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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Teixeira, André L.; Samora, Milena; Vianna, Lauro C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The cardiovascular responses to exercise are mediated by several interactive neural mechanisms, including central command, arterial baroreflex, and skeletal muscle mechano- and metaboreflex. In humans, muscle metaboreflex activation can be isolated via postexercise ischemia (PEI), which increases sympathetic nerve activity and partially maintains…

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…

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…

Luchi, Kelly Cristina Gavião; Cardozo, Lais Tono; Marcondes, Fernanda Klein – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The aim of this work is to describe the "Muscular System Game," created to assist in the teaching-learning process concerning the physiology of the muscular system, and to evaluate its effect on the learning of university students. Participating in this study were first-year undergraduate students of the pharmacy course (game group, n =…
