The last year has been a disruptive time for education, especially so for the study of anatomy, which has such a "hands on" nature. In this live webinar Charlotte will review recent research from the field of anatomy teaching, and introduce you to some of the insights provided by the 2021 EDUCAUSE Highlight Report.
