Unformatted text preview: Human Anatomy and Physiology II CBIO 2210/2210L Spring 2010 Overview Requirements Policies Exams Grading Laboratory Schedule Course Overview General Description and Learning Objectives! !       Human Anatomy and Physiology is a two-semester course sequence offering a comprehensive study of two scientific disciplines: human anatomy and human physiology. Both courses emphasize the interrelationship and integration of the structure and function of the human body on the molecular, cellular, and organ system levels. The first semester (CBIO2200/2200L) topics include the integumentary, osseous, muscular, nervous and sensory systems. The second semester (CBIO 2210/2210L) topics include the autonomic, endocrine, cardiovascular, urinary, and digestive systems. The primary goal of this course is for you to acquire the basic foundational knowledge of human anatomy and physiology that is necessary for you to succeed in your chosen field in the health sciences. This basic knowledge requires your mastery of factual materials, laboratory techniques, and problem-solving skills. Specific objectives are listed on eLearning Commons and are based upon national standards set by the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society for sophomore-level (secondyear) introductory anatomy and physiology courses. Students are expected to demonstrate competency at an adequate level according to criteria for each objective. There are three long-term goals of this course. First, students will learn to evaluate material and make decisions based upon information they have mastered. Second, students will learn to find and use resources for answering questions and solving problems. Third, students will acquire skills in working with others as a member of a team. The ultimate goal of this course is for you to become a life-long learner.

You have mastered the course material if you can analyze, synthesize and evaluate a topic; these are considered higher-order thinking skills. Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Outcomes (see http://education.calumet.purdue.edu/vockell/edpsybook/bloom/bloom%27s_taxonomy.htm for more details) describes the six different cognitive levels that we will use to address and define learning in this c o u r s e . T h e f o l l o w i n g , t a k e n f ro m e H o w ’s H o w t o T h i n k L i k e a G e n i u s (http://www.wikihow.com/Think-Like-a-Genius), is an excellent example of these learning levels. 1. Knowledge: Knowing a fact. Knowing 2 + 2 = 4, doesn't mean you know what 2 + 2 = 4 means. 2. Application: Knowing how to use the fact. You can determine that 2 cats plus 2 cats equals 4 cats. You don't know what 2 + 2 = 4 means, but you can apply it. 3. Comprehension -- Understanding a fact: You understand the concept of addition and how 2 + 2 = 4. 4. Analysis -- breaking down information into its parts. 4 - 2 =2"; (1 + 1) + (1 + 1) = 2 + 2 = 4 5. Synthesis -- creating something new, writing a book, etc. 6. Evaluation -- Discussion of the merits of 2 + 2 = 4 . The syllabus is a general plan for the course. The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 1 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Team-Based Learning Extensive research has demonstrated that team-based learning (TBL) activities promote higher-order learning. During this semester, I will assign you to a team; you will work with this team during the entire semester. You are encouraged to sit with your team during each lecture period since there will be many unannounced team-based activities this semester and moving to another seat during these times is disruptive and inefficient. In addition, there are a number of team-based extra credit opportunities throughout the semester. If you are not sitting with your team, you will miss these opportunities. Team membership is semi-randomly assigned. When possible, your team will consist of seven students, each of whom is registered in the same laboratory section. If your team membership drops below five individuals, please see the instructor for reassignment. Lecture Information !       The lecture portion of this class is taught in 404E Biological Sciences from 12:30-1:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You are expected to attend all lectures; if you choose to skip a class, all missed handouts and announcements are your responsibility. Be advised that downloading material from the eLC course website will not provide you with a complete set of class notes and that a significant portion of your final letter grade is based upon performance on in-class quizzes and team learning activities. Laboratory Information !       Your laboratory section meets in room 319 of the Biological Sciences building. First labs begin the week of January 24. You must attend the laboratory section to which you are registered. You may not switch laboratory sections, regardless of circumstance. Our anatomy lab is one of the few in the country that allows undergraduates hands-on experience with human cadavers. In addition, our physiology labs will allow you hands-on experience with many common clinical laboratory procedures. Use of either lab presupposes your acceptance and agreement to abide by laboratory policy. Your teaching assistants will outline these policies to you during your first scheduled lab period. Inappropriate behavior will result in permanent expulsion from the anatomy and physiology laboratories. Disabilities Accommodations can be made for students with disabilities. Please meet with me during office hours to discuss your learning needs. Course Requirements Prerequisites Anatomy and Physiology I is a pre-requisite for Anatomy and Physiology II. In addition, you must have strong college-level reading comprehension, time-management, organizational and study skills to succeed in this course. You will need to spend a minimum of two hours out of class for every hour you spend in class. Some students with a broader background in biology may need less time, but others may need much more. On average you should expect to spend at least 18 hours of concentrated study each week outside of lecture and lab learning the material and completing assignments.

