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.…

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…

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…

Anderson, Olivia S.; El Habbal, Noura; Bridges, Dave – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Peer evaluation skills are not typically taught to students, yet they are expected to provide high-quality feedback to their peers. Gameful learning, a pedagogy supporting student-driven learning, can further reinforce the development of peer evaluation skills, if students are motivated to improve upon them. To better understand the effects of a…

Kottmeyer, Alexa M.; Van Meter, Peggy; Cameron, Chelsea – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
College biology courses commonly use diagrams to convey information. These visual representations are embedded in course materials with the expectation that students can comprehend and learn from them. Educational research, however, suggests that many students have difficulty understanding diagrams and the conventions (e.g., labels, arrows) they…

Nederveen, Joshua P.; Thomas, Aaron C. Q.; Parise, Gianni – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Prelaboratory tasks are used to facilitate learning and introduce and provide context for laboratory work. The application of first-person perspective (FPP) technology may provide interesting new approaches to providing prelaboratory preparation. However, there is limited knowledge as to whether this perspective is useful or enjoyable for students…

Junsawang, Chuenjit; Jittivadhna, Karnyupha; Luealamai, Sutha; Pookboonmee, Renu – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Basic life support (BLS) knowledge is a necessity for nursing students, as they have to deal with cardiac arrest events during their professional career. Existing studies indicate poor BLS knowledge among health science students, including nursing students. Learning BLS requires an understanding of basic sciences, such as anatomy, physiology, and…

Durand, Marina de Toledo; Restini, Carolina Baraldi Araujo; Wolff, Amora C. D.; Faria, Milton, Jr.; Couto, Lucélio Bernardes; Bestetti, Reinaldo Bulgarelli – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Over the years, much criticism against animal use for physiology teaching has been made. Hence, replacement by suitable alternatives has increased in several pedagogical approaches. This study examined students' perceptions of animal versus virtual (video/computer) laboratory classes in physiological sciences associated with the effectiveness of…

Muthukrishnan, Suriya Prakash; Chandran, Dinu S.; Afreen, Naaz; Bir, Megha; Dastidar, Shaon Ghosh; Jayappa, Harsith; Mattoo, Bhawna; Navneet, Arvind; Poorasamy, Jeevitha; Roy, Atanu; Sharma, Anju; Ghosh, Debabrata; Deepak, Kishore K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Didactic lecture is an effective method to quickly pass on a high volume of information to a large number of students. However, if not well designed, lectures can be monotonous and provide only passive learning, with little scope for higher order learning skills. To address this drawback of lectures, we supplemented it with case-based learning…

Kleiman, Amanda M.; Potter, Jennifer F.; Bechtel, Allison J.; Forkin, Katherine T.; Dunn, Lauren K.; Collins, Stephen R.; Lyons, Genevieve; Nemergut, Edward C.; Huffmyer, Julie L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
With increasing medical knowledge, procedural, and diagnostic skills to learn, it is vital for educators to make the limited amount of teaching time available to students effective and efficient. Generative retrieval is an effective and efficient learning tool, improving long-term retention through the practice of retrieval from memory. Forty…

Bintley, Helen L.; Bell, Alexander; Ashworth, Rachel – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Evidence shows that biomedical knowledge is more effectively taught within the medical curriculum by teaching in context, to facilitate learning transfer. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of combining high-technology simulation and physiology teaching on medical student learning and experience. First-year medical…

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…

Zhang, Xiao-Min; Yu, Jian-Yun; Yang, Yuan; Feng, Cui-Peng; Lyu, Jing; Xu, Shi-Lian – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A small private online course (SPOC) supports blended learning on a small scale, enabling students to have a more comprehensive and deeper learning experience. It also provides instructors with a flexible and feasible model to better understand the students' learning needs and to supervise students' learning behaviors. In this study, we adopted…

Olson, Jay; Rinehart, Jim; Spiegel, Jacqueline Jordan; Al-Nakkash, Layla – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A variety of medical simulators have been developed over recent years for students of all medical professions. These simulators serve to teach basic science concepts, advanced clinical skills, as well as empathy and student confidence. This study aimed to understand the students' perception of the integration of high-fidelity simulation exercises…
