The AIMS CETL (Applied and Integrated Medical Sciences Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning) was established in April 2005 with a government award of £5m, and has now become a Faculty-wide grouping for the continuing development of novel approaches to undergraduate teaching and learning. It has already generated an impressive range of innovative teaching resources and methods, which each year significantly enrich the learning experience of over 1,500 Bristol undergraduates studying for degrees in biomedical sciences, medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. The resources are also used by health professionals on postgraduate training courses and by schools and the public in outreach events. The facilities developed to date, and currently used in our teaching and outreach activities, include:
Strong collaborative links between the Schools in our Faculty, with Bristol ChemLabS (the other CETL within the University) and with external partners are all contributing to the continuing development, dissemination and sustainability of a growing portfolio of projects, which are generating increasing national and international interest. These projects, which are unique to our University, help to place Bristol at the forefront of innovative teaching and learning in the biomedical and clinical sciences. I hope you enjoy browsing this AIMS website, which includes contact details for the staff involved should you want to find out more.
