Experience in Module Development and Assessment

Module content for ‘Kinesiology 814 2021’ 

Msc Eng Sci Biomedical Engineering 

(Institute for Biomedical Engineering, IBE) 

Division of Clinical Anatomy in collaboration with IBE. 

Mr Jaudon Foiret and I reconceptualised the old ‘kinesiology 814’ module content to be a 

biomechanical engineering orientated general anatomy module. The outcomes focused on: 

Introduction to field discourse for engineers. 

A basic knowledge of human anatomical structures and movement. 

Developing an ability to communicate with healthcare providers about anatomy. 

The skills to use textbooks and electronic reference material. 


Module content for ‘Sports Anatomy Module’ 2019 & 2021 

MSc Sports and Exercise Medicine 

(Institute for Sports and Exercise Medicine, ISEM) 

Division of Clinical Anatomy in collaboration with ISEM. 

Prof Wayne Dermann approached me in 2019 to help develop content for his MSc program and 

incorporate dissection sessions. In 2021 Mr Jaudon Foiret and I developed the content further, 

incorporating Primal Pictures. 


Module content for ‘Forensic Bone Trauma Course’ 2 – 6 Sept 2019 

Diploma course for clinicians and forensic anthropologists 

Coimbra University, Portugal 

Part of Bakeng se Afrika project. 

Co-presenter with 

Prof Ericka N. L’Abb , Head Forensic Anthropology Research Centre (FARC) UP and Prof Steven A. Symes, Applied Forensic Sciences and Anthropology, Mercyhurst University. 

One week course for professionals that have to interpret injury patterns on human remains. 

Focus was on the injury patterns seen in blunt trauma, ballistic trauma and paediatric trauma. 


Module content for ‘Beatings, Bullets and Broken Bones, Medical and Forensic Bone Trauma course. 

Diploma course for Anthropologists, Medical professionals and Pathologists. 

Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University. 

29 Nov – 1 Dec 2021 


Prinshof Campus, University of Pretoria 

1 – 3 Nov 2021 

Part of Bakeng se Afrika Project. 

Co-presenter with: 

Prof Ericka N. L’Abb , Head Forensic Anthropology Research Centre (FARC) UP and 

Dr Allison Ridel, post doc researcher and 3D Imaging and statistical trainer UP 

A 3 day course about the interpretation of skeletal trauma patterns. The course incorporated the use of 3D Printed models and optical 3D Scanning. 


Assessments for ‘Preclinical Musculoskeletal Anatomy 371 2020 and 2021’ 

With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessity of online teaching Mr Bryan Bergsteedt and I used Primal Pictures to develop new assessment questions to simulate the traditional ‘cadaver spot tests’. 


Assessments for FC Oth (SA) final exams 2019 

(Colleges of Medicine of SA, CMSA) 

Division of Clinical Anatomy in collaboration with the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery. 

For the CMSA final Orthopaedic exams I designed 2 OSCE stations testing clinical anatomy knowledge in the context of surgical approaches. 

Cadaver station: Prosected shoulder to demonstrate and discuss the delto-pectoral approach to the shoulder. 

Dry-bone station: Pelvis and femur with muscle origins and insertions, candidates were asked to identify muscles encountered in the Smith-Petersen approach to the hip.
