Host Kevin Patton summarizes many strategies from learning science that can amplify learning in our courses. Also, updates in the role of exosomes in the spread of cancer and how activity type affects the shape of our heart.

Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results. (John Dewey)
Kevin explains that show notes are notes and links related to an episode.

The episode page is a page dedicated to an episode at theAPprofessor.org and it contains the show notes, which may also be available in the podcasts or radio app where you listen to episodes.
The Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) is a sponsor of this podcast. You can help appreciate their support by clicking the link below and checking out the many resources and benefits found there. There are a bunch of 1-day regional workshops scattered all over the continent. There's probably one near you coming up this year (or next)!
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) such as exosomes and oncosomes play important roles in spreading cancer. For example, exosomes play a role in the metastasis of breast and lung cancer, through the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to the brain tissue. We are still working out the mechanisms.
Evolution has played a role in making human hearts similar to chimpanzee hearts. The left ventricle is thick-walled and short—best suited for shorter and perhaps intense bursts of activity. However, the heart is able to elongate and have a thinner wall to adapt to a lifestyle that features endurance activity.
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in contemporary instructional practice, this program helps you power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
In this discussion, Kevin borrows a mnemonic acronym from Yee and Boyd (cited below) that summarizes key strategies derived from learning science (cognitive psychology) and riffs on adapting it to the A&P course to amplify learning.
