De Paleville, Daniela Terson – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this outreach program was to promote elementary school students' understanding of human physiology and exercise science. I conducted this outreach event for 421 pre-kindergarten through grade 5 students attending a Spanish-immersion elementary school within a large, urban public school district in Kentucky. To meet the needs of the…

Franklin, Brandon M.; Xiang, Lin; Collett, Jason A.; Rhoads, Megan K.; Osborn, Jeffrey L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Student populations are diverse such that different types of learners struggle with traditional didactic instruction. Problem-based learning has existed for several decades, but there is still controversy regarding the optimal mode of instruction to ensure success at all levels of students' past achievement. The present study addressed this…

Miller, Cynthia J.; McNear, Jacquee; Metz, Michael J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2013
In engaging lectures, also referred to as broken or interactive lectures, students are given short periods of lecture followed by "breaks" that can consist of 1-min papers, problem sets, brainstorming sessions, or open discussion. While many studies have shown positive effects when engaging lectures are used in undergraduate settings,…
