Resources and Tips for A&P Professors
Kevin Patton’s Course Outlines
Why I provide outlines to my students
- Even though I write several textbooks, no one textbook is organized exactly the way I teach my course. I’m sure that you are the same.
- I have my students print out their outlines and bring them to the lecture/discussions class
- They use the outline to follow where I’m going and where I’ve been (it’s a visual organizing tool)
- They use the outline as a framework for taking their own detailed notes
- The outline already has most of the difficult-to-spell terms already correctly spelled out for them
- The online version of the outline links them directly to definitions and pronunciation guides or audio files
- They use the outlines during the lecture discussion
- They use their outlines during their online quizzes and tests
- They use their outlines to find which passages of the text are most relevant to the course
- They use their outlines to review for tests and exams.
- I can easily supply my students with links to other resources including (not limited to):
- Gray’s anatomy, Visible Human Project, and other anatomical specimens
- Interactive learning activities
- Articles and other resources that provide more information if the student wants or needs it
- Related outline material in other sections of the course
- PowerPoint slides that relate to each point in the outline
You can provide these outlines to your students!
- Your students may find them to be a valuable supplement to their other learning materials.
- You can simply link to lionden.com and let the students find their way, or
- You can link directly to any of my outlines from your course website (or provide the URLs to your students)
- You can import or copy the content of my outlines into your own course if you have previous written permission from me and cite the source as
- “© KPatton@lionden.com“
This citation applies even if you adapt the material or modify it from the original!
- Use something like “adapted from material © KPatton@lionden.com” or “portions from material © KPatton@lionden.com”
