Can you believe it? Even more questions about my wacky testing scheme are answered in this episode—this time regarding stats demonstrating effectiveness of these strategies. I also talk about gray hair turning brown, naturally, why we do NOT want our students to master A&P concepts, and why we want to become the hippocampus.

Six More Textbook Tricks | Teaching With Your Textbook Effectively | TAPP 97
We faculty rarely talk about how to use textbooks effectively. Not with each other, not with students, not with anybody.

Oh, that huge A&P textbook I teach from! Do I really need to cover all of it? Host Kevin Patton discusses his take on this age-old problem. Does the color of my marking pen send a signal that I don't want to send to my students? A breakthrough in understanding how teeth sense cold.
