Thinking of a new way to teach human physiology
Hi PECOP Colleagues, My name is Monica McCullough and I teach an intro level of human physiology at Western Michigan University. In an effort to help my students retain information in this course I have thought about taking concepts and tucking them under 5 major umbrellas for physiology. While I teach the systems separately, I will color code each system and place them with these "umbrellas": Homeostasis, Energy, Physics, Chemistry and Autonomic Nervous System. For example, with the Circu

good teaching resource in Respiratory Physiology
Hello, I have requested a guest speaker to discuss Respiratory Physiology (Mechanics of Breathing and Gas Exchange and Transport). Unfortunately, the guest speaker will unable to do it.

Need advice on clickers
Hi everyone ... My institution just told us that we are now dropping the "clickers" because of the cost-structure changes that "Turning point" (the company that makes our clickers) is adopting.  Does anyone have a good alternative to clickers that does not require the use of a smart phone or laptop?  Ideally, I would love a tablet-based solution, so we could get alphanumeric and even drawings, but that is not internet/wifi connected (to avoid the distractions of students using the tabl
