Crowther, Gregory J.; Wessels, Jason; Lesser, Lawrence M.; Breckler, Jennifer L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
The possible benefits of using music to enhance learning of STEM content are numerous, diverse, and largely unproven. We sought to determine which (if any) of these possible benefits are commonly experienced by undergraduate students and are thus especially worthy of further investigation. Four hundred ninety-three students in nine physiology…

Daemicke, Alexandra K.; Galt, Nicholas J.; Samonds, Karen E.; Bergan-Roller, Heather E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
A central goal of science education is to help students develop higher order thinking skills to enable them to face the challenges of life. Accordingly, science instructors are now urged to craft their classrooms such that they serve as not only spaces for disseminating information, but also an arena through which students are encouraged to think…

Chen, Jian; Zhou, Junhai; Wang, Yong; Qi, Guangying; Xia, Chunbo; Mo, Gang; Zhang, Zhiyong – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Blended learning, is a teaching approach that integrates online self-learning and classroom teaching. When designed well, blended learning courses in medicine can facilitate students to improve themselves in self-learning, understanding, and problem solving, ultimately enhancing their learning efficiency. However, blended teaching methods are…

D., Savitha; A., Taniya – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Although hands-on experience in hematology practical work has been an integral part of physiology education, the students' perception on the importance of the same has remained largely unexplored. The objective of this study was to explore students' perception on the importance of "doing" hematology experiments. The first-year medical…

Demirören, Meral; Turan, Sevgi; Teker, Gülsen Tasdelen – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Problem-based learning (PBL) is an instructional method that offers students the opportunity to develop self-regulatory strategies as an explicit learning outcome. As a multifaceted PBL environment, the guidance of tutors is important to students as they develop self-regulatory learning (SRL) skills and self-efficacy, the most focused motivational…

Rathner, Joseph A.; Schier, Mark A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Flipped classroom teaching has been used by many educators to promote active learning in higher education. This andragogy is thought to increase student engagement by making them more accountable for their learning and increase time on task in the classroom. While there are several systematic reviews that point to improved student results, it…

Halpin, Patricia; Donahue, Ann E.; Johnson, Kathryn M. S. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Experiential learning experiences (ELEs), opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills critically in a hands-on environment, are fundamental to the apprenticeship model of biological and biotechnological sciences. ELEs enhance student-learning gains, increase career readiness, and provide important networking opportunities. However,…

Ainscough, Louise; Leung, Richard; Colthorpe, Kay – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Learning anatomy and physiology at university can be challenging, as students need to understand both the language of the discipline and complex topics, such as system integration. Yet learning strategies are rarely taught at university, making it difficult for students to adopt new strategies, if their approach to learning has not been effective…

Bains, Mona; Kaliski, Debora Z. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
First-year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students entering a problem-based learning (PBL) program are faced with a number of pedagogical challenges, including the development of self-directed learning skills, resource unfamiliarity, and group dynamics. These challenges can make learning anatomy in a self-directed manner less efficient.…

Bordes, Stephen, Jr.; Gandhi, Jason; Bauer, Blake; Protas, Matthew; Solomon, Nadia; Bogdan, Lukasz; Brummund, Dieter; Bass, Brittany; Clunes, Mark; Murray, Ian V. J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Medical students have difficulty understanding the mechanisms underlying hyperkalemia-mediated local control of blood flow. Such control mechanisms are crucial in the brain, kidney, and skeletal muscle vasculature. We aimed to identify medical students' misconceptions via assessment of students' in-class knowledge and, subsequently, improve future…

Terson de Paleville, Daniela; Harman, Kathryn; Richards, Eileen; Jaggers, Jason R.; King, Kristi – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
The Physiology Understanding (PhUn) Week is a national outreach event sponsored by the American Physiological Society. Our PhUn team conducted an event for 551 students (12.5 ± 0.9 yr old) in a middle school in Indiana. The aims of this program were to: (1) teach about the negative consequences of inactivity on cardiovascular (CV) health and…

Zangerolamo, Lucas; Soares, Moreira; de Oliveira Rosa, Lucas Rodolfo; Santos, Karina Rodrigues; Bronczek, Gabriela Alves; Marconato-Júnior, Emílio; Carneiro, Everardo Magalhães; de Lima Barbosa-Sampaio, Helena Cristina – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
The search for more efficient teaching methodologies is a great challenge for Brazilian educators, since most classes are still traditional (theoretical) and have little student involvement during the learning process. Active learning methodologies, where students play a central role in the learning process, are proving to be more effective and…

Esmat, Tiffany A.; Pitts, Joshua D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Student success is an important focus within higher education as it relates to retention, progression, and graduation rates. Limited research exists examining the predictors of success within an undergraduate Exercise Science program. The purpose of this investigation was to examine the viability of an admission policy implemented within an…

Gopalan, Chaya; Fentem, Andrea; Rever, Anna L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
There has been growing evidence that flipped teaching (FT) can increase student engagement. Traditional lecture-based teaching (TT) method was compared with FT and FT combined with retrieval practice (FTR) in a 400-level Exercise Physiology course over eight semesters. In the FT format, lecture content was assigned for students to prepare before…

Judge, Jennifer L.; Cazares, Victor A.; Thompson, Zoe; Skidmore, Lynnda A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Anatomy and Physiology courses taught at community colleges tend to focus laboratory hours primarily on anatomy as opposed to physiology. However, research demonstrates that, when instructors utilize active learning approaches (such as in laboratory settings) where students participate in their own learning, students have improved outcomes, such…
