Examining the Anatomy and Physiology Lab Experience

Live Date:12/2/2021

Duration:60 minutes

Laboratory experiences play a fundamental role in a robust biology education, allowing students to experience and explore living systems through powerful hands-on activities. Lab activities present a luxurious opportunity for experiential learning that can be incredibly rich (and fun!). However, the lab component in a fully online science course is often viewed with skepticism by many, including administrators, counselors, students, and instructors. In fact, many professional programs in healthcare require that the lab component of prerequisite courses be completed in a face-to-face setting. 

In this webinar, Wendy Riggs will identify some of the core student outcomes of the anatomy and physiology laboratory experience, and then explore different ways to effectively address those outcomes in a fully online environment. This presentation will take an honest look at common barriers to hands-on lab activities in online classes and explore the pros and cons of various solutions.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the important outcomes of laboratory experiences for anatomy and physiology students.
  • Discuss common barriers to hands-on laboratory experiences in fully online science courses.
  • Examine the pros and cons of common online laboratory solutions.
