Faculty are now incorporating the Anatomage Table into their lab courses to enable students to review the course concepts independently and in small groups. At the end of the lab, students are grouped into teams of six to eight members to complete a quiz at the Table, reviewing the key terms they learned on that day. Through this approach, students can receive immediate feedback on their performance, unlike many traditional methods of assessment.
The Anatomage Table’s quizzing tool is a built-in feature that enables instructors to customize testing options. The instructor can create a preset of selected anatomical structures and ask the students to identify those structures through multiple options – including keyword selection, flashcard, or multiple choice.
For example, the Anatomage Table has helped students review the systems of the human body, including muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive systems. In one instance, the faculty have utilized the Table’s quizzing tool to test student understanding of muscular, digestive, and nervous system anatomy. Specifically, the quiz content covers particular anatomical structures related to the organ system studied on the same day.
Not only does this method help students reinforce course concepts before leaving the lab, but it also fosters an exciting learning environment that promotes active learning. Many students report that they find the Table useful in their learning of Anatomy and Physiology.
