Anatomy Education Podcast

May 7, 2018

Dr Rod Green is an Associate Professor in Human Anatomy at the College of Science, Health and Engineering, La Trobe Universityin Australia. 

Rod joins me for a really interesting chat about all things blended learning and how this type of curricula can support student engagement. We talk about the use of synchronous discussion boards in gross anatomy teaching and how to make the right ‘blend’. Rod is currently serving as President of ANZACA and we discuss some of the current work underway within the association.
