Reuter, Peter; Sillevis, Rob; Weiss, Valerie – HAPS Educator, 2021
Brief periods of wakeful resting have a positive effect on memory consolidation. To test the impact of mindful breathing exercises on the retention of new knowledge in a science class, we assigned lab sessions of Anatomy and Physiology I and II randomly to the intervention group or control group. During teaching periods, the intervention group lab…

Liu, He; Vagula, Mary – HAPS Educator, 2021
In this study, we analyzed data of heart rate and pulse amplitude collected by undergraduate students in a physiology lab course during and after the diving reflex. On average, heart rate was reduced 21% at 15 seconds and 29% at 30 seconds during diving. Pulse amplitude generally decreased but with greater individual variation. There is no…

Pekary, M. M.; Jellyman, J. K.; Giang, M. T.; Beardsley, P. M. – HAPS Educator, 2021
Human physiology is a foundational course for future health practitioners. Previous research suggests case studies may improve students' critical thinking and comprehension, but little is known about how case studies affect student interest, motivation, and belonging. The current quasi-experiment investigates the impact of integrating case studies…

Soon, Zoë; Lauridsen, Megan – HAPS Educator, 2021
It is hypothesized that creating case studies that are visually and kinesthetically interactive will encourage experiential and active learning, as well as enhance student engagement and a sense of enjoyment in learning. The case studies in this study were designed to incorporate reading, visual imagery, as well as auditory and hands-on activities…

Huisman, Michael C.; Valster, Katelin Michelle – HAPS Educator, 2021
The incorporation of mobile learning methods (iLearning) into human anatomy and physiology classrooms has been debated with regard to its effectiveness in higher education. This study aimed to understand how iLearning affects college-aged students' perception of learning and engagement in an introductory human anatomy and physiology course using a…

Gopalan, Chaya; Nguyen, Nhan; Kist, William – HAPS Educator, 2021
Ehrlichiosis ("Ehrlichia chaffeensis"), a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks, and its complications are examined here in a case-based learning approach. This case scenario describes a person who was bitten by a tick while farming and the complications they experienced. Students are presented with a patient case scenario that…

Keller, Karen L.; Hughes, Franklin P. – HAPS Educator, 2021
Students from a variety of majors take human anatomy and physiology courses--usually because they are required for their program of study. Many students find anatomy and physiology classes academically challenging and institutions across the country report high failure and withdrawal rates for these courses. Although research has shown that…

Welleford, Andrew S.; Weaver, Lauren M.; Platt, Kristen M. – HAPS Educator, 2021
Engagement of multiple learning modalities has been shown to promote learning. This study aimed to develop resources for anatomical sciences educators interested in adding additional teaching modalities into their repertoire. Three review sessions were created for the muscle anatomy unit of an undergraduate anatomy and physiology course, each…

Carnegie, Jacqueline; Savory, Joanne – HAPS Educator, 2021
A challenge with large undergraduate classes is the provision of opportunities for students to construct educational documents and to obtain individualized feedback pertaining to their work. Being able to work as part of a group, to clearly express information both orally and in writing, and to self-reflect while providing constructive feedback…

Hebert, Amy K.; O'Donnell, Courtney – HAPS Educator, 2020
Recently there has been a push for more student-centered learning in the undergraduate classroom as a way to enhance student learning outcomes. One tool utilized in many Anatomy and Physiology courses is case studies of the material being presented. These allow students to apply their knowledge to a real-world scenario they may encounter in their…

Baptista, Vander – HAPS Educator, 2020
Renal clearance encompasses a somewhat abstract concept, which makes it a hard-to-visualize phenomenon. It is a confusing topic for students and a difficult task for the instructor to teach. In order to improve or facilitate the teaching-learning process of renal clearance, an alternative strategy is presented here. To properly characterize the…
