Imperial College Concept Collaboratory (ICCC)

Dr Umang Shah

The Imperial College Concept Collaboratory (ICCC) is a repository for concept-based education at Imperial.

The ICCC utilises inquiry based activities, interactive virtual labs and innovative learning materials such as comics and games that can be accessed by staff and students across a range of courses and disciplines.

Dr Umang Shah from the Department of Chemical Engineering is leading this project and will be joining us to talk about the progress to date.

Making tomorrow's doctors today’s teachers

Dr Ged Murtagh

Dr Ged Murtagh from the Department of Surgery and Cancer has been leading on a project that uses year 5 medical students in the process of course and curriculum design. In doing so he has utilised the students’ educational experience and used it as a driver for learning and teaching innovation.

Employing some of the principles of the College’s Centre for Engagement and Simulation Science led by Professor Roger Kneebone, students use high realism simulation, realistic prosthetic materials and professional actors to simulate learning scenarios. All of this was designed to build microcosms of student partnership learning
