Krista Rompolski joins host Kevin Patton with our first "journal club" episode! They discuss a report on how different content delivery styles may (or may not) affect student performance. Kevin also describes a new on-demand seminar about using running concept lists to learn anatomy and physiology (or anything). And Kevin once again begs for help getting the word out about his Pandemic Teaching book.

Student engagement is the product of motivation and active learning. It is a product rather than a sum because it will not occur if either element is missing. (Elizabeth F. Barkley)


Running Concept Lists

2.5 minutes

A strategy based on the constructivist approach to learning is running concept lists. Kevin's workshop on how he and his students have used running concept lists to identify and learn core concepts, as well to understand and apply relationships among core concepts, is reproduced in a free online seminar.
