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…

Kauffman, Christine A.; Derazin, Megan; Asmar, Abdo; Kibble, Jonathan D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Historically, attendance has been a marker of academic performance, but the current medical education literature has had mixed results. In addition, attendance is dropping in the preclinical curricula, whereas, at the same time, the focus on United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1 performance is increasing. This present study is a…

del Mar Quiroga, Maria; Choate, Julia K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Physiology is commonly taught through direct experience and observation of scientific phenomena in "hands-on" practical laboratory classes. The value of such classes is limited by students' lack of understanding of the underlying theoretical concepts and their lack of confidence with the experimental techniques. In our experience,…

Durand, Marina de Toledo; Restini, Carolina Baraldi Araujo; Wolff, Amora C. D.; Faria, Milton, Jr.; Couto, Lucélio Bernardes; Bestetti, Reinaldo Bulgarelli – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Over the years, much criticism against animal use for physiology teaching has been made. Hence, replacement by suitable alternatives has increased in several pedagogical approaches. This study examined students' perceptions of animal versus virtual (video/computer) laboratory classes in physiological sciences associated with the effectiveness of…

Muthukrishnan, Suriya Prakash; Chandran, Dinu S.; Afreen, Naaz; Bir, Megha; Dastidar, Shaon Ghosh; Jayappa, Harsith; Mattoo, Bhawna; Navneet, Arvind; Poorasamy, Jeevitha; Roy, Atanu; Sharma, Anju; Ghosh, Debabrata; Deepak, Kishore K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Didactic lecture is an effective method to quickly pass on a high volume of information to a large number of students. However, if not well designed, lectures can be monotonous and provide only passive learning, with little scope for higher order learning skills. To address this drawback of lectures, we supplemented it with case-based learning…

De Lira, Claudio Andre Barbosa; Viana, Ricardo Borges; Luz, Nina Franco; De Santana, Marcos Gonçalves; Campos, Mário Hebling; Vancini, Rodrigo Luiz; Andrade, Marília Santos – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The textbook is a pedagogical tool that provides students and professionals with scientific information. As exercise is an important strategy for the prevention and treatment of noncommunicable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and arterial hypertension, the presence of correct and up-to-date scientific information in exercise…

Soares, Gabriela M.; Zangerolamo, Lucas; Rosa, Lucas R. O.; Branco, Renato C. S.; Carneiro, Everardo M.; Barbosa-Sampaio, Helena Cristina – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Obesity and diabetes are two of the biggest public health problems in the modern world. One possible way to combat the rising prevalence of these diseases is through the spread of awareness about its consequences and how to prevent them. Therefore, educational interventions focused on teaching the physiological basis of these conditions might be…

Dirks-Naylor, Amie J.; Cook, Corbin; Nhean, Pov – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Pharmacy school applications have steadily declined over the past several years. Thus pharmacy schools are not only searching for effective means to increase enrollment of qualified candidates, but are also focusing on the development of programs to improve academic performance and retention of enrolled students. To address the needs of struggling…

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…

Mullins, Nicole M.; Michaliszyn, Sara F.; Kelly-Miller, Natalie; Groll, Leanne – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Current physical activity (PA) guidelines recommend that children accumulate at least 60 min of PA each day, and that adults should collaborate across sectors to increase opportunities for PA. Implementing brief classroom PA breaks (CPABs) is one way to help increase daily PA. The primary purpose of this study was to determine perceptions of a…

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…

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 =…

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,…
