AAA is hosting a pair of “Pivot to Fall 2020” webinars presented by the Association of Anatomy, Cell Biology and Neurobiology Chairpersons (AACBNC) and the Association of Medical School Neuroscience Department Chairpersons (AMSNDC) to help anatomy educators succeed in delivering engaging instruction and experiences amid the COVID-19 pandemic. These webinars are free and open access. Following the live event, AAA members get exclusive access to the on-demand recording.
Face-to-Face, Hybrid, Remote Approaches to Gross Anatomy Lab
As we approach the fall semester under the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for development of alternative instructional methods, logistics, and technologies for the anatomy lab experience is unprecedented. Join us as we discuss a range of approaches to maintaining the lab experience, from in-person labs with social distancing parameters to development of in-house anatomical donor resources to implementation of commercial applications in the remote setting.
This webinar is free and open access for both members and nonmembers.
Dr. Jennifer Brueckner-Collins serves as Professor and Vice Chair for Educational Programs in the Department of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology at University of Louisville' Health Science Center. Her scholarly work focuses on developing and evaluating innovative approaches in teaching and anatomical sciences. She co-directs the Distinction in Medical Education track in the School of Medicine. Her most recent curricular development interests include incorporating humanities and mindfulness into anatomy education.
Dr. Matthew Kesterke teaches Human Structure & Function, Growth & Maturation, and Evidence-based Dentistry at the Texas A&M College of Dentistry, working to integrate new teaching modalities, assessment methods, and clinical methods into an integrated curriculum for health care students. Dr. Kesterke also oversees the Gross Anatomy Laboratory, conducting research on bone and epithelial tissue pathology, craniofacial growth and development, and 3D assessment of surgical intervention.
Dr. Elizabeth Spudich received her Ph.D. in Developmental Biology and Experimental Teratology from Thomas Jefferson University. Following a career at GlaxoSmithKline, she transitioned to education in the Biology Department of Drexel University. Since returning to Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Medical College to assume stewardship of the Human Form and Development course, Dr. Spudich has been deeply involved in curricular reform and helped design SKMC’s new JeffMD curriculum. In SKMC, she currently serves as the Anatomy Thread Director, the Cardio-Pulmonary Block Co-Director, and the Director of the Visualizing Anatomy elective in JeffMD’s Humanities curriculum.
