Mapping Anatomy’ brings together level one students from radiography and from art and design to learn some components of anatomy through an innovative teaching strategy. It aims to challenge culturally and academically constructed views of the body and expose the dimensional and narrative implications of form and movement within the body through mapping inner anatomy onto real bodies by painting. The aim is to test a strategy for a more diverse teaching repertoire to promote deeper learning, where the learner understands the meaning behind the subject matter or data that must be learned. Furthermore the project seeks to initiate professional (Warner and Rizollo 2006) communication skills across disciplines and to enhance the induction to programmes and to the teaching and research university.
