Audio-Tutorial Project: An Audio-Tutorial Approach to Human Anatomy and Physiology.
Muzio, Joseph N.; And Others
A two course sequence on human anatomy and physiology using the audiotutorial method of instruction was developed for use by nursing students and other students in the health or medical fields at the Kingsborough Community College in New York. The project was motivated by the problems of often underprepared students coming to learn a new field and by the time constraints caused by students' part-time status. An elementary biology course was divided into 28 learning modules (14 per semester). The program included a student study guide, taped lessons, small and large assembly sessions, an independent learning center with 30 carrels, and performance tests for each module. An analysis of the program is being planned that will use student questionnaires, an analysis of student time, and a comparison with students taking the human anatomy and physiology courses without audio tutorial instruction. The audio tutorial approach is an ideal method of fostering individualized learning, particularly for those students who have experienced academic difficulty. (WH)
