In this seminar, Anna explored how spatial imagination is taught in the specific setting of the medical school. She discussed the physical, sensory learning that the Making Clinical Sense research team encountered in medical schools in Ghana, Hungary, and the Netherlands. She explored the practices, places, and objects used by teachers in crafting spatial imaginations and what these materials do. In her talk she showed that this type of learning opens up a different kind of knowledge compared to virtual and online educational environments.

This discussion was of much interest to ethnographers, qualitative researchers, and other scientists looking to share datasets in a meaningful way.
The exhibition showcases artifacts used in the classroom to teach the diagnosis of eye disorders. The exhibition also invites you to actively engage. You can for example listen to the experiences of individuals with visual impairments and how they perceive their world with and without corrective lenses. And if you have a story of your own to share, the exhibition provides a platform to do so digitally! For those of you feeling creative, there’s also an exciting opportunity to take a closer look at your own eyes and draw them. In this way, you can notice the intricate details that make them unique.
Come to Hae, Sint Jacobstraat 5, Maastricht to explore yourself! The exhibition is open until March 10th.

We closed the day with some celebratory drinks at Thiessens with our friends from the Skills Lab too, where we were invited to take a look at their wine cellar.
All in all, it was a pleasure to celebrate the hard work of all the authors and advisors and to launch the new book: Making Sense of Medicine!
