Human Anatomy and Physiology

Human Anatomy & Physiology (BIO 141/142; 8 total credits)
 
 
Objectives:  In this course we focus on the structures of the body and how they determine function.  All body systems are integrated, so we learn how they rely upon each other and the pathophysiology of the body when things go wrong.  Guest speakers from various medical professions will come in to talk about different paths available to students interested in health & medicine.
 
Labs focus on technology through collaborative learning using:
  • Vernier Labquest Platform to gather data on physiological reactions
  • Histology reports using Zeiss PrimoStar compound microscope with LabScope App for iPads to generate digital reports of slides
  • Inquiry-based design labs created by students with formal scientific lab reports
  • Teamwork, collaboration, and presenting skills are another focus.  Students will work together to research through case studies acting as diagnosticians and research disease/disorders of their choosing. They will learn to create, design, and present effectively as a team while researching a number of different technology platforms to create professional presentations.
