What does it look like when learning is authentic? This research presentation will report upon a study investigating students' experiences of an inquiry-based anatomy curriculum and the exploration of such experiences as authentic in nature. Findings from this study explore how students worked collaboratively to foster inquiry-based learning as centred upon one another's interests and curiosities, and in doing so, how their learning came to both reflect and inform notions of authentic learning. At the outset of this presentation, the research study will be explained and research findings will be summarized. Toward the end of the presentation, broader questions relating to student-centred curricula, authentic learning, and student learning experiences will be posed for discussion such that, by the end of the session, participants will be able to discuss potential implications of authentic and student-centred curricular design.
