Learning is now very engaging and exciting. At the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, a partnership between Nanyang Technology University, Singapore (NTU) and Imperial College London, a classroom could look like a conference hall, a consulting room or even a hospital ward.
The Centre for Clinical Simulation consists of a practical skills lab, a simulated ward and a communication suite with ten-paired consulting rooms. The learning environment is built around realistic hospital scenarios. The simulated ward can be configured to various clinical settings, be it an Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Room or a General Ward.
The Anatomy Learning Centre features 11 alcoves arranged around a central teaching core. Each alcove is equipped with high-tech facilities and an LED screen to support anatomy teaching. Students gain hands-on experience in anatomy by investigating plastinated human specimens and virtual bodies as well as by studying clinical images such as x-rays, ultrasound scans and MRIs.
The new 20-storey building also houses state-of-the-art smart classrooms, the latest medical teaching facilities and high-tech research laboratories. The Learning Studio and Seminar Rooms in the Clinical Sciences Building are designed in a circular layout to encourage more interaction among students and to support group discussions. This facilitates Team- Based Learning, the school’s core pedagogy. They are equipped with state-of-the-art IT systems, including multiple screens around the rooms to ensure a good view of learning and discussion materials for all students.
