Physiology Education Workshop

What are the generic and technical skills we expect our Physiology students to develop during their degree program?

3 - 4:30pm, Wednesday, 4th December 2019

The Physiology Majors Interest Group (PMIG) of the American Physiological Society recently collated generic and technical skills they thought should be developed by students undertaking a Physiology major in their degree-program. At the AuPS Education Workshop this year, we will use an on-line survey tool to provide anonymous feedback on these 'Physiology' skills. Following evaluation of our feedback, we will develop multiple choice questions to assess some of the specific physiology technical skills.

Facilitators: Julia Choate (Monash University) and Juliey Beckman (ANU)
