About Dr. Tim Wilson

I have the pleasure to facilitate the education of a wide range of students in gross anatomy. From undergraduate students in Kinesiology, graduate students in Clinical Anatomy, Occupational Therapy, and Physiotherapy to Dental students, each class presents its own persona, breadth of experiences, and indeed challenges. My goal is to create a learning community regardless of class size where each student is empowered to learn the materials in their own way. I incorporate participation technology and blended learning approaches whenever possible and the gross cadaveric laboratory remains a central tenant to our learning approach. I maintain that I learn more than I teach on a daily basis.
My interdisciplinary research interests revolve around the CRIPT lab, The Corps for Research of Instructional and Perceptual Technologies. This unique digital anatomy research lab is home to many young researchers and faculty collaborators. Our aim is to become a world leaders in digital anatomy education scholarship through these objectives:
My Lab, The Corps for Research of Instructional and Perceptual Technologies (CRIPT) aims to become a world leader in digital anatomy education and evaluation through these objectives:
Characterize learner behaviours and physiological and perceptual responses related to cognitive load utilizing eye tracking, transcranial doppler ultrasound (TCD), and other measures of learner physiology and attention.
Advance the knowledge base concerning human perception, training and education in face to face and electronically mediated learning environments.
Develop de novo digital anatomical learning objects from human and animal volumetric data.
Evaluate the evolving environments of virtual realms where many learning and educational styles intersect.
Research Opportunities:
Students interested in educational scholarship as it pertains widely to anatomy, image segmentation and digital creation, computer aided or e-learning, multimedia construction, advanced visualization and demonstration, and the curricular incorporation of novel technologies are are invited to enquire about opportunities.
