The Evolution of Embryology Education
|Embryology is a cornerstone of both Medical Education for medical students and Developmental Biology for science students. In this presentation I will explore how the teaching of Embryology has evolved in our Medical School with the entry into the digital age and the expansion of new teaching and research techniques.
(16th to 18th century)
Placenta and Fetus (Spiegel and Casseri, De formato foetu liber singularis, 1626)
Spiegel and Casseri - De formato foetu liber singularis (1626) Published posthumously by Spigelius' son-in-law, the physician Liberalis L. Crema of Padua.
Govard Bidloo - Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams, Amsterdam: By de weduwe van Joannes van Someren, de erfgenaamen van Joannes van Dyk, Hendrik en de weduwe van Dirk Boom, 1690.
William Smellie - A sett of anatomical tables, with explanations, and an abridgment, of the practice of midwifery (1754) He also helped develop the delivery forceps which by the late eighteenth century were a well-known standard obstetrical instrument. Set of Anatomical Tables

Wilhelm Braune - Topographisch-anatomischer Atlas : nach Durchschnitten an gefrornen Cadavern, Leipzig: Verlag von Veit & Comp., 1867-1872. An Atlas of Topographical Anatomy (1877)
(late 18th century)
|Obstetric models life-size wax models and scaled (1:3) terracotta models, examples of techniques for teaching medicine and obstetrics to midwives and surgery students at the end of the 18th century.

2004 New Medicine Program
- Previously lectures and practicals covering a semester.
- Embryology became "integrated" into new cross-discipline courses.
- Replace powerpoint slides
- Can be formatted for printing
- Accessible at all times (including Mobile Access)
- Can be opened during associated practical class
- Links to:
- Related online pages, including practical, audio etc.
- Organised into a timeline
- Each page worked through with the demonstrator
- Independent time to ask questions
- Students can cut n paste for their own notes
- Online Quizzes | Category:Quiz
Student Project Examples
- Part of the Medicine undergraduate program allows for individual students to work on research or educational projects related to medicine.
- The projects are academically supervised and are described as an "Independent Learning Project" (ILP).

|Embryology iBooks 2013 software update now allows iBooks to be downloaded and read on tablets, laptops and desktop computers.|
- I remind you that I do not intend to cover everything shown on this seminar page. Some content can be returned to and studied in your own time.
- Embryology education will continue to evolve online as new technologies and research techniques are developed.
- Finally, and most importantly, I thank all my Contributors who have helped make this a site so rich in embryology content.
