In Episode 138 of The A&P Professor podcast for anatomy & physiology faculty, host Kevin Patton discusses some new thinking about organelle function, why decorative animations are not a good idea in our teaching slides, news about Wendy Riggs and the 2023 HAPS President's Medal, why I don't like timed tests, resources for AI in the curriculum, and why micro-credentials are our friends. With all that, how is that we left out any mention of carbaminohemoglobin?

At the 2023 HAPS Conference, Wendy Riggs, a College of the Redwoods educator, presented a workshop on alternative grading (mentioning 106 on ungrading 😊). Wendy was awarded the prestigious HAPS President's Medal 🏅 for her contributions to anatomy and physiology education. Check out her YouTube videos for A&P and biology topics.

CRAFT (Curricular Resources about AI for Teaching) offers resources from Stanford University to enhance understanding and integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in education. They emphasize that knowledge of AI goes beyond coding and math, highlighting its influence on modern life. AI's reliance on human-generated data and the need for responsible design are explored. College faculty can subtly incorporate AI topics into their courses to prepare students for its real-world impact.

The discussion revolves around timed online tests and their impact on student learning. While timed tests aim to prevent cheating, they may inadvertently disadvantage students with certain challenges or learning disabilities. Kevin Patton suggests considering untimed tests, promoting inclusivity and accommodating students who may need extra time. He shares experiences and strategies that have worked for his students.

In human science, we are always learning something new—often replacing earlier ideas and descriptions. Nowhere is this as evident than in cell biology. This segment highlights some new thinking about organelles and their previously overlooked interactions. An example is the "dance" between mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum (ER).
