Anatomy faculty present at Lilly Conference on Teaching for Active and Engaged Learning
Cathryn Sparks, clinical assistant professor, and Pradeep Malreddy, instructor, both from the anatomy and physiology department, presented a 50-minute concurrent session on "Incorporating Active Learning into a Large Enrollment Veterinary Anatomy Course" at the Lilly Conference on Teaching for Active and Engaged Learning, Feb. 28, in Anaheim, California.
Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning provide opportunities for the presentation of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Faculty and administrators at various stages in their academic careers come from across the United States, representing nearly every discipline found in higher education.
The session led by Sparks and Malreddy included a discussion on various active learning exercises that were successfully incorporated into a class of 115 first-year students enrolled in the veterinary anatomy course. The audience of the session also participated in model-building activity using the canine larynx that was developed by Glenn Wakley of Ross University.
