This Human Anatomy course is organized on a systems level, covering the nine major systems of the human body:    

History, Anatomy, Axes (beginning with the basics)
The Integumentary System
The Skeleton 
The Muscles
The Nervous System
The Circulatory System
The Respiratory System
The Digestive System
The Excretory System
The Reproductive System


Fall 2017 Lectures

Week 2 (Sept 5 - Sept 7)

Week 3&4 (Sept 12, Sept 14 and 19)

I use traditional powerpoint lectures to convey this material, and incorporate multiple interactive group exercises into my course. These activities include figure labelling and table completion, as well as more interactive digital tools. An excellent tool I use in my class and laboratory is the virtual human model, Complete Anatomy, developed by 3D4Medical. This tool has revolutionized my ability to demonstrate dynamic human anatomy, and is an essential addition to any Human Anatomy course. I am also developing an application using ARIS that will serve as an active learning tool for this course. This ambitious project will hopefully be implemented for a pilot into my Summer 2018 course.
