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…

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…

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…

Lertwilaiwittaya, Pongtawat; Sitticharoon, Chantacha; Maikaew, Pailin; Keadkraichaiwat, Issarawan – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The National License Examination step 1 (NLE1), which tests basic medical sciences knowledge in Thailand, is considered to be tough and stressful for medical students due to the large amount of content. This study aimed to determine factors influencing the NLE1 score (NLE1S). The NLE1S, academic achievement, and class attendance were obtained…

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…

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…
