When we have no relevant experience or expertise, the vulnerability, uncertainty, and fear of these firsts can be overwhelming. Yet, showing up and pushing ourselves past the awkward, learner stage is how we get braver. (Brené Brown)
Professor and author Brené Brown talks about "effing first tries" but which I call "fumbling first tries." These are the firsts cited in the quote above—those that involve that awkward learner stage. And yes, getting through our FFTs makes us braver!

Don't forget—HAPS members get a deep discount on AAA membership!
Zoombombing involves unwanted intrusion into our web meetings. There are ways to avoid this however!
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 be your best in both on-campus and remote teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
The online protein folding game called Foldit lets you and/or your students help scientists work out protein folding that promotes scientific advancement. And interesting way to learn science, help science, and contribution to potential therapies for COVID-19 and other diseases. Teaching resources are available.

When we give presentations, it's best if our slides serve our story—rather than letting our story serve our slides. How to do that? Sparse, well-organized text and lots of pictures.
Episode sponsor ADInstruments is offering their Lt online learning platform with content for laboratory solutions in physiology, anatomy, and biology free at this time to help professors get ready-to-go, quality online lab experiences quickly.
