1 | HAPS 2018 Annual Conference
I encourage all anatomy and/or physiology instructors to attend the 2018 Annual Conference of the Human Anatomy and Physiology in Columbus OH. Besides update speakers, vendors, and workshops, it’s a great opportunity to network with a friendly and welcoming bunch of teachers just like you!
2 | Update on High Blood Pressure
I summarize a few key points from the new 2017 guidelines on hypertension and their impact on how we talk about blood pressure in our A&P course.
- Got High Blood Pressure Covered? The 2017 Hypertension Guidelines.
- What we need to know for teaching A&P.
- Link to the full report. And many more related links.
- Free slide to use in your course.
- Brief video interview of report authors, giving pithy highlights.
3 | Testing As a Teaching Strategy
A previous topic, spaced retrieval practice (Episode 1), is the basis for a new discussion of Kevin’s experience using online tests to provide students with regular and required spaced retrieval practice. Each of these links includes additional details of Kevin’s case study.
