  1. 1. The Effects of Virtual Labs and Cooperative Learning in Anatomy Instruction Andy Saltarelli, Ph.D. ASSETT University of Colorado – Boulder William Saltarelli, Ph.D. College of Health Professions Central Michigan University Cary Roseth, Ph.D. College of Education Michigan State University POD Conference 2012, Seattle, WA
  2. 2. Game Plan Backstory (The Partnership) Story (The Research)
  3. 3. Backstory – Why Change?

  6. 6. Backstory – Partnering
  7. 7. Backstory – Partnering Practitioner Edu Tech Edu Psy
  8. 8. Backstory – Theory -Social Interdependence Theory (Deutsch, 1949, 1973; Johnson & Johnson, 1989) - 40 Years of Research (Johnson & Johnson, 2007): - Achievement  .55 (ES) - Self-Esteem  .42 (ES) - Peer Relationships  .42 (ES) - Perspective Taking  .44 (ES)
  9. 9. Backstory Authentic Pedagogical “problem” Interdisciplinary Partnership, T&L Research Support Theory Testing, Iterative Approach
  10. 10. Story – Human Anatomy  300 students per semester  4 credit course  15 cadaver-based lab sections taught by 7 GAs  1 large lecture and 2 labs per week  Grade of D, E or Withdrawal ~30%  Feeder/Weeder Course
  11. 11. Story - Study #1 Simulated Lab Cadaver Lab APR Only Cadaver Lab VS Only Lab Conclusions: Results: Cadaver-only students performed better than APR-only Explanation: Technology pre-training & student perceptions of software were poor Solution: Infuse active learning (e.g., cooperative learning) to ameliorate observed negative effects of simulation software

  16. 16. Current Study Experimental-control design: 2 Instructional Technology (APR, Cadaver) X 2 Cooperative Learning (Jigsaw, No Jigsaw) Jigsaw Individual APR APR APR Software + + Jigsaw Individual Cadaver Cadaver Cadaver + + Only Jigsaw Individual
  17. 17. Method  Participant Flow  N = 250 in 15 lab sections randomly to 1 of 4 conditions Jigsaw Individual APR 4 sections 4 sections Software N=73 N=63 Cadaver 4 sections 3 sections Only N=71 N=43
  18. 18. Current Study Jigsaw + APR Software

  21. 21. Independent Variables Virtual Labs via Simulation Software Cooperative Learning via Jigsaw Anatomy & Physiology Revealed 3.0 (APR) (Aronson, 1978, 2011)
  22. 22. Dependent Variable  Achievement:  Quiz Grade, 1-Week Retention (6-items; α = .78 )  Intrinsic Motivation (Ryan, 1982):  Relatedness (8-items; α = .88), Interest (7-items; α = .92), Value (7-items; α = .93)  Social Interdependence (Johnson & Norem-Hebeisen, 1977):  Cooperation (7-items; α = .89), Competition (7-items; α = .93), Individualism (7-items; α = .86)  Task-technology fit (Goodhue, 1998):  Presentation (2-items; α = .94)
  23. 23. Results: Achievement Result: Students who participated in the jigsaw activity performed better than those that didn’t on the 1-week retention quiz. (Wilks's λ=.97, F(1,218) p = .04)
  24. 24. Results: Achievement Result: No difference between APR and cadaver-only study on the 1-week retention quiz.
  25. 25. Results: Motivation Result: Students who participated in the jigsaw activity had higher motivation* than those who didn’t participate. *F=5.96, P=.01
  26. 26. Results: Motivation Result: Students who studied with APR in lab had lower motivation* than cadaver-only students. *F=28.83, P<.001
  27. 27. Results: Motivation Result: Results suggest* that the jigsaw activity ameliorated decreases in motivation observed in the APR group. *Jig x APR Interaction, F = 6.57, p = .01
  28. 28. Results: Task-technology Fit Result: Students’ perceptions of task-technology fit was greater in jigsaw over individual learning. *Wilks's λ=.95, F(1,213) p < .01
  29. 29. Study #2 – Results Qualitative (Regarding Jigsaw Activity): •I liked how I was able to teach and be taught at the same time. •Iliked teaching my objectives to others. It helped me learn more in depth. •Iliked this activity because it allows us to work together more and receive feedback from each other. •I enjoyed teaching the material to others. It makes it so I have to master it in order to teach it. •Thegroup activity helped me get more involved and learn different ways to study the material.
  30. 30. Conclusions Jigsaw cooperative learning provides clear advantages over traditional, individual lab learning methods in anatomy instruction Results suggest that jigsaw cooperative learning ameliorates the initial negative effects of introducing new virtual software The positive effects of cooperative learning pedagogy appear to “spill over” onto students’ perceptions of technology
