Shoulders and Birth

2.5 minutes

In the story of the human body we tell in our A&P course, we may emphasize the practical issues of squeezing the large head of the fetus through the birth canal during labor and delivery. And we may mention the wide shoulders, too. A new study shows that human shoulder development is delayed (compared to other primates) until after birth. Wow.

“Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.” (Anne Lamott)

Birding For Tissues

22 minutes

One approach to making histology more interesting—and perhaps easier—is to share  and teach our expert eye. As when learning to identify animals such as birds from an expert.

Should We Extend Deadlines? | Models & Color Codes | TAPP 112

 

In this episode, host Kevin Patton asks, how do we handle the trepidation we experience when we are flooded with uncertainty after an intense learning experience? Some thoughts about being upfront about using models, analogies, and color codes in science. And we explore that difficult question: should we extend deadlines for students when they ask?

“The process of leniency involves accepting the reality of the current situation and finding a satisfying meaning therein, as opposed to misconstruing or denying the facts of the situation.” (Sandra L. Schneider)

 

Trepidation After New Learning

You know that feeling of trepidation we get after a conference, course, or other intense learning experience? Where we feel uncertainty about whether we'll ever be able to retrieve it again and apply it. No worries. Let's talk that through.

Transparency About Models, Analogies, and Color Codes

18 minutes

As experts in science, we are already comfortable using models, analogies, and color codes. But some of our students may not have that familiarity and comfort. Maybe transparency about these tools at the beginning of the A&P course can help students get traction in our course.

Million Dollar Words Explained

9 minutes

Our A&P students can use those "million-dollar words" they learn from us (such as adrenocorticotropic hormone or carbaminohemoglobin) to impress their friends and family. But, more importantly, the nutrition concepts they learn from this book can help our students, as well as others in their lives.
