Speaker 1: Dr. Tomasz Cecot
Topic: Learning. One Word – Different Meaning
Quick Nerdisms: The neuroscientists claim that are closer and closer to understand the process of ‘learning’. The teachers believe that they already know what ‘learning’ is. The students think that nobody but them knows what ‘learning’ really means… So, who is right?
Nerd Cred: Life-long Learner who is trying to understand the world and himself by travelling, night-long discussions, drinking and eating. A neuroscientist who devoted his life to teaching. Passionate about the structure and function of the human body at different levels of biological organisation is teaching different cohorts of students at different Universities around the globe including Gdansk, Poland (hometown), Southampton UK and Hong Kong.
Speaker 2: Dr. Lap Ki Chan
Topic: Gross Anatomy: A “Gross” Discipline?
Quick Nerdisms: Human gross anatomy is an academic discipline focusing on the study of the structure of the human body. Despite the fact that everyone has a body, gross anatomy is sometimes considered unpleasant and downright offensive to some people. In this talk, Dr Lap Ki Chan will talk about the beautiful side of the this “gross” discipline.
Nerd Cred: Dr Lap Ki Chan is a gross-anatomy teacher (note the position of the hyphen, it is not gross anatomy-teacher) at The University of Hong Kong. He likes teaching gross anatomy and is always trying to find the best and fun ways of helping his students to learn.