The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 2 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Course Policies Student Responsibilities You are responsible for your own learning and education. You are expected to read assigned material before attending class and to make a valuable contribution to the classroom discussion. Irresponsible, passive students obstruct the learning environment and interfere with the goals of responsible students. Instructor Responsibilities I am responsible for explaining the course goals and helping each student develop and attain personal goals for the course. In addition, I am responsible for planning and carrying out course instruction; facilitating discussion; expediting availability of lecture notes and webcasts; and returning assessment materials and email inquires in a timely fashion. In short, I here to help you learn. Student Classroom Conduct Appropriate classroom etiquette is essential for an effective learning experience. Students have a right to a productive and stimulating learning environment. A disruptive student, in either lecture or lab, will be told of his or her inappropriate behavior; this discussion will include suggestions regarding appropriate behavior, as well as suggestions regarding a resolution of any laboratory or lecture conflicts. Continued inappropriate conduct will result in instructor-initiated academic withdrawal from the course. In addition, the student’s behavior may be s u b j e c t t o d i s c i p l i n a r y a c t i o n u n d e r t h e U n i v e r s i t y ’s C o d e o f S t u d e n t C o n d u c t (http://uga.edu/judicialprograms/2008-2009%20Code%20of%20Conduct.pdf) Note that disruptive behavior may include the non-approved use of electronic devices, including cellular telephones. Missed Class and Exams All students are expected to attend all scheduled classes. If you miss an in-class team-based project, you will not be able to make up that score, regardless of your excuse. If you miss a laboratory practical, you will not be able to make up that score, regardless of your excuse. To accommodate unexpected absences, students are permitted to drop their lowest iRAT and laboratory score. If you miss a lecture quiz, you will be able to reschedule that quiz if you (1) contact me within 24 hours of the exam date and (2) provide a valid, documented excuse. You must take this lecture exam before the next scheduled class period. It is the instructor’s right to judge any excuse as invalid, regardless of documentation. Late Assignments All assignments in this course are turned in electronically, and each student is expected to review the course calendar to determine when these assignments are due. The instructor will not accept any late assignments for any reason. Academic Misconduct Zero Tolerance Policy The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs provides all students registered at this University with a booklet titled "A Culture of Honesty at the University of Georgia". This booklet specifies the policies to which you must adhere. All academic work must meet the standards contained in “A Culture of Honesty”. Students are responsible for informing themselves about those standards before performing any academic work. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact me. A student who has engaged in academic misconduct as defined by “A Culture of Honesty at the University of Georgia” will be removed from this course and will receive a failing grade in the course. The link to more detailed information about academic honesty can be found at http://www.uga.edu/honesty/ahpd/culture_honesty.htm The syllabus is a general plan for the course. The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 3 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Recommendation Policy The following must be met in order for a recommendation letter to be written for you: • You must be in good standing in the class currently, meaning that you are scoring at least in the top 20% of the class. • If you have completed CBIO2200, then you must have finished the class with at least a B+ for an undergraduate recommendation (such as for nursing school) and an A- for any graduate program (PA school, NP school, Pharmacy school, Medical School). Please request recommendations by email. Exams Lecture Exams There are three lecture exams; each accounts for 10% of your grade, for a total of 30% of your total grade. These exams are by far the most rigorous aspect of this course. Since the laboratory and lecture portions of this class teach redundant material, you are tested twice over the same information. The lab practicals are specialized to assess general knowledge and application of material, whereas the lecture exams test your retention of precise, detailed information, as well as your ability to apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate this material. All lecture exams are in a multiple choice format. Each exam begins promptly at 12:30 p.m. and you will have the entire class period to complete each exam. An answer key is available outside room 319 as soon as everyone has taken the exam. You must use a Scantron form (supplied by us) and a #2 pencil (supplied by you) to answer lecture exams. Please come prepared with a pencil and functional eraser on exam days. You will enter your 810 number on your Scantron. We cannot score and record Scantrons that lack your student identification number. You are required to enter two pieces of personal information on your Scantron form: your student identification number (“810 number”) and your test form. Your particular test form is clearly written on the top of your test, as well as on the cover page. Failure to enter your 810 number on your Scantron form will result in ten points subtracted from your exam score. Failure to enter in