Outline: The key objective of this project is to develop instructionally designed e-learning modules based on patient case studies, that integrate Pathology, Anatomy and Radiology courseware to enhance the reflective practice and interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary learning. By the end of their studies, the students' professional discipline influences what is known and valued, while the relevance of the academic disciplines is unclear due to lack of engagement, reflection and application in a

The modules will promote reflective practice by revisiting anatomy and radiology, enabling deep rather than surface learning, and transferring information to long-term memory and into work practice. There is also strong evidence that instructionally designed e-learning modules are more flexible in addressing the divergent range of learning styles in students and have proved to be 30% more engaging than face-to-face delivery. 1,2 Methods and Materials: Post-delivery data will be collected with regards to student engagement using an anonymous questionnaire and focus group session in order to collect students' feedback regarding the developed e-modules. Student written questionnaires will be comprised of a mixture of Likert based responses and open ended questions that will be used to elicit the perceived benefits of this interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary learning and reflective practice. Results and conclusion: At the time of abstract submission, phase 2 of the project (e-module delivery) is underway. Post-delivery of the e modules data will be collected with regards to student engagement, interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary learning and reflective practice by means of student surveys, focus group discussions and the course experience survey.
