How to shape your marketing strategies with quality content

Student exam performance question
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can point me to specific references on test performance and/or test anxiety when students take a test where questions are of a new style or written by a new professor? I am currently in a group where three instructors teach three different sections of A and P but write a final together to give to all students. The students across sections have struggled with and expressed frustration with questions written by the other instructors. Id like to see what data there is o

How to bring different types of learning styles in the classroom?
Just like students, teachers also come with varying teaching styles that define their personalities, communication style and preferences in the classroom. Commonly, teachers use audios, videos, recordings, word, or even animations to expel the subject material. Besides that, students are also allowed to use their own preference through their own tablets. Some learners can be seen making text-induced photo essays where they blended pictures with descriptions or drawing their experience through co

Is there a webinar or podcast describing LifesciTRC?
Is there a webinar or podcast describing LifesciTRC? I couldn't find one in the collection.  It would be great to have so I can share with colleagues.

Undergraduate Physiology
Hi, I am Nuran Kumbaraci, an Associate Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology in NJ teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in physiology and biology.  Over the years, I have noticed that the textbooks are including more detail and many resources are easily available to students on the web.  However, as educators we have to engage the students and focus on key points in class and labs.  Last year I participated in the V&C program and found valuable resources.  I

Case Studies in the Classroom
My name is Julie Dais and I teach introductory biology, as well as  anatomy and physiology and pathophysiology (to nursing students) at Okanagan College in British Columbia.  There are many great case studies that can be used in the classroom associated with LifeSciTRC, but I'd love to see more related to botany!  Please reply with any ideas that you may have because I am sure I am not the only educator looking for this.

Hi - I'm Shari Litch Gray and I'm on the faculty of Regis College in the Department of Biology.  I am a physiologist by training so I teach primarily animal physiology for bio-majors and A&P for allied health majors but I occasionally teach general biology.  I am glad to see a resource srchive focused on biology related topics.  I look forward to searching and sharing.

Undergraduate Instructor for Pre-Allied Health
Hi,      I am a teacher at a community college in Amarillo, TX. I have been teaching A&P and Micro for about 7 years now. I have currently taken over the Life Science classes for Non-Science Majors. I am just hoping to get some good ideas about how to better engage my students and make my classes more relevent to my students lives. The non-science students seem to be giving me a whole new level of difficulty. They have very little in the way of a scientific scaffold on w
