Life did not take over the world by combat, but by networking. (Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is seen by some as the emerging technology to replace teachers. Really? How should we respond?

The human microbiome is rapidly emerging as an important character in the story of human structure and function. Perhaps we should start thinking of it alongside the other major systems of the body—as the human microbial system (HMS).
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is graduate program for A&P teachers. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in instructional practice, this program helps you power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
The next few episodes will be super, spectacular, and special. So I'm calling them "specials" just like the grownups in the media world do.
These specials will be single-topic-ish recasts of some of the major themes from the past 18 months of this podcast. A mix of old and new. But mostly, the classic stuff that we'll benefit from reviewing and reflecting upon.
Hold onto your seats, this is going to be a blast!
