ASCEPT Education Forum Workshop
Novel ways of incorporating technology in our teaching – what works and what doesn’t
Date: Sunday December 4, 2011 Time: 1.30pm - 5.00pm
Venue: Perth Convention Centre
This session will enable interaction between the teaching groups of the two societies to identify common issues and ways that we may be able to work together to address these. In addition, this workshop aims to showcase ways that technology can be incorporated into classroom and practical teaching to engage students and improve learning outcomes. It is hoped that these talks will stimulate discussion about advantages and potential pitfalls of using available technologies in the teaching of pharmacology (and physiology).
