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.

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!

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!)

Anatomy & Physiology: Combo or Split? | Journal Club with Krista Rompolski | TAPP 124


Dr. Krista Rompolski joins us for a Journal Club episode discussing a study regarding whether it's best to have a separate anatomy course followed by a physiology course, or to combine anatomy & physiology into an integrated two-semester sequence. We've all considered this question, haven't we? Now we have some data to discuss!

Cover Everything?

13 minutes

Continuing the conversation in this segment, we wonder how much we should be teaching in our courses and whether integrated A&P courses allow us to "have it all" by allowing us to "remember less" because we can revisit important concepts later on, as needed. We also remind ourselves that we don't have to cover every objective recommended for the A&P course or that is in the textbook.

Detailing the Level of Detail

We explore the idea of the amount of content in the A&P course as "being easy" versus "being manageable." Is an overwhelming course really best for students? Or is the main goal to provide a foundation upon which students can slowly build after leaving our course?

Fonts, Syllabi, and Poop | TAPP 123


Host Kevin Patton revisits the concept of using the syllabus and other course documents to build a positive and productive course culture. Poop—it's everywhere! Does the font or typeface we use affect students—especially regarding learning and memory? We look for answers in this episode!

Typography must often draw attention to itself before it will be read. Yet in order to be read, it must relinquish the attention it has drawn. (Robert Bringhurst)

 

Revisiting the Syllabus

15.5 minutes

Creating and nurturing a course culture can be influenced by our syllabus and other course materials. We revisit this idea with a few more tips and tweaks.

Fonts Are Important in Teaching & Learning

11 minutes

At the suggestion of listener Dr. David Curole, we examine the roles that different fonts can play in teaching, learning, and memory. This segment reviews some past discussions of fonts, then introduces some new concepts of using fonts in teaching. Featured is a Word Dissection of the terms fluent font and dysfluent (disfluent) font.

We identify some potentially fluent fonts, as well as a few dysfluent fonts (see image below or at AandP.info/ihy).
