Innovative Medical Teaching Materials

Our teaching and learning fund promotes promising innovative teaching approaches fostered at UZH’s Faculty of Medicine. Its goal is to develop teaching materials that can be used within the Faculty of Medicine.

Effective didactic materials

Students and staff at the University of Zurich’s Faculty of Medicine need to be able to pursue targeted continuing education to keep abreast of the latest scientific findings and medical developments. To do so, they need engaging and methodically effective teaching materials that enable them to acquire knowledge across distinct modules and according to their academic level. Unfortunately, such materials aren’t always available, or they may be outdated. Our teaching and learning fund promotes promising didactic approaches developed by members of the Faculty of Medicine. These approaches can be used to develop teaching materials that foster innovative teaching and provide teaching staff and students with the tools they need.
