What your peers and students are saying

"Approaches to consider when moving away from the traditional method of mainly classroom-based learning need to be effective, efficient and engaging. Mastering A&P fulfils these criteria, enhancing and supplementing teaching and encouraging independent, self-directed learning."

— Maureen Harrison, lecturer in child health and winner of vice chancellor's teaching award, University of Southampton
