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…

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…

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…

Goodhead, Lauren K.; MacMillan, Frances M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The authors have experienced increasing demand from undergraduate students, particularly those in the early years of study, to be able to access more "test-style" material to help with revision, as well as guidance on how to approach their university assessments. With increased use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in university…

De Paleville, Daniela Terson – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this outreach program was to promote elementary school students' understanding of human physiology and exercise science. I conducted this outreach event for 421 pre-kindergarten through grade 5 students attending a Spanish-immersion elementary school within a large, urban public school district in Kentucky. To meet the needs of the…

Williams, Mark T.; Lluka, Lesley J.; Meyer, Jan H. F.; Chunduri, Prasad – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
An accurate self-assessment of student work can enhance student learning and subsequently improve academic performance. Instructors can facilitate this process by providing "standards" that students can utilize as feedback when self-evaluating their understanding. Traditional forms of feedback, such as marked assessment tasks, are…

Medler, Scott – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Frogs are routinely used in physiology teaching laboratories to demonstrate important physiological processes. There have been recent directives that promote the use of the anesthetic MS-222 (tricaine methanesulfonate), rather than lowering body temperature with a cold water bath to prepare reptiles and amphibians for physiological experiments or…

Cooper, Katelyn M.; Gin, Logan E.; Brownell, Sara E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Increasingly, institutions of higher education are adopting fully online degree programs to provide students with cost-effective, accessible postsecondary education. A concern these degrees raise is: Will students be prepared for the next step of their career paths after completing their Bachelor's degree online? Biology undergraduates often begin…

Upson-Taboas, Charity F.; Montoya, Ruben; O'Loughlin, Valerie Dean – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
An understanding of human embryology is essential for students to better understand the subjects of human anatomy and physiology. However, human embryology is a challenging subject for many, since they must learn how anatomic structures and physiological processes develop over a period of time. Embryology texts typically use static,…

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…

Langdon, Jody; Botnaru, Diana T.; Wittenberg, Megan; Riggs, Amy Jo; Mutchler, Jessica; Syno, Matthew; Caciula, Manuela C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different metacognitive interventions on knowledge and regulation of cognition, as well as academic performance (i.e., exam and final grades) in three sections of an undergraduate human anatomy and physiology course. All targeted classes were randomly assigned to one of three groups…
