Visible Body team members host a lot of training sessions for instructors interested in using technology with their healthcare students. We also host talks given by instructors who use Visible Body technology. This is a collection of recent presentations. We are sharing them so that instructors can access them anytime. Whether you are new to 3D anatomy models, are interested in teaching a flipped classroom model or an online anatomy course, want to incorporate technology into your labs, or are looking to create interactive assignments that track and test student learning, these training materials are for you.
If you are ready for your own personal instructor demo, want to request a free instructor trial to one of our products, or have questions, use the form at the bottom of the page to contact our team!
Teaching a flipped anatomy class or interested in using visual interactive assets in class with students? Watch a two-minute demo that shows how the process of olfaction can be introduced with a brief animation and further taught by having students explore and dissect a 3D virtual model of the head. This demo is for instructors who are new to interactive anatomy. The product shown is Visible Body's Anatomy & Physiology.
Looking to add technology to your anatomy lab? In this four-part demonstration, Professor Tomer Kanan from the University of Illinois at Chicago reviews the ways he has augmented his cadaver lab course with virtual 3D anatomy models: He uses 3D anatomy technology to lecture before a dissection. Students use the 3D anatomy models and the online quizzing to study and review during class and lab time and when studying on their own. This demo is for instructors interested in adding technology to a lab with human cadavers or looking to completely replace cadavers with a technology solution. The product shown is Visible Body's Courseware.
Want to track student learning and offer interactive dissection exercises? In this three-part webinar, Lora Sandhusen, our instructor technology trainer, shows how to use Visible Body's online 3D anatomy models, combined with our quiz database and quiz creation features, to make your own interactive assessments, use pre-made quizzes we offer, or edit our quizzes as you need! Students can take these quizzes from a school or home computer, and performance is tracked in Visible Body's Courseware platform.
This webcast for Harper College’s physical therapist assistant (PTA) associate degree program demonstrates how to use 3D interactive models available online to teach a functional anatomy course. The products demonstrated include Visible Body’s Courseware and Muscle Premium. The 30-minute webcast demonstrates how to create tailored lesson plans for physical therapy students, use normal 3D anatomy models or pathology models in lecture and for homework, create interactive quizzing that uses content from Visible Body (3D models, videos, interactive lessons, lab activities) or your favorite images, videos, and ebooks.
This demo for a nursing program showcases how to review key anatomy, introduce a common pathology, and quiz students on their understanding of both. The nursing program was interested in keeping topics from the students' A&P course fresh in their minds, while advancing through the curriculum to introduce common conditions and assessment skills. In this demo, Visible Body's technology trainer showcases how he created an online review of some urinary anatomy, introduced kidney stones, and added a quiz that reviews anatomy, pathology, and clinical assessment. The demo is 10-minutes.
Cindy Harley’s presentation on replacing the textbook (printed or e-book) with technology shares her research and experience changing her anatomy and physiology undergraduate course. She reviews data on why today’s students perform better with a media-first strategy, how the average grade in her course changed over a three year time span, and her recommendations. The webinar ends with a Q&A session.
Abbey Breckling and Dr. Tomer Kanan from the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted a session at HAPS 2019 in which they shared their experience using Visible Body’s Courseware platform. They answered attendees’ questions about implementing 3D anatomy education technology in the classroom and the lab.
So, you've chosen your premade virtual course from our Courses page—now what? Lori walks through the steps of editing preset course assignments, changing due dates, and publishing in Visible Body Courseware.
The VB Webinar Series is geared towards instructors who want to learn more about using Courseware in practical settings. Webinars include tutorials by our team in creating virtual assignments, making your own dissection quizzes, and how to move physical labs into a virtual world. There’s also the odd guest webinar where educators showcase the topics about which they’re most passionate!
Office hours are posted on the (virtual) door! The VB Office Hours Series is where educators currently using VB Courseware and apps can discuss their experiences with fellow educators who want to learn more. It’s also a fun way for instructors to connect with each other in real time.
