Physiology Video Practicals

This aim of this CLIPP funded project was to supplement the practical lab component of the first year Physiology course.  To enable students to view physiological experiments that demonstrate important physiological principles but which are not possible for them to perform themselves.  Two videos of different experiments were filmed and produced by Aston Media, these were then placed on the Blackboard course site.  Following their designated laboratory practical classes students were also given data from the viewed experiment and answered assessed questions online. This presentation will discuss the rationale of using the Video practicals, the process of their production from the “academic user” point of view, their success from analysis of assessment and exam data, and “learner” experience from the course student survey questionnaire.
