Anatomy and Physiology is intended to be an inquiry based experience. Too often this subject is taught as a vocabulary class, my intent is to focus more on how the body works and not what the names of the parts are. I intend to do a grerat deal of small group projects and exploration. I am a retired physician and plan to structure each unit around the common diseases of that unit. I feel this will make the experience more interesting and encourage student participation. I do not intend to do a lot of dissection becasuse I am not sure that cutting up something you know little about is an opportunity for learning, I do intend a lot of small group activity and exploration. I intend to have a lot of fun at the end of which we will know much more about how the body works.
