[Extract] The subject “Anatomy: structure and movement” is a first year anatomy course compulsory for Biomedical Science students and elective for Bachelor of Science students. This subject includes modules on both human and comparative vertebrate musculoskeletal systems (MSS). Whereas there is an excellent textbook for human MSS we have not found an adequate textbook that targets the key learning outcomes for the comparative vertebrate MSS module. We believe that this is one of the primary reasons that students struggle with this module, much more so than the human module, as borne out in the assessment data. Our aim was to create a targeted learning resource for the students and to encourage more independent and active learning through this resource.
