Pulling My Gut out--Simple Tools for Engaging Students in Gross Anatomy Lectures
Chan, Lap Ki
Anatomical Sciences Education, v3 n3 p148-150 May-Jun 2010
A lecture is not necessarily a monologue, promoting only passive learning. If appropriate techniques are used, a lecture can stimulate active learning too. One such method is demonstration, which can engage learners' attention and increase the interaction between the lecturer and the learners. This article describes two simple and useful tools for demonstration during gross anatomy lectures. One is an apron for demonstrating midgut rotation and the other is a simple "human" model for demonstrating the relationship between the uterus and the peritoneum. (Contains 2 figures.)
