Abstract

Traditional anatomy teaching promotes student engagement through use of hard plastic models, dry bones and, in some cases, cadaver dissection. It is questioned if any of these options are effective teaching methods especially as: ‘anatomical models cannot be palpated, auscultated or usefully asked to change position’ (McLachlan and Regan de Bere 2004). The primary learning outcome of anatomy teaching for health professionals is the ability of the student to apply anatomy knowledge to living human beings. This case study focuses on introduction of haptic teaching of anatomy, in the form of body painting, to BScHons radiography and clinical physiology undergraduate students at the University of Ulster.Key wordsHaptic learning, body painting, human anatomy, radiography, clinical physiology, student engagement.
