    Effective Visuals in Anatomy and Physiology: A Discussion of Strategies
    Speaker: Mark Nielsen, University of Utah

It is difficult to imagine effectively teaching either anatomy or physiology without the use of visuals. How can we use visuals more effectively? Where can we acquire good visuals? Visuals can often be the difference in students understanding a concept or going away questioning. Mark Nielsen will share some of his best practices for the use of visuals with A&P students. Mark will provide specific examples of how the use of visuals can improve student retention and engagement and share some of the best resource locations for accessing visuals and how to use these effectively with your Anatomy and Physiology students.

    Bringing a Virtual Cadaver Experience into Lab
    Speaker: Mark Nielsen, University of Utah

Real Anatomy is a new cadaver-based software program. It allows both students and faculty to simulate the experience of a real life cadaver lab. Mark Nielsen will take you on a walk-through of the features and functionality of this software and provide suggestions on ways to successfully integrate into the curriculum.

    Mummies of the World Exhibit Tour

Mummies of the World, the largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled, presents a never-before-seen collection of both accidental and intentionally preserved mummies, presented with reverence and dignity.
