Teaching assistant at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Medicine with 5 years of experience in teaching human anatomy

Methodology

My teaching method is based on:

1. live and simple colour schematic drawings in combination with labeled and non labeled images
2. understanding the principles of human anatomy
3. examination and guidance of the student's ongoing learning process

Primarily, I give lessons to students that need help throughout their Anatomy courses at the university.

Background

I work as a teaching assistant at the Institute of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade.
Along with my colleagues I teach human anatomy for 500 students per year during two semesters.
During 5 years of my work so far I achieved good skills in interactive teaching which is strongly motivated
by the students' feedback I gathered throughout this period. Besides teaching, dissection of the human body is also my duty during the school year. I am PhD student in neuroscience, examining the the early life stress in rodents and brain mapping.
