The workshop is designed to maximise audience participation and dialogue. The discussion is scaffolded by the prompt questions (below) with initial responses from a panel of experts from different geographical regions, and sub-disciplines of the anatomical sciences. Audience responses, views and experiences are welcomed and encouraged in this dialogue.

The outcome of this session is to:

  • appreciate the diverse experiences of teaching and learning in the anatomical sciences during the pandemic, and
  • identify common areas that we might collaboratively share and develop practice to advance anatomical sciences education globally.
