Why do you use it?

(Pedagogical approach)

Trains students skills in noticing by attending to the skill of noticing in another profession: medicine; the exhibition is multisensory and deliberately aims to speak beyond vision; it is nearby the Faculty and offers students a fieldtrip with hands-on, tactile elements, that adds a material dimension to the course material.
