  • Retention Rate


Laboratory ideas l.jpg
Laboratory Ideas

  • Campus/Hybrid – Face-to-Face or Online with Labs on Campus

  • Simulations – Do not provide practical laboratory skills or measurement, instrumentation, and analysis.

  • Commercial Lab Kits – LabPaqs dispel the myth of online lab science


Slide19 l.jpg

Examples Of Exercises

  • EXERCISE 1: Using the Microscope

  • EXERCISE 2: Histology

  • EXERCISE 3: Classification of Body Membranes

  • EXERCISE 4: Overview of the Skeletal System

  • EXERCISE 5: The Axial and Appendicular Skeleton

  • EXERCISE 6: Joints and Body Movements

  • EXERCISE 7: Organization of Muscle Tissue

  • EXERCISE 8: Gross Anatomy of the Muscular System

  • EXERCISE 9: Muscle Physiology

  • EXERCISE 10: Organization of Nervous Tissue

Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions

  • Generational Differences are not Definitive

  • Observations About Online Learning

  • Technology can be Used to Enhance Instruction

  • Distance Education and Face-to-Face Instruction can be Equally Effective

  • Access to Information does not Equal Knowledge
