Blended learning has become increasingly common in higher education. Recent findings suggest that blended learning achieves better student outcomes than traditional face-to-face teaching in gross anatomy courses. While face-to-face content is perceived as important to learning there is less evidence for the significance of online content in improving student outcomes. Students enrolled in a second-year anatomy course from the physiotherapy (PT), exercise physiology (EP), and exercise science (ES) programs across two campuses were included (n = 500)...

BACKGROUND: Face-to-face instruction, paper-based case-studies and clinical placements remain the most commonly used teaching methods for therapeutics curricula. Presenting clinical content in a didactic manner presents challenges in engaging learners and developing their clinical reasoning skills which may be overcome by inclusion of the virtual patient (VP). Currently there is limited literature examining the use of the VP in therapeutics teaching and learning. This review aimed to determine the role of VPs in therapeutics education, specifically the impact on student experiences, performance, and clinical skills...

The desert ant Cataglyphis fortis inhabits the salt pans of Tunisia. Individual ants leave the nest for foraging trips that can cover distances of more than 1,500 m [1]. Homing ants use path integration [2, 3], but they also rely on visual [4] and olfactory [5] nest-defining cues to locate the nest entrance. However, nest cues can become ambiguous when they are ubiquitous in the environment. Here we show how ants behave during the nest search when the same cues occur at the nest and along the route. Homing ants focused their search narrowly around a visual or olfactory cue that in training they had experienced only at the nest...

BACKGROUND: Although blended learning has the potential to enhance the student experience, both in terms of engagement and flexibility, it can be difficult to effectively restructure existing courses. To achieve these goals for an introductory Pathology course, offered to more than 250 undergraduate students at UNSW Sydney, we devised a novel approach. METHODS: For each topic presented over 2-3 weeks, a single face-to-face overview lecture was retained. The remaining content that had previously been delivered as conventional lectures was converted into short (12-18 min) online modules...
