Development of Interactive Learning Module (ILM) for Active Teaching of Neuroscience to Medical Students

  • When July 21 , 2015, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Who Thomas I. Nathaniel, PhD

    Clinical Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Neuroanatomy, Division of Basic Medical Sciences, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Greenville, South Carolina

  • Where Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, R1059
    2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

The teaching of neuroscience to medical students requires integration of different subdisciplines, including neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuroembryology.

Dr. Nathaniel is interested in how active learning tools can facilitate student-centered learning in neuroscience, and help in a more robust conceptualization of a clinical presentation enabling students to understand clearly the clinical importance of a particular tumor or sudden lesion effects. He will discuss these tools and how they encourage reflection and discussion in the teaching of neuroscience, and contribute to the success and achievement of students learning outcomes in medical education.
