AuPS is the professional association for Australian physiologists
which was founded in 1960.
Physiology is a key life science essential to
our understanding of how humans and animals function.
With the increasing specialisation of biomedical research, physiology
provides an essential framework within which new knowledge
of cells and molecules can be applied to improving human health.
Key Objectives of AuPS are:
- To promote the advancement of the science of Physiology
- The encouragement of all aspects of research and teaching in this
- The general dissemination of knowledge of this and related disciplines
8-11 December 2013, Deakin University, Waterfront Campus, Geelong, Australia.
Head of local organising committee.

The flipped Classroom in
Sunday 8th December 2013, Deakin University Waterfront campus, Geelong,
Murray Jensen from the University of Minnesota will
be giving the presentation on POGIL. Murray gave a keynote presentation at
the IUPS Education workshop in Bristol in July this year and has some
wonderful examples of POGIL activities in physiology.
The POGIL presentation will lay the groundwork for the following
presentations on the "Flipped Classroom" in
which the invited speakers will illustrate how they have been using the
"Flipped Classroom" in their own
teaching and will provide a forum for a dialogue about how the "flipped
Classroom" can be used in physiology
education. Time will be allocated in the second part of the workshop for
participants to engage in trialling
videos of their own and constructing worksheets (including POGIL) as a
first step towards adopting this pedagogy.

A lecture by Prof. Denis Noble, describing a major change occurring in the
field of evolutionary biology. It is a change that could enable physiology to
become relevant once again to the big question of 'the origin of species'.
