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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Washburn, Shannon E.; Stewart, Randolph H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Blood flow through the cardiovascular system is governed by the same physical rules that govern the flow of water through domestic plumbing. Using this analogy in a teaching laboratory, a model of the cardiovascular system constructed of pumps and pipes was used to demonstrate the basic interactions of pressure, flow, and resistance in a regulated…

Memon, Ismail; Alkushi, Abdulmohsen; Shewar, Dur E.; Anjum, Irfan; Feroz, Zeeshan – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Many medical schools offer pre-professional programs to undergraduate students. The main purpose of the university pre-professional program (UPPP) is to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills required to successfully cope with the academic demands of further education provided by professional colleges. The aim of this commentary…

St. James, Andrew R.; Campbell, Darlene – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Generating an increasingly skilled and numerous workforces of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals is a national priority. Central to this goal is improving the ability of STEM graduates to apply scientific inquiry within oral communication, a necessary skill for STEM professionals. In this case study of an…

Cardozo, Lais Tono; Castro, Amicio Pina; Guimarães, Alexsandro Ferreira; Gutierrez, Lucila Ludmila Paula; Montrezor, Luís Henrique; Marcondes, Fernanda Klein – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
This work describes the educational game "Integrating Synapse, Muscle Contraction, and Autonomic Nervous System," which was developed to assist students in understanding and integrating concepts related to the physiology of synapses, muscle contraction, and the autonomic nervous system. Analysis was made of the effect of the game on…

Gopalan, Chaya – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Flipped teaching (FT) has caught educators' attention due to its success in engaging students through pre- and in-class activities. To learn if FT improved student performance, scores from the quizzes and exams of a fully flipped classroom with retrieval exercises were compared with those of five semesters of traditional lecture-based [unflipped…

Semsar, Katharine; Brownell, Sara; Couch, Brian A.; Crowe, Alison J.; Smith, Michelle K.; Summers, Mindi M.; Wright, Christian D.; Knight, Jennifer K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
We describe the development of a new, freely available, online, programmatic-level assessment tool, Measuring Achievement and Progress in Science in Physiology, or Phys-MAPS (http://cperl.lassp.cornell.edu/bio-maps). Aligned with the conceptual frameworks of Core Principles of Physiology, and Vision and Change Core Concepts, Phys-MAPS can be used…

Versteeg, Marjolein; Wijnen-Meijer, Marjo; Steendijk, Paul – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Misconceptions about physiology are a major threat to accurate scientific and clinical reasoning in medical education. Awareness is often mentioned as a prerequisite to achieve conceptual understanding; however, students are frequently unaware of their incorrect understanding. We explored the multitier approach as a tool to obtain insight into…
