Title: Teaching with the Dead
Abstract: With the current wave of technology-specific anatomical learning tools, there is one learning tool that remains a constant - learning through dissection. Dissection provides an irreplaceable and unique opportunity to experience three-dimensionality and haptics, as well as human anatomical variability, which is difficult or impossible to replace through other technological tools. Even though dissection is a superior learning tool, it does bring unique challenges for both students and teachers alike.
