You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.
Harper Lee


1 | A Song from Greg Crowther

3.5 minutes

keyboardIf you keep up with the HAPS Blog from the Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS), you may have already accept Dr. Greg Crowther’s challenge to incorporate songs into your A&P course this semester. With his permission, here’s a song from Greg that’s great for the first day of class!

Dr. Greg Crowther teaches anatomy and physiology at Everett Community College (WA).  His peer-reviewed articles on enhancing learning with content-rich music have collectively been cited over 100 times.


2 | Button & Zipper Junctions in the Lymphatic Capillary


7.5 minutes

Are you familiar with the button junctions that connect overlapping endothelial cells in lymphatic capillaries in a way that forms valves? What about zippers? Where do they fit into the story? (They do.) Here are some links to the details behind a great demo that Kevin shares for understanding lymphatic structure and function.


3 | Promoting a Culture of Academic Integrity

28.5 minutes


One way to approach “the cheating issue” in our courses is to promote a culture of academic honesty from the start. But how do we do that? Kevin shares some practical tips you can use for a comprehensive approach to creating and maintaining a culture of professional and academic integrity in your A&P courses (or any courses, really).
