Science-themed music videos boost scientific literacy, study shows | UW Today

The researchers say everyone learns in different ways, and past research has shown that students learn best with hands-on, personally relevant tools that utilize powers of observation and audio-visuals.

What’s Your Learning Philosophy?

I love it when something in the blog leads us to new ideas and insights. Neil Haave, who teaches on the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta, submitted an article on learning philosophies. (You can find the article in the April issue of The Teaching Professor newsletter) His thinking about learning philosophies was stimulated by his experience evaluating e-portfolios, which were being piloted on his campus, and by a couple of posts on this blog (November 13, 2013 and January 22, 2014). He was struck by how few insights the seniors preparing these portfolios had about themselves as learners and came to the conclusion that they should start writing about how they learn long before the end of their academic careers.

The Virtues of Irrelevance — NEJM

We believe that these “irrelevant” opening comments and questions serve four key purposes. First, they convey that we see the patient as a unique individual. Given the speed of medical practice, it is not surprising that patients worry that their individual concerns will not be heard.

The 3.0 platform update means that now all the apps have refined drawing tools. Can’t draw a straight arrow? No problem, we took care of that! Want bold, italic, or larger text? We took care of that too! In addition, you can now scale, rotate, and change the opacity of stamps. All this so you can quickly and easily explain conditions and procedures at the point of care.
