Bell, Floyd E., III; Wilson, L. Britt; Hoppmann, Richard A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Ultrasound is being incorporated more into undergraduate medical education. Studies have shown that medical students have positive perceptions about the value of ultrasound in teaching courses like anatomy and physiology. The purpose of the present study was to provide objective evidence of whether ultrasound helps students learn cardiac…

Colthorpe, Kay Louise – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Physiology courses are considered to be challenging for students to master due to the highly conceptual nature of the discipline and the substantial cognitive effort required to understand disciplinary knowledge. Students must choose appropriate learning strategies to develop their understanding, as their choices may influence both their…

Woodley, Sarah K.; Freeman, Peter E.; Ricketts, Tiffany D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
To better prepare physiology students for 21st century careers, we incorporated classroom-based undergraduate research experiences and service learning/community-engaged learning (SLCE) into a college-level physiology laboratory course. The interventions were incorporated over 4 yr and assessed using validated surveys of student-reported learning…

Brown, S. J.; White, S.; Power, N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
Using an educational data mining approach, first-year academic achievement of undergraduate nursing students, which included two compulsory courses in introductory human anatomy and physiology, was compared with achievement in a final semester course that transitioned students into the workplace. We hypothesized that students could be grouped…

Henriksen, Erik J.; Atwater, Anne E.; Delamere, Nicholas A.; Dantzler, William H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2011
The American Physiological Society (APS) and APS Council encourage the teaching of physiology at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels to support the continued prominence of this area of science. One area identified by the APS Council that is of particular importance for the development of future physiologists (the…

Johnson, Shereé M.; Owens, Tamara L.; O'Neil, Jahn N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Although human patient simulation (HPS) began more than a decade ago, substantial evidence argues for increased use of simulation in teaching basic science courses, such as physiology and the full integration of simulation into medical school curricula so as to benefit both educators and learners. The introduction and application of simulation in…

Stieben, Margaret; Halpin, Patricia A.; Matyas, Marsha Lakes – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
Since 2005, nearly 600 Physiology Understanding Week (PhUn Week) events have taken place across the U.S., involving American Physiological Society (APS) members in K-12 outreach. The program seeks to build student understanding of physiology and physiology careers, assist teachers in recognizing physiology in their standards-based curriculum, and…

Borges, Sidnei; Mello-Carpes, Pâmela Billig – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Physiology teaching-learning methods have passed through several changes over the years. The traditional model of education appears to be linked to the teacher, who resists the use of tools and methods designed to provide something different to the student, depriving the student of new things or even the motivation to realize the applicability of…

Ribeiro, Sidarta; Mota, Natália Bezerra; da Rocha Fernandes, Valter; Deslandes, Andrea Camaz; Brockington, Guilherme; Copelli, Mauro – Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, 2016
Physiology and assessment constitute major bottlenecks of school learning among students with low socioeconomic status. The limited resources and household overcrowding typical of poverty produce deficits in nutrition, sleep, and exercise that strongly hinder physiology and hence learning. Likewise, overcrowded classrooms hamper the assessment of…

Roberts, John K.; Hargett, Charles W.; Nagler, Alisa; Jakoi, Emma; Lehrich, Ruediger W. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Medical education reform is underway, but the optimal course for change has yet to be seen. While planning for the redesign of a renal physiology course at the Duke School of Medicine, the authors used a Q-sort survey to assess students' attitudes and learning preferences to inform curricular change. The authors invited first-year medical students…

Robischon, Marcel A. – American Biology Teacher, 2014
Gas diffusion, as a basis for complex biological processes such as respiration, is a core principle for understanding fundamental physiology. Students, however, often find these concepts challenging, in particular when expressed formally as in Fick's law of gas diffusion. This introduction to Fick's law uses the representations of…

Schuijers, Johannes A.; McDonald, Stuart J.; Julien, Brianna L.; Lexis, Louise A.; Thomas, Colleen J.; Chan, Siew; Samiric, T. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2013
Many conventional science courses contain subjects embedded with laboratory-based activities. However, research on the benefits of positioning the practicals within the theory subject or developing them distinctly from the theory is largely absent. This report compared results in a physiology theory subject among three different cohorts of…

Bian, Hui; Bian, Yan; Li, Jiao; Li, Yue; Ma, Yanhua; Shao, Xiaoxia; Xu, Jiahao – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Peer instruction has been used extensively in lecture courses; however, there is little evidence of its use in laboratory courses. The purpose of the present study was to describe the implementation of the peer instruction method in a physiology laboratory course in China. Second-year medical students attended a 6-wk physiology laboratory course…

Maza, Paul; Miller, Allison; Carson, Brian; Hermanson, John – School Science Review, 2018
Learning and retaining science content may be increased by applying the basic science material to real-world situations. Discussing cases with students during lectures and having them participate in laboratory exercises where they apply the science content to practical situations increases students' interest and enthusiasm. A summer course in…

McFee, Renee M.; Cupp, Andrea S.; Wood, Jennifer R. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Didactic lectures are prevalent in physiology courses within veterinary medicine programs, but more active learning methods have also been utilized. Our goal was to identify the most appropriate learning method to augment the lecture component of our physiology course. We hypothesized that case-based learning would be well received by students and…
