Education in physiology includes lab classes and practical courses on cardiac function. Since the spectrum of available methods in this field has increased over the last years, it has become even more important to define clear educational goals as a basis for choosing appropriate methods and instructions.
Besides receiving information on the past and present of teaching cardiac function to undergraduate students, participants will get the opportunity to test two different simulation software packages on heart physiology. Evaluating the simulation software will involve answering self-developed questions in a simulated classroom-setting.
The workshop is also meant to be a forum for sharing knowledge, exchanging different concepts, getting support and discussing real-life problems with experts from various different institutions.
