Auto-Tutorial Anatomy and Physiology for Associate Degree Nursing Programs.
Mackie, Marlena Kay Baldrige
A prototype for the development of an auto-tutorial course in anatomy and physiology for adult learners in Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) was implemented in the fall semester, 1980, at Waukesha County Technical Institute in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. The format of the two-semester course consists of two hours of scheduled lecture time and three hours of scheduled anatomy-physiology laboratory time each week, plus an independent study session component, the auto-tutorial learning laboratory (ATL). The ATL contains audiovisual materials presenting new content that is to be learned and materials for the reinforcement of content presented in scheduled class sessions. The time devoted to the auto-tutorial learning laboratory varies with each student. Learnings in the courses are scheduled prior to the need for related content in nursing courses. The audiovisual materials in the ATL contain that part of the course content which could be presented effectively on filmstrips and cassettes and were selected from commercially produced materials rather than instructor-produced. Support materials have been written to guide and assist the student in achieving the course objectives. Instructional objectives are printed and handed to students for each unit. A combination of study guides, review sheets, and self-tests have been prepared for support of student learning in the auto-tutorial laboratory sessions. (A list of the audiovisual aids used, with their manufacturers, is included in the document.) (Author/KC)
