Transdisciplinary Tools, Joshua Gigantino, Laura Huisinga, Eric Andren

Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities Conference Proceedings

This session investigates what might be required of a truly transdisciplinary tool, whether digital, analog or a hybrid device. A look into existing specific solutions is examined, including the tool Skan which targets the enhancement of sequencing, memory, & saccadic eye movement through gameplay informed by research on dyslexia, oculormotor tracking skills, & pre-academic reading skills. The audience is invited to engage in a discussion of the function and form of this and other potential tools such as Maya, Blender scripting, and Mathematica.

Charleston Library Conference

The authors consider trends in mobile device usage for the Internet as a whole, for EBSCO Discovery Service across all client libraries, and at two specific libraries: Preston Medical Library, serving the University of Tennessee (UT) Graduate School of Medicine and UT Medical Center, and the Joyner Library at East Carolina University, serving students and faculty on the main campus. Librarians at Preston Medical Library conducted a survey to determine which mobile devices, platforms, and apps were used by their patrons in 2012.

Clay Modeling Of The Musculoskeletal System: Does Active Learning Increase Retention And Comprehension, Kelly Massey Mar 2014

Clay Modeling Of The Musculoskeletal System: Does Active Learning Increase Retention And Comprehension, Kelly Massey

Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching & Learning Conference

The focus of a Structural Kinesiology course is a detailed study into the musculoskeletal system and joint action. The course contains a lot of memorization: skeletal muscle origin, insertions, innervations and muscle/joint actions but there is also an applied component for the content. Group study has been incorporated into the course to increase knowledge retention and comprehension however group interaction has been seen to be minimal. Two studies have looked at group construction of skeletal muscle models using clay during class time in assisting with the active learning of muscle origin, insertion and actions (Cruz-Espaillat et al., 2010 & Waters ...
