The vision on Learning and Teaching was given centre stage at the Leiden University Education Festival

Carolina Jost gave a trail session at the festival introducing a newly developed Peer-feedback module.

Traditionally, the study of the microscopical structure of tissues has been an essential part of (bio) medical education. Formerly histology was taught using traditional microscopes, nowadays this education is increasingly offered virtually. Regardless of whether traditional or virtual microscopy is used, the learning objective remains the recognition of structures, even if these structures do not display the ideal - textbook-example- image.

With the introduction of virtual microscopy, additional, more activating, online forms of education are being used, allowing students to practice recognizing structures. In this session the participants got acquainted with the newly developed Peer-Feedback  module in Blackboard that allows students to practice recognizing microscopical structures.
