What I can offer as a Mentor
Many students studying health sciences or medicine commonly find the disciplines of physiology and anatomy to be a difficult, challenging component of their curricula. Mastery of these subjects is essential not only for a fundamental understanding of the human body, but also as foundational knowledge to support the students’ career options in science or healthcare. Dr Christian Moro has developed innovative, creative and technology-enhanced curricula that engages his biomedical sciences and medical students’ in a rich and interactive learning experience while developing critical thinking and understanding. The impact on student learning has been recognised through the recent receipt of a Teaching Excellence Award, a National Teaching Citation, the AFR Higher Education Award, International Teaching Awards, and institutional commendations received for every semester taught. Many of the physiology educational curricula created by Dr Moro, including applications, software and learning resources are freely available and now utilised to enhance learning and teaching by tens of thousands of students and academics around the world.
