Kumar, Vishnu P.; Zuercher, Jennifer; Gopalan, Chaya – HAPS Educator, 2020
Possessing awareness about the human body is important for the maintenance of good health. To increase such awareness in children's daily lives, we developed and implemented a two-hour activity session for a group of nine Cub Scouts. Three graduate students, one undergraduate student, and one high school student assisted faculty during this…

Djerdjian, Nancy Traiser; Magner, Shawn; Jensen, Murray; Hyson, Rose; Lawford, Heather; Hull, Kerry – HAPS Educator, 2020
One strategy to transform the high attrition rates among community college (CC) students is for CC instructors to utilize the teaching practices shown to most likely lead to student success. CC students and faculty are underrepresented in biology education research (BER), with only 3% of BER articles addressing CC-specific issues (Schinske et al.…

Jensen, Murray; Hull, Kerry; Hood, Suzanne; Lawford, Heather; Ross, Kyla; Gerrits, Ron; Ott, Betsy – HAPS Educator, 2020
Evidence Based Instructional Practices (EBIPs) have been shown to increase student engagement in college classrooms. Education research conducted to date on the effectiveness of these EBIPs and their impact on students' has largely focused on four-year and research-intensive institutions, and community colleges represent a significant gap in the…

Farr, Melaney Birdsong; Lawford, Heather; Hull, Kerry; Stowe, Skye; Jensen, Murray; Ross, Kyla Turpin – HAPS Educator, 2020
Pre-clinical community college students represent a unique population with varied academic backgrounds and levels of preparedness. Addressing the needs of this population is important for issues of access, equity, and diversity in higher education. As part of a larger National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Community College Anatomy and…

Rompolski, Krista; Dallaire, Mackenzie – HAPS Educator, 2020
Near-peer teaching, in which students one or more years removed from a student within the same academic program, is utilized broadly in medical school curricula and increasingly in undergraduate anatomy and physiology courses. While the literature on near-peer teaching suggests that the practice is overwhelmingly positive, it is primarily from…

Hebert, Amy K.; Guenther, Merrilee F. – HAPS Educator, 2020
Human Anatomy and Physiology I is a rigorous course where developing strong study habits poses a challenge that many students have difficulty overcoming. In an attempt to help students better prepare for exams and improve their overall performance, we introduced incentives for participating in study groups. Here we examine the possible impact…

Lujan, Heidi L.; LaFrance, Nicole C.; Petersen, Shelby A.; DiCarlo, Stephen E. – HAPS Educator, 2020
This article describes a simple and inexpensive "shock and awe" classroom demonstration for understanding the importance of carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]) in acid-base regulation. Before class, a solution was prepared by adding sodium bicarbonate and universal indicator solution to a sample of distilled water contained in a standard…

Crowther, Gregory J.; Wiggins, Benjamin L.; Jenkins, Lekelia D. – HAPS Educator, 2020
Many undergraduate biology instructors incorporate active learning exercises into their lessons while continuing to assess students with traditional exams. To better align practice and exams, we present an approach to question-asking that emphasizes templates instead of specific questions. Students and instructors can use these Test Question…

Britson, Carol A. – HAPS Educator, 2020
Providing word banks for human anatomy and physiology lab practicals is uncommon because instructors want to avoid cueing effects, but there is little published data on their effects on student performance. In the 2016-2017 academic year, word banks were not provided for students taking lab practicals in Anatomy and Physiology I and II while in…

Behrendt, Marc; Foster, Jodie; Machtmes, Krisanna – HAPS Educator, 2020
Many university students begin the pre-nursing anatomy and physiology course unprepared for the pace and intensity. In a voluntary writing activity on the last day of the two-semester anatomy and physiology class, students were asked to write a letter to the next year's students to offer advice on how to pass the course, no further direction or…

Reuter, Peter – HAPS Educator, 2020
Practice exams are a proven tool to increase retrieval of information long-term. Over a three-year period, students in Anatomy and Physiology I and II were offered practice exams as either no-stakes practice exams (years 1-2) and low-stakes practice exams (year 3). Students who took practice exams did significantly better on the actual lecture…

Beck, Edward J.; Roosa, Kristen A. – HAPS Educator, 2020
While there are many strategies for increasing the inclusiveness of anatomy and physiology courses, increasing course structure is a strategy that can not only close achievement gaps for first generation and underrepresented minority students, but also increase performance for all students. High structure courses are characterized by clear…

Adams, Jason S.; Nelson, Heidi M.; Strong, Eric; Wisco, Jonathan J.; Klappa, Susan G. – HAPS Educator, 2020
This paper analyzes the lived experience of Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students participating in the service-learning program, Anatomy Academy. To understand this experience, we performed a phenomenological analysis using the reflections of 31 DPT students as they participated as Mentors to 5th grade elementary students. Mentors used active…

Price, Travis M. – HAPS Educator, 2020
The rising costs of college tuition, housing, and textbooks can be a barrier to many who seek a certification or degree in a health profession field. Affordable open educational resources (AOER) are an attractive alternative to expensive course materials. The Health Sciences Department at Weber State University created a comprehensive, two…

Roychowdhury, Hiranya S.; Gerrits, Ron; Hull, Kerry; Stowe, Skye; Jensen, Murray – HAPS Educator, 2020
In this pilot study, students in Anatomy and Physiology courses at a Southwest US Community College were assigned to groups with the instruction that they must meet outside of class time to work on course assignments throughout the semester. The assignments included exam preparation questions and case studies, but the groups could use their out of…
