The Teaching and Scholarship Podcast

The Teaching and Scholarship Podcast is formerly a collaboration between The University of Southampton's Centre for Higher Education Practice (CHEP) and The Faculty of Medicine). Its future is associated with The University of Glasgow and will continue its good work north of the border. It is intended to be of interest to all teaching focused academics in higher education who strive towards teaching excellence and wish to innovate their practice. The podcast aims to promote and raise the profile of teaching excellence within university education.

For our 40th episode we have a chat with Dr Jason Organ from Indiana University over in the USA. Jason is an Associate Professor in anatomy, cell biology and physiology contributing to a lot of teaching, but also finding the time to pursue his research  interests in brittle bone disease. He is Co-Editor and Writer of the Public Library of Science (PLOS) Science Communication Blog. In 2018, Jason received the prestigious AAA Basmajian Award for excellence in teaching gross anatomy and outstanding accomplishments in biomedical research and scholarship in education. One of his main areas of interest is science communication and he has disseminated a fair bit on this topic. Jason and I are old pals, so this one takes a few diversions here and there. So much so in fact, we had to split the conversation in two parts! Enjoy part 1 for now.
