Associate Professor, Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, University of Melbourne

Jenny is a passionate teacher of anatomy with an outstanding reputation for designing and providing learning opportunities that engage and motivate students in clinically applied anatomy. She has a strong background in curriculum design and coordination with over 20 years experience of teaching anatomy in both postgraduate and undergraduate courses. Jenny has developed a clinically relevant teaching style and assessment practices that encourage students to focus on core knowledge and independent learning practices, preparing them for their future as practicing clinicians. She engages and motivates students using a variety of approaches including a structured lecture series where the emphasis is on exploring difficult concepts and reinforcing anatomical principles, innovative and interactive practical classes, and dissection classes which contextualize the learning and revision of anatomy and pathology and encourage humanistic qualities of respect, empathy and compassion. Jenny organizes the annual donor program Commemorative Thanksgiving Service, a formal service of gratitude to which the family and friends of body donors are invited to meet with the staff and students of the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, at University of Melbourne.
