved in developing and evaluating physiology teaching based on high fidelity human simulators.   We are one of a small number of centres worldwide to be developing this approach for ‘pre-clinical’ medical sciences teaching. 

My teaching development activities also include contributing to the creation of on-line resources for physiology laboratory-based teaching through the e-Biolabs system and to the evaluation of histology teaching delivered using the ‘virtual’ microscope.  Other interests include developing and evaluating the use of peer assessment in the undergraduate curriculum, particularly for laboratory-based work.
