Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks. (Stephen Hawking)

 

What's a Chatbot and Why Should I Care?

8 minutes

ChatGPT is a very hot topic of conversation among anatomy and physiology faculty. It's a chatbot. But was IS a chatbot? The use of chatbots by students can be concerning regarding learning and academic integrity. Why is that? Are we in an arms race?

But mainly it's to give me a break for self-care over the holiday season. We'll be back to our regular programming in late January.

 

Storytelling is the Heart of Teaching

14.5 minutes

Kevin explains why he thinks storytelling is the heart of effective teaching, especially in the A&P course. He outlines the "storytelling persona"; making sure there is a beginning, middle, and end to our stories, applying storytelling to both lectures and the entire course, using drama, conflict and resolution, and other techniques.

Strategies for Learning the Skeleton

9 minutes

Learning the bones and bone markings of the skeleton can be an early, scary experience for A&P students. How can we prepare and support our students to learn the skeleton effectively—and learn skills to help them in their continuing studies of human anatomy? This is the first half of a popular segment from a classic episode.

★ This segment was first heard in Nine Super Strategies for Teaching the Skeleton | Episode 10

Bone Names (Kevin's tip page for A&P students; located in the Lion Den website)

★ ★ Short URL (to provide to students) is my-ap.us/bones

★ ★ Provides a brief intro to bone naming and how that helps a student learn bones and markings

★ ★ Provides 2 videos that walk students through the process of understanding bone names as a method of learning

★★ Contains highlighted links to helpful lists

★ ★ ★ Lists are available as a docx or PDF "handouts" to use for study

★ ★ Lists are also available as an interactive table on the web (can be sorted)

★ ★ ★ ★ Access to lists requires a free registration in the Lion Den website

Winter Short: Mitochondria, Platelets, Golgi, & Green Pens TAPP 127


Episode 127 is one of our winter shorts, where I replay interesting segments from previous episodes. In this one, you'll hear about the role of platelets in immunity, how the Golgi apparatus gets its weird shape, exactly how hot mitochondria get, and why we may want to consider marking assignments and tests with a green pen, rather than a red one.

Guess what? this is one of our winter shorts! Yep, that's right, it's a shorter-than-usual episode in which I present one or two, or maybe three or four, classic, evergreen segments from previous episodes that are remastered, reconstituted, and recycled for your listening and learning pleasure. But mainly it's to give me a break for self-care over the holiday season. We'll be back to our regular programming in late January.

 

Mitochondria

1.5 minute

Mitochondria run about 10 °C hotter than the other components of the cell. This number may be helpful when discussing thermoregulation, metabolism, cell biology, and more.

Winter Short: Mitochondria, Platelets, Golgi, & Green Pens TAPP 127

Platelets

5 minutes

I summarize the newly described functions of motile platelets (not the sticky ones) in grabbing and bundling bacteria from a site of injury. The motile platelets then deliver the bacteria to neutrophils, which gobble up the bacteria. I offer suggestions on when (and if) one could use this information in teaching an A&P course.

Golgi Apparatus

5 minutes

The Golgi apparatus has a distinctive flattened shape. It turns out that it's the functioning of the cytoskeleton that is responsible for that shape.

Why the Golgi Apparatus Looks So Funny (Kevin's blog post)

GOLPH3 bridges phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate and actomyosin to stretch and shape the golgi to promote budding.  (research article)

Ten Things We Forget to Tell Students About Cells | A Forest in My Office | TAPP 126


We list ten things that we often forget to tell—or remind—our students about cells. We learn how to create a peaceful forest-like retreat in our office using soundscapes, I get my winter shorts ready (seriously), and Margaret Reece comments about teaching urinary concepts. That last topic spurs a rant from Kevin on diversity of course sections.

It is the cells which create and maintain in us, during the span of our lives, our will to live and survive, to search and experiment, and to struggle. (Albert Claude)

 

Pee Again

7 minutes

Reacting to The Pee Episode (TAPP 125), Dr. Margaret Reece explains why she thinks the urinary system could be covered far earlier in the anatomy and physiology course than is typical. Kevin then takes off on that idea, suggesting that we should encourage differences among sections of the same course taught at the same time in a single institution.

Things We Forget to Tell Students About Cells

15.5 minutes

Here, we outline four (of ten) things that we sometimes under-emphasize to students in our A&P course when discussing cells:

★ Cell diagrams & stained specimens are best thought of as cartoons. They are simplified.

★ Cells are not multicolored, as they are often represented. They are transparent.

★ A fuller concept of the cytoskeleton

★ Molecular motors, which are part of the cytoskeleton, are the movers of cells.

This segment mentions the mind's eye of students, which is not well developed in all students.

More Things We Forget to Tell Students About Cells

15.5 minutes

We finish our list of ten things that we often forget to keep in front of students as they struggle to understand cells and their characteristics.

★ Cells interact with the intracellular matrix (ECM).

★ Things are really, really, really—really—crowded inside cells. And this is a good thing.

★ Cells are not water balloons. Not exactly. Maybe a chunk of Jello covered in butter is a good supplemental example.

★ Cell processes don't happen in steps. Steps happen in explanations, not in the continous flow of living processes.

★ Cells make mistakes. All the time. Some are tragic; some are not.

★ Cells can take care of (many) mistakes.

The Pee Episode | Teaching Urinary & Renal Concepts | TAPP 125


Teaching renal anatomy & physiology is tricky and sometimes difficult. In The Pee Episode I'll tell you how I know that for sure. Plus, I'll share some possible strategies for providing the clarity needed to avoid confusion and that unhelpful kind of frustration that sometimes accompanies the renal module in our course. And there's a song from Greg Crowther!

Lyrics

Solutes in the plasma may be lost in the urine.
(Push some solutes out; pull some solutes back!)
They're governed by a formula that's well worth learnin'.
(Push some solutes out; pull some solutes back!)
Three different processes control what you're releasin':
Filtration plus secretion minus reabsorption is excretion.
(Push some solutes out; pull some solutes back!)
(Push some solutes out; pull some back!)
