Mortier, Teresa; Yatczak, Jayne – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2016
Understanding student learning in health science professional programs is both timely and relevant and is the focus of this article. "The Table of Learning" by Lee Shulman (2002) provided a tool for an interdisciplinary reflection surrounding student learning in clinical laboratory science and occupational therapy. Utilizing the taxonomy…

Freitas, Maria João; Silva, Joana Vieira; Korrodi-Gregório, Luís; Fardilha, Margarida – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2016
At the Portuguese universities, practical classes of life sciences are usually professor-centered 2-hour classes. This approach results in students underprepared for a real work environment in a research/clinical laboratory. To provide students with a real-life laboratory environment, the Non-Stop Lab Week (NSLW) was created in the Molecular…

Shahriari-Rad, Arash; Cox, Margaret; Woolford, Mark – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2017
This study was the fourth study (Study 4) of four consecutive cohort studies (2007/2008, 2008/2009, 2009/2010 and 2010/2011) of over 520 dental undergraduate first year students at King's College London as part of their 5-year undergraduate programme. The study reported in this paper is a 2-year longitudinal investigation of 140 first year…

Ververi, Athina; Vargiami, Efthymia; Papadopoulou, Vassiliki; Tryfonas, Dimitrios; Zafeiriou, Dimitrios I. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2012
The purpose of this study is to describe clinical and laboratory data, as well as comorbid disorders in Greek children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Data were retrospectively collected for 222 children aged 1.5-9 years. The mean age at diagnosis was 43.7 [plus or minus] 17.6 months. Significantly earlier diagnoses were noted in children…

Clark, Ginerva A.; Humphries, Marisha L.; Perez, Jessica; Udoetuk, Stella; Bhatt, Kruti; Domingo, Jennifer P.; Garcia, Megan; Daubenmire, Patrick L.; Mansuri, Nazminbano; King, Maripat – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Knowledge of functional groups provides students with a language for organic chemistry. However, students in a health science chemistry course do not plan to be synthetic organic chemists and, therefore, need examples of how functional group chemistry is relevant to their vocational goals. We have developed a lab to demonstrate how simple…

Jastaniah, Saddig; Hamdan, Abdulrahman; Alhadrami, Abdullah; Almatrafi, Talal; Arif, Ahmed; Almalki, Hassan – Journal of Education and Practice, 2016
This work explores a new approach to demonstrate possible forearm fractures in humans as an educating means for student radiographers. The Design of abnormal bones are not normally available as phantoms; the manufacturer usually produces normal human musculoskeletal models for educational purposes. Hence fractures and abnormalities are usually…

Chew, Yuan Yuan; Chin, Cheen Fei; Yeong, Foong May – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
Topics on the molecular basis underlying cancer are quite popular among students. Also, excellent textbooks abound that provide interesting materials for discussion during lectures and tutorials about major events leading to cancer formation and progression. However, much less is available for students to conduct experiments for the analysis of…

Veldkamp, Ruth B. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
A phenomenological study was undertaken to understand and describe the nature and meaning of the live experiences of faculty transition from traditional to teaching online clinical laboratory science courses. In order to gain insight into the lived experiences of faculty, in-depth interviews were conducted with 10 faculty members. The task of the…

Hursh, Steven R.; Roma, Peter G. – Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 2013
The application of economics principles to the analysis of behavior has yielded novel insights on value and choice across contexts ranging from laboratory animal research to clinical populations to national trends of global impact. Recent innovations in demand curve methods provide a credible means of quantitatively comparing qualitatively…

Ainsworth, Barbara E. – Quest, 2009
The translation of health research is a process of transforming scientific discoveries arising from laboratory, clinical, or population studies into clinical or population-based applications to improve health by reducing disease incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Initiated by the National Institutes for Health Roadmap Initiative and the U.S.…

Šíma, Jan – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2016
Students not familiar with chemistry tend to misinterpret analytical chemistry as some kind of the sorcery where analytical chemists working as modern wizards handle magical black boxes able to provide fascinating results. However, this approach is evidently improper and misleading. Therefore, the position of modern analytical chemistry among…

Near-peer teaching (NPT) is a strategy in which senior students assume the instructor role with junior peers (mentees). Senior students develop unique skills and knowledge through NPT, an experience which extends their learning beyond content mastery. Different teaching modules featuring NPT were utilized in the human anatomy course at the School…

Millard, Julie T.; Passang, Tenzin; Ye, Jiayu; Kline, Gabriel M.; Beachy, Tina M.; Hepburn, Victoria L.; Klinkerch, Edmund J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
An experiment for the upper-division undergraduate biochemistry laboratory is described in which students investigate the influence of genetic variations of cytochrome P450 1A2 on drug metabolism, using caffeine as a model compound. Saliva samples from human subjects are characterized for a single-nucleotide polymorphism in the CYP1A2 gene…

Stover, Shawn K. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
Previous research has indicated that the use of case studies is effective for promoting critical thinking, enhancing interest in curricular content, and improving student understanding of core concepts. To prepare students for the challenges of a medical education, the biology faculty at a small, liberal arts college attempts to expose…

Feng, Yongqiang; Max, Ludo – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2014
Purpose: Studying normal or disordered motor control requires accurate motion tracking of the effectors (e.g., orofacial structures). The cost of electromagnetic, optoelectronic, and ultrasound systems is prohibitive for many laboratories and limits clinical applications. For external movements (lips, jaw), video-based systems may be a viable…
