A New Way of Understanding Anatomy & Physiology
Two senior members of the ICNM/BRCP have put their heads together and written a new book on Anatomy & Physiology.
Sport Massage Therapist, Earle Abrahamson, and Amatsu Practitioner and Trainer Jane Langston, have co-authored a book that provides new insights into this area of learning.
Called Making Sense of Learning Human Anatomy and Physiology, the book engages the reader by presenting anatomy and physiology as a lived experience, one that requires an understanding of terms and concepts. The book presents anatomy as a language and uses the principles of language learning to clarify meaning in anatomy and physiology study.
In a learner-friendly approach, the chapters of the book take the reader through a journey of both studying and making sense of the content in anatomy and physiology. The book provides a road map for understanding problems and issues in studying the subject matter, provides useful insight into pracitcal and effective assessment techniques, explores the subject matter from a learning approach perspective, and considers different methods of teaching to understand how best to convey the message and meaning of anatomy and physiology.
Like all books on teaching and learning, the emphasis of this text is on the quality process of delivering anatomy and physiology so that learners learn not only to pass an examination or assessment, but more importunely, retain the fundamental building blocks of anatomical study and application. The final chapters provide useful resources that can be used to further explore concepts, assessment, learning activities and applications.
The book will be published on September 30th and is available for pre-order on http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1905367708
