Faculty are invited to a training session for the Libraries’ new 3D anatomy table on Thursday, June 14, 1:30-3:00 p.m., in 213 Hodges Library. Please register to attend by June 11. You may also register to receive a recording of the session.
An official trainer for the touch-screen 3D Anatomage Table will be on site (in town from the Anatomage headquarters in California) to teach best practices and offer ideas for using the anatomy table in your teaching. Refreshments will be provided.
The Anatomage Table is equipped with digital cadavers that allow students to visualize thousands of anatomical structures and to perform virtual dissections as they would on a real cadaver. The Libraries’ table is loaded with four full-sized human models and more than 1,000 pathological examples, including animal cases.
The table will be housed in Hodges Library and will be available for class use beginning fall semester 2018. Additional training sessions will be offered this summer and fall.
The Anatomage software includes supplemental teaching materials and quizzes to support classroom instruction. To access curriculum materials or for further information, contact Melanie Allen, UT Libraries Health Sciences Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The anatomy table was purchased through a grant from the Gladys Brooks Foundation, a supporter of nonprofit libraries, educational institutions, hospitals, and clinics.
