Sweeney, Lauren J.; Brodfuehrer, Peter D.; Raughley, Beth L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2004
One important goal of introductory biology laboratory experiences is to engage students directly in all steps in the process of scientific discovery. Even when laboratory experiences are built on principles discussed in the classroom, students often do not adequately apply this background to interpretation of results they obtain in lab. This…

Tallitsch, Robert B. – Advances in Physiology Education, 1996
Physiology programs must continue to prepare graduate students for research postdoctoral positions. They should also prepare them for employment at smaller institutions that have higher teaching demands and that encourage-but do not require-research. Suggests changes in the way Ph.D. candidates are taught and in the way professors mentor students…

Richardson, Daniel – Advances in Physiology Education, 1997
Compares student perceptions and learning outcomes of computer-assisted instruction with those of traditional didactic lectures. Class representatives indicated that students did not perceive computer instruction as being time effective. However, exam scores from computer laboratory questions were significantly higher than those from either…
