  1. Technological Improvement of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Courses at the University of Memphis Charles J. Biggers Technology Fellowship Program Project

  2. Goal Statement To improve the teaching technology in the human anatomy and physiology courses at the University of Memphis.

  3. Project Context and Rationale • I have selected this goal to improve the technology in A&P since the demand for the course has become so great. • The class size has risen over the past two years from 119 to 350.

  4. Project Context and Rationale -- Continued • The students in A&P are usually undergraduates who want to become career medical professionals. The course is required for nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, and others.

  5. The major thrust of the project is to improve the technology of instruction in order to better communicate the content of the course effectively. My objective was to attempt a number of different approaches to improve the technology of instruction. The following are some of the techniques that I was able to use. Action Plan

  6. Action Plan 1 • Instead of using tape recordings of the lectures and placing them on reserve in the library, I would like to use digital recordings and make the recordings available for students on WebCT.

  7. Results of Action Plan 1

  8. Action Plan 2 • Experiment with video recordings to show students different techniques and different technical instruments which cannot be taken to the classroom (i.e. electron microscopy, electrophoresis, etc).

  9. Results of Action Plan 2

  10. Action Plan 3 • Investigate the feasibility of placing my lecture notes and transparencies on WebCT for ease of copying by my students.

  11. Results of Action Plan 3

  12. Action Plan 4 • Add some of the different components that are available such as Study Mate.

  13. Results of Action Plan 4

  14. Results of Action Plan 4

  15. Action Plan 5 • Add some of the different components that are available on WebCT such as Home Pages for students.

  16. Results of Action Plan 5 • I want to add some of the different components that are available on WebCT such as Home Pages for students.

  17. Results of Action Plan 5

  18. Results Action Plan 1 – The digital recordings have been very successful as pointed out by student comments. Action Plan 2 – The video clips have not been inserted into WebCT yet, but the mechanics of using videos has been successful. Action Plan 3 – The use of a pdf file for the lecture notes is very successful and much less expensive for the student than using the copy center.

  19. Results - continued Action Plan 4 – The success of Study Mate has not been adequately determined since it has been implemented for only one week. But, the students that have seen it appear to appreciate it as a useful tool for study. Action Plan 5 – The Home Pages have provided a personal touch enabling students and professor to become acquainted. A number of study groups have been formed as a result of the Home Pages.

  20. Statistical Results

  21. Discussion • A student questionnaire will provide student input at the time of the Final Exam. • An earlier questionnaire would be beneficial to make possible improvements as the course progresses. • Several more professional movie clips will be added to the course in the future.