your test form on your Scantron form will result in ten points subtracted from your exam score. Failure to enter in both of these vital pieces of information results in 20 points subtracted from your test score. You are not permitted to use any outside sources to complete an exam. Case Studies There are three case studies, worth 100 points each, that count 15% toward your final grade. Each case study requires synthesis and analysis of materials from the text, lecture, and lab. Some case studies will include additional readings that are available on-line. You will work with your team to complete these assignments. Every member of each team is subject to three case study peer reviews; each peer review is due two days after each case study deadline. If you fail to complete a peer review, you will receive a zero for the group portion of your grade. The instructor reserves the right to overrule peer evaluation scores. Your CS grade is calculated using the following formula: # (Average of your peer review scores)*(total case study score) You will have an opportunity to complete a practice peer review to determine what aspects of your performance will be judged by your teammates. You may use your resources, textbooks, and notes to answer the case study questions, though you ARE NOT permitted to directly quote or copy any source materials. You MAY NOT imitate the syntax and phrasing of your source. For example, substituting a few synonyms in a sentence is not acceptable. If you do not understand these instructions, read the material found at http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/plagiarism.shtml and ask The syllabus is a general plan for the course. The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 4 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II questions. If your team turns in a paper that contains directly quoted or copied material, I will assume that the entire team did so knowingly and deliberately, and all members of the team will receive the utmost sanction defined by the University. For more details regarding these policies and sanctions, see the Academic Honesty section of this syllabus. Please note that half of all case studies are routed automatically through Turnitin, a type of anti-plagiarism software, where they are checked against written and electronic sources, as well as compared against each other. If this software produces a result consistent with plagiarism, your entire team will meet with a representative of the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs for a final decision. If your team DOES NOT want your paper submitted to this software, your entire team must write a statement indicating that the group does not give the instructor permission to use Turnitin to detect plagiarism. Your paper may still be scanned for plagiarized materials, though other software and methods will be used. Clicker Quizzes Clicker quizzes will account for a total of 5% of your grade. These quizzes are administered using the PRS Interwrite unit several times during each class period. The class will usually begin with questions from the previous class or reading material and then a few questions may be asked during the lecture itself to help you synthesize the information for that day. These questions are multiple choice or true/false. You MAY use your class notes and confer with neighboring students when answering these questions. However, you MAY NOT use your textbook. You MAY NOT use any electronic device to complete these questions, even if your normal method of taking notes is by typing them into your computer. You will need your remote to answer these questions. If you do not bring your clicker that day, you will not receive points for that quiz. Please do not ask for special consideration regarding this policy. No paper submissions are allowed. There are no make-up points available. Furthermore, you must be present to answer these questions; you are not permitted to allow anyone else to use your remote in your absence. Individual and Team Readiness Aptitude Tests Readiness Aptitude Tests (RATs) account for a total of 10% of your grade. The class will decide the exact allocation of individual and group points during the first week of classes. Each RAT consists of questions that cover a specific chapter or chapters of your textbook. Each RAT is scheduled for the first day in which we begin a new lecture module; the schedule for these tests will be available on the eLC calendar. Each quiz will consist of ten questions. You will have ten minutes to take the individual portion (iRAT) using your Interwrite clickers. If you do not bring your clicker that day, or if it malfunctions, you will not receive points for that iRAT. Please do not ask for special consideration regarding this policy. No paper submissions are allowed. There are no make-up opportunities for iRATs. However, to accommodate unavoidable absences, your lowest iRAT score is dropped. Immediately after the completion of the iRAT, you will have 30 minutes to meet with your group and complete the exact same quiz, the team RAT (tRAT). Feedback for each tRAT question is immediate. If you believe that the RAT key in incorrect, your team has until the next class period to contest that item. Appeals can be written if an answer is incorrect based on factual reasons (supported by the text, but see Discepancies Between Lecture/Lab and Tests) or if a question is poorly written. To receive credit on a poorly written question, you must rewrite the question in a better way. You are permitted to write one appeal per item, and the decision of the instructor is binding. You will complete a peer evaluation that assesses the performance of each of your team members. If you fail to turn in an evaluation, your peer evaluation score will be a zero. The instructor reserves