Transcript of "Creative Ideas to Assist Gorski et al"

  1. 1. Creative Ideas to Assist Student Learning Ewa Gorski, Steve Kabrhel, and Ellen Lathrop-Davis Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Third Annual Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference
  2. 2. Concept Mapping <ul><li>Studies show making associations between bits of information aids learning </li></ul><ul><li>Concept mapping helps students make these associations </li></ul><ul><li>Applicable to all subjects </li></ul>
  3. 3. Concept Mapping <ul><li>Instructor-led concept maps </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Instructor provides information to be mapped </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Models mapping for students </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Goal: students learn to prepare their own maps in a “safe” environment </li></ul><ul><li>Online students create maps using mapping software </li></ul>
  4. 4. Mapping in the Classroom <ul><li>Whole-class kinesthetic mapping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Involves all your students together </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Small group kinesthetic mapping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Encourages small-group interaction </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Electronic concept mapping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Concept mapping software for online and on-campus classes </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Getting Started – Instructor-led Mapping <ul><li>Whole-class Concept Mapping in Lecture </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: animal cell </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Small-group Concept Mapping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: human blood circulatory systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: histology cards (visual mapping) </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Whole-class Concept Mapping <ul><li>Goal: to encourage participation by all students in class </li></ul><ul><li>Instructor provides cards with terms </li></ul><ul><li>Animal cell </li></ul><ul><li>Review of cell organelles & their functions </li></ul>
  7. 7. Small Group Mapping <ul><li>Goal: to encourage group discussion </li></ul><ul><li>Human blood circulatory systems </li></ul><ul><li>Review structural components and their relationships </li></ul>
  8. 8. Small Group Mapping <ul><li>Goal: to encourage group interaction </li></ul><ul><li>Instructor provides cards with terms </li></ul><ul><li>Nerve impulse </li></ul>
  9. 9. Small Group Mapping <ul><li>Goal: to encourage group interaction and visual recognition </li></ul><ul><li>Instructor provides micrographs </li></ul><ul><li>Organize micrographs into large groups then refine </li></ul>
  10. 10. Leading Students to Generate Concept Maps <ul><li>Levels: </li></ul><ul><li>Instructor provides terms, students work together </li></ul><ul><li>Students provide terms, work together </li></ul><ul><li>Students generate individual maps </li></ul>
  11. 11. Online Concept Maps <ul><li>Goal: to encourage students to generate their own concept maps </li></ul><ul><li>Concept mapping software </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CMaps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inspiration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Microsoft PowerPoint </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Use of Concept Maps Online <ul><li>Use of concept maps in online classes or as an online resource </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Action Potential Example </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Macronutrient Absorption Example </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Action Potential: The Question
  14. 14. Action Potential: The Answer
  15. 15. Action Potential Outline <ul><li>Chemically Gated Channels are found at </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dendrites and Cell body </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>which let in </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Sodium </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>which </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>depolarizes the cell body and dendrites </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>and if </li></ul><ul><ul><li>inside the cell reaches threshold </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Voltage Gated Channels are </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>found at </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Axon and Axon Hillock </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>which lets in sodium </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>which depolarizes the axon you get </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Action POTENTIAL </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>but if </li></ul><ul><ul><li>inside of the cell doesn't reach threshold </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>you get </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NO Action Potential </li></ul></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Macronutrient Digestion: The Question
  17. 17. Macronutrient Digestion: The Answer

  19. 19. Macronutrient Digestion Outline
  20. 20. And in Conclusion… <ul><li>Concept mapping is especially useful for complex processes… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But can be used to organize any information </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Instructor leads the students… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>With the goal that students will generate their own concept maps </li></ul></ul>
