Learner Outcomes, Activities and Assessments

Learner Outcome

Activity (optional)

Assessment

NOTE: This course is one of a two quarter sequence. Each course covers a different set of human organ systems, with similar learner outcomes.

 

 

Identify and analyze detailed anatomical structures associated with the major human organ systems.

 

Students will identify specific structures demonstrated on dissected specimens, skeletal material, and models during written practical exams.

Describe the detailed functioning (physiology) of all major organ system of the body.

 

Written laboratory assignments will ask the students to address questions regarding the hands-on laboratory experiences. Written lecture exams will have the student answer questions, including in essay format, regarding physiological functioning.

Integrate the study of anatomy and physiology to gain a fuller understanding of human form and function.

 

Students will answer in-depth integrative questions as a part of written conceptual exams.

Relate physical structure to biological function across all levels of organization.

 

Students will demonstrate this knowledge through physiology lab reports and written conceptual exams.

Frame the current science of form and function in the context of its history and its relationship to human development and health.

 

Students will answer in-depth integrative questions as a part of written conceptual exams.

Demonstrate the dissection and laboratory skills necessary for the examination and study of the major human organ systems.

 

Student lab reports and dissections will be assessed for completeness and quality of work.

Contribute productively to peer teams.

 

Student lab exercises and dissections will be done in teams, and will be assessed for completeness and quality of work.