the right to overrule peer evaluation scores. Your grade on the RATs will be determines as follows: ! [(your average score on all iRats) + (your team’s average score on all tRATS*your peer evaluation score)]/2 You may not use any outside resources to complete either the iRATs or the tRATs. The syllabus is a general plan for the course. The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 5 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Laboratory Practicals There are a total of nine laboratory practicals this semester, worth 50 points each. Laboratory practicals account for 30% of your total grade. Laboratory practicals usually consist of fill-in-the-blank and short answer questions. No outside resources, other than a calculator, are permitted. There are no make-up exams in lab. There are no exceptions to this rule. Please make a note of the exam schedule at this time and plan your schedule accordingly. To account for unavoidable absences, you are allowed to drop one lab practical. Final Exam The final exam is comprehensive and covers both lecture and lab material. It consists of 100 multiple-choice items and is worth 10% of your final course grade. Weekly Review Session To help you succeed, we have arranged for weekly review sessions. The time and location of these sessions will be announced in class; you will also find this information on the class calendar. To help us prepare for your review session, you must submit questions and topic suggestions to the Discussion Board under the heading “Review Session Topics”. If there are no topics or questions submitted, then the review session for that week will be cancelled. Discrepancies Between Lecture/Lab and Texts Though infrequent, there are occasionally discrepancies between the lecture or lab materials and the texts. In the case of a discrepancy, material presented in lecture or lab is considered to be authoritative and accurate. We are aware of most of these inconsistencies, and have validated and updated our data. The reasons for most of the inaccuracies are publishing deadlines, not any fault on the part of the author. The most beneficial time to question these discrepancies is before a test, not after. Grade Appeals You are required to keep track of your grades, and to ensure their accuracy. Keep your original, graded papers in the event that any grades are missing or misrepresented. If you believe that your test was graded inaccurately or that the exam key in incorrect, you may challenge this issue in writing through an email sent to the instructor’s eLC private mail account. You have one week after you take an exam or lab practical to contest an item; you have until the following class period to contest a RAT or Clicker Quiz item. There are only two acceptable reasons to write an appeal: (1) an answer is incorrect based on factual reasons (for example: supported by the text, but see above) or (2) if a question is poorly written. Your message must contain (1) the title of the test or a way to identify which test you have reviewed; (2) a way to identify the item number that you are contesting (if possible, it is best to reproduce the question); and (3) why your answer is correct or, if the question is poorly written, your rewritten question. You are permitted to write one appeal per item, and the decision of the instructor is binding. Grading Student-initiated Academic Withdrawal Any student who withdraws from the course before the withdrawal deadline will receive a WP, regardless of actual standing in the course. A student who withdraws after this deadline will receive a WF, unless the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs has approved a special hardship withdrawal. Instructor-initiated Academic Withdrawals Any student who misses three or more consecutive class periods will be withdrawn from the course due to excessive absences. The syllabus is a general plan for the course. The instructor may deviate from the syllabus as necessary; any changes will be posted to eLC . 6 Spring 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Grades Your grades will come from many sources: lecture exams (30%); clicker quizzes (5%); RATs (10%); case studies (15%); laboratory practicals (30%); and a final exam (10%). Your grades are posted on our web page and updated as soon as they are scored. NOTE: If you choose to contest your grade, or there is a factual error in the recording of your score, you must contact the appropriate source WITHIN ONE WEEK AFTER A SCORE IS POSTED. If there is an error with a lab practical score, contact your TA. If you would like to review your lecture quiz, or you believe that there is a grading error, go see your TA. Contacting the wrong person may extend your dispute past the deadline, in which case you will forfeit your right to have your score corrected. Final Letter Grade Your grade in this course is determined by your performance in lecture and lab. There is no curve. Standard cutoffs are used to assign grades. The grade of an Incomplete is assigned only at the recommendation of the Office of Student Affairs. Any student convicted of academic dishonesty will receive a grade of “F”. You must pass both the laboratory and lecture portions of the course in order to pass the course. Students who do not meet this criterion will receive a failing grade regardless of their total course average. 98.0-100% = A+ 93.0-97.99% = A 90.0-92.99% = A87.0-89.99% = B+ 83.0-86.99% = B 80.0-82.99% = B77.0-79.99% = C+ 73.0-76.99% = C 70.0-72.99% = C60.0-69.99% = D <59.99% =F Changes to Your Final Letter Grade Final letter grades are changed based upon factual errors. No other criteria are acceptable. Please note that if there is a factual error in the score you see recorded on eLearning Commons, you have one week after that score is posted to have that error corrected.
