Gill Jones


Having graduated from Oxford Brookes myself in 2002 I have returned as part of the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy teaching team. I have been teaching at Oxford Brookes as an Associate Lecturer since 2013 and became a permanent member of the team in 2018. 

Previously I have worked extensively in the NHS and in Sports Medicine, where I developed a special interest in shoulder rehabilitation. I completed a Masters in Advanced Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2010 at King’s College London and have experience of mentoring pre and post-graduate Physiotherapists. I enjoy being involved in research and took up a Research Internship at the University of Oxford in 2014.

Current research focus: Anatomy seminars

Developed as a pedagogic research project, anatomy seminars utilising the Anatomage Table are now part of the Physiotherapy programme. The anatomage table is a digital platform hosting real human cadaver software. It has a 3D touch screen, quiz, gaming and motion capabilities. Under the guidance of PALS and the lecturing team, students can remove layers of anatomical tissue, visualise inside a limb as it performs movements, and observe physiology in motion e.g. inside a beating heart.

I connect with other Anatomage users nationally and internationally, sharing new functionalities and ways to engage students in digital anatomy learning.
