Community Forums - Physiology Educator Community of Practice (PECOP) - Thinking of a new way to teach human physiology

A discussion forum for physiology educators at all levels. If you would like to contribute to the forums or to change your subscription, please log in to the left.

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 Circulatory System, Valves of the heart would fall under the physics umbrella, Heart rate control with the ANS, Ca++ pumps in the SR for Energy, etc. Am I crazy? What have I missed? Also, if anyone is interested in collaborating on a course set up this way, please contact me.  Thanks!

Hi Monica,

First off, there are real people out here, not just the spam bots. I'm reaching out to the APS Education office to let them know that this is starting to be a problem again.

The first place I'd suggest you look as you develop this idea is Core Concepts of Physiology. I've attached the PDF version here, but you can also find it directly available from the APS. It might give you some ideas into how they have broken down the wide field of physiology and what else you might include in your organization scheme.

Cheers,

Ryan

It took me a minute to realize the irony of commenting on the proliferation of the spam bots on the forum and then offer you a PDF file to download. Feel free to reach out to me through the .edu email I have listed on my profile. You can also download the book directly from the APS, or you might be able to get it from Springer using your institutional access.

Cheers,

R

That is considered one of the most problematic process because to find the best fo the best University is not an easy task andyou have to ask him about the strategies he will makw to make for University to make it the best place for personalstatementwriter.com so the students can learn some thing to become something.

How is this thing even going to get us when we are with resumes planet reviews? I think that this is because there is so much going on here that there is nothing more for them to ask us.
