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,…

Harrison-Bernard, Lisa M.; Naljayan, Mihran V.; Mercante, Donald E.; Gunaldo, Tina Patel; Edwards, Scott – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The primary purpose of conducting two interprofessional education (IPE) experiences during a multidisciplinary physiology graduate-level course was to provide basic science, physical therapy, and physician assistant graduate students opportunities to work as a team in the diagnosis, treatment, and collaborative care when presented with a patient…

De Oliveira, Gislaine Alves; Ferreira, Maria Beatriz Cardoso; Nunes, Luciana Neves; Ribeiro, Maria Flavia Marques – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Historically, Brazilian higher education teachers' pedagogical training has not been a concern. Even today, a graduate degree is the main requirement to be a faculty member. However, a set of competencies is necessary to teach: pedagogical competency, political competency, and knowledge of specific content. Most graduate training covers only…

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…

Remmele, Martin; Martens, Andreas – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Sculpting representations of human organs out of modeling clay is an acknowledged method of teaching anatomical structures. Because of its potential to provide detailed spatial information, stereoscopic imagery can be understood to function as a suitable template for such sculpting tasks. Currently, it is unknown whether the advantages of…

Sinnayah, Puspha; Rathner, Joseph A.; Loton, Daniel; Klein, Rudi; Hartley, Peter – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Bioscience is a foundational unit (subject) of undergraduate allied health degree programs, providing students the scientific basis underpinning their clinical practice. However, despite its significance, bioscience is a difficult academic hurdle for many students to master. The introduction of active learning strategies, including small…

Cerchiara, Jack A.; Kim, Kerry J.; Meir, Eli; Wenderoth, Mary Pat; Doherty, Jennifer H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The basis for understanding neurophysiology is understanding ion movement across cell membranes. Students in introductory courses recognize ion concentration gradients as a driving force for ion movement but struggle to simultaneously account for electrical charge gradients. We developed a 17-multiple-choice item assessment of students'…

Clarke, Martina A.; Sharma, Neeru M.; Schiller, Alicia M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Scientific advocacy and outreach programs are encouraged to increase public understanding of scientific knowledge and generate interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. However, evaluation of these events' effectiveness is difficult and somewhat rare. This study's purpose was to better understand how effective…

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…

Kay, Denise; Pasarica, Magdalena – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Faculty dissatisfaction with diminishing levels of student engagement in lifestyle medicine sessions prompted this exploratory project that compared differences in students' substantive engagement in medical preclinical and clinical level lifestyle medicine sessions. The preclinical and clinical level sessions had the same learning objectives and…

Vashe, Asha; Devi, Vasudha; Rao, Raghavendra; Abraham, Reem Rachel; Pallath, Vinod; Umakanth, Shashikiran – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Today most education institutions around the world have adopted the philosophy of outcome-based education. The emphasis in outcome-based education is achievement of outcomes; hence the curriculum should be designed in a way that it includes the components targeted specifically at achieving these outcomes. A discipline-based approach results in…

Woodley, Sarah K.; Freeman, Peter E.; Ricketts, Tiffany D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
To better prepare physiology students for 21st century careers, we incorporated classroom-based undergraduate research experiences and service learning/community-engaged learning (SLCE) into a college-level physiology laboratory course. The interventions were incorporated over 4 yr and assessed using validated surveys of student-reported learning…

Faggioni, Thaís; Ferreira, Natiele Carla da Silva; Lopes, Renato Matos; Fidalgo-Neto, Antonio Augusto; Cotta-de-Almeida, Vinicius; Alves, Luiz Anastacio – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The use of computers as a pedagogical resource is currently on the rise. In the case of immunology, students present difficulties in visualizing molecular phenomena. Thus the use of animations and simulations available on the internet might facilitate the learning of complex immunological concepts. In this context, it is important to map and…

Slominski, Tara; Grindberg, Sarah; Momsen, Jennifer – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) has long been recognized as a difficult course. A 2007 study (Michael J. "Adv Physiol Educ" 31: 34-40, 2007) sought to better understand this difficulty by asking faculty for their perceptions of why students struggle to learn in HAP. Later research built on these findings by investigating why students…

Johnson, Shereé M.; Owens, Tamara L.; O'Neil, Jahn N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Although human patient simulation (HPS) began more than a decade ago, substantial evidence argues for increased use of simulation in teaching basic science courses, such as physiology and the full integration of simulation into medical school curricula so as to benefit both educators and learners. The introduction and application of simulation in…
