Air Pollution [Liberal Arts: Math and Science/Natural Science]
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This assignment was designed for students in the pathways introductory chemistry class and the first year seminar and aligns with the Inquiry and Problem Solving core competency. In this context, there is a focus on framing the issues (identifies and/or addresses questions and problems), evidence gathering (assembles, reviews and synthesizes evidence from several diverse sources), evidence (analyze the data to address the questions posed) and conclusions (critical thinking, reflect on the outcomes, draw conclusions and generate new knowledge). There is also a Global Learning component based on comparing data collected locally with corresponding data from other locations or countries. The assignment includes the written communication ability with a focus on "Content Development and Organization," as well as the clarity of the communication and its purpose. The overall aim of this assignment is to enhance students' conceptual learning and understanding of key issues related to society as well as their course. This assignment was developed as part of a LaGuardia Global Learning mini-grant and CUNY Experiential Learning and Research in the Classroom mini-grants.
The assignment will be scaffolded over about 3 weeks and is worth about 10% of the final grade.
To further increase the success of this assignment, instructors might want to consider the following: Use class discussions to focus on the relevance and importance of conceptual learning. In order to improve the data analysis aspect, incorporating class demonstrations of how to conduct the analysis and guide discussions about what the data means. Giving students more detailed rubrics with formal expectations of the requirements of the assignments, particularly in the written format Find ways to increase student participation in class discussions.
When this assignment has been utilized in previous semesters, students clearly displayed the capability to relate the co-curricular experiences in the data collection and its analysis to concepts and ideas covered during class. Evidence for this came from very dynamic and interactive class discussions based on air pollution as well as from the output of the written assignment, in which students were able to relate the nature, sources and chemical properties of the pollutants to their impact on the environment, health and society in general.
LaGuardia's Core Competencies and Communication Abilities
List the Program Goal(s) that this assignment targets
Global Learning based on comparing pollutant levels around the LaGuardia campus with those in other locations or countries. It is also an IPS assignment, incorporating scientific literacy and thinking, as students need to analyze the data, interpret it and reflect on the outcomes.
List the Student Learning Objective(s) that this assignment targets
Identify and apply fundamental chemical concepts and methods. Gather, analyze, and interpret data.
List the Course Objectives(s) that this assignment targets
Explore the complex connections between chemistry and society. Apply chemical principles to real world issues, including ethical aspects. Gather, analyze, and interpret data.
Write a short description of the pedagogy involved in executing this assignment
Students collect and analyze the data, interpret the results in terms of pollution levels, safety and ethics and compare with EPA standard levels and with levels in other countries.
Outside the classroom events will be organized for data collection. There will be class and group-based discussions focused on the data, its analysis and the connections to society.

Four chapters at the end of this book are presented using a functional approach, which means that the material is organized around physiological functions, such as fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy and metabolism, and blood health, instead of organizing it strictly by nutrient (as done in the earlier chapters).

Anatomical Variation: An Australian and New Zealand Context
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This textbook is designed to actively engage your exploration and critical analysis of human anatomical variation in an Australian and New Zealand context. Understanding anatomical variation is essential for all health professionals to avoid patient misdiagnosis such as confusing a natural variant with a pathology, minimise surgical or procedural errors that may occur if variations are unexpected, and ultimately improve patient outcomes by applying culturally safe practices. Research in anatomical variation has demonstrated significant differences in phenotypic expression of variants between and within geographic, ancestral and socioeconomic populations, as well as displaying significant variance between males and females. It is therefore critical as a health professional to understand anatomical variation in the context of the population you intend to practice in. This textbook compiles this critical information into an easy to read summary of the range and frequency of anatomical phenotypes in Australian and New Zealand patients by drawing from contemporary anatomical science research. Anatomical variation of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori peoples has also been highlighted where research is available.

Anatomy & Physiology Learning Guide – Part I
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This learning guide is for part I of the two-semester human anatomy and physiology courses that support students pursuing programs in a medical or paramedical career, or a degree in physical education. It is cloud-based, interactive, independent of a textbook, and aligned with national standards, Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) learning outcomes, to be perennial and widely adaptable.

There are nine learning modules in the learning guide. Each module is divided into topics aligned with the HAPS learning outcomes. Here is a brief introduction of the components found under each topic.

A Short Lecture: These are written by experienced undergraduate Anatomy and Physiology instructors to give you a brief overview of what you might expect to learn from your Anatomy and Physiology course.

A Concept Map: To visualize relationships and help students dig into ideas and organize their thoughts.

Key Points: A very quick overview of important concepts for the section.

Muddiest Points: Points that have caused confusion for students.

Interactive Exercises: These exercises can help students check their learning.

Students can use the learning guide as the following:

An overview before starting a topic in an Anatomy and Physiology Course
A guide to correct anatomical terminology that underlies the concepts of the course work
A place to review confusing concepts in regular course work
A place to find extra resources for study of concepts that are either understood or are still murky.

The development of this human anatomy and physiology learning guide is made possible with the support of the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) Open Course Grants. It is created by a group of experienced faculty members at Northern Virginia Community College and reviewed by several members of the Human Anatomy and Physiology faculty at George Mason University.
