1 | New Blood Test for TBI
The FDA recently approved a new blood test for concussions. How is the test used and what does it tell us? Kevin explains exactly which proteins are detected and how they get into the blood during concussion. A&P instructors are now equipped to answer student questions and to apply current clinical issues to core concepts of A&P.

4 | Give Your Course a Half Flip With a Full Twist
Kevin flipped his first A&P course in 2006, a year before the term flipped learning was first coined by Bergmann and Sams. In this segment, he discusses how he produced narrated slide presentations for student learning prior to lecture classes. Time in class can then be better spent on wrestling with deeper learning and problem solving. This case study may help you decide how to flip (or half flip) your own A&P course.
