Tauck, David L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2006
Most undergraduates lack the scientific background to read and appreciate much of the primary literature in physiology. Even when the underlying concepts are elegantly simple, the inherent complexity of contemporary papers often makes the work inaccessible to them. However, with a little help, they can be guided to an understanding of the creative…

Michael, Joel – Advances in Physiology Education, 2006
Calls for reforms in the ways we teach science at all levels, and in all disciplines, are wide spread. The effectiveness of the changes being called for, employment of student-centered, active learning pedagogy, is now well supported by evidence. The relevant data have come from a number of different disciplines that include the learning sciences,…

Cliff, William H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2006
Most students enter the physiology classroom with one or more fundamental misconceptions about respiratory physiology. This study examined the prevalence of four respiratory misconceptions and determined the role of case analysis in the remediation of one of them. A case study was used to help students learn about oxygen transport in the blood and…

Krans, Jacob; Gilbert, Cole; Hoy, Ron – Advances in Physiology Education, 2006
In this article, we detail how to produce two inexpensive micromanipulators that offer high precision (approximately 25 micrometers) along a single axis of movement. The more expensive of the designs provides improved versatility along multiple axes. Both manipulators offer substantial savings over commercially available micromanipulators with…

Abdulkader, Fernando; Azevedo-Martins, Anna Karenina; de Arcisio Miranda, Manoel; Brunaldi, Kellen – Advances in Physiology Education, 2005
An important challenge for both students and teachers of physiology is to integrate the differentareas in which physiological knowledge is didactically divided. In developing countries, such an issue is even more demanding, because budget restrictions often affect the physiology program with laboratory classes being the first on the list when it…

Sweeney, Lauren J.; Brodfuehrer, Peter D.; Raughley, Beth L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2004
One important goal of introductory biology laboratory experiences is to engage students directly in all steps in the process of scientific discovery. Even when laboratory experiences are built on principles discussed in the classroom, students often do not adequately apply this background to interpretation of results they obtain in lab. This…

Richardson, Daniel; Birge, Barbara – Advances in Physiology Education, 1995
Describes a project designed to introduce andragogical methods into elementary physiology courses, and to compare student perceptions and learning outcomes with those of a separate section of the same course taught by pedagogical principles. Results indicated that students preferred the combined pedagogical and andragogical approach over the…

Tallitsch, Robert B. – Advances in Physiology Education, 1996
Physiology programs must continue to prepare graduate students for research postdoctoral positions. They should also prepare them for employment at smaller institutions that have higher teaching demands and that encourage-but do not require-research. Suggests changes in the way Ph.D. candidates are taught and in the way professors mentor students…

Modell, Harold I. – Advances in Physiology Education, 1996
Describes four exercises designed to help students form appropriate course expectations, recognize the need for seeking clarification when communicating, recognize the role of personal experience in building mental models, and become familiar with study aids for building formal models. Directs students' attention to a number of issues that impact…

Richardson, Daniel – Advances in Physiology Education, 1997
Compares student perceptions and learning outcomes of computer-assisted instruction with those of traditional didactic lectures. Class representatives indicated that students did not perceive computer instruction as being time effective. However, exam scores from computer laboratory questions were significantly higher than those from either…

Rangachari, P. K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2000
Describes a problem-based course in which students in an interdisciplinary program explored the manufacture of biological knowledge. Discusses how students gained an appreciation of the complex interactions between ideals, individuals, institutions, and investments that comprise modern biological research through study of a variety of problems and…
