I am Terry T., Ph.D. and I have been teaching Anatomy and Physiology at the college level for 25 years, both in the on-ground classroom and online. A&P is a very cool subject that at first seems intimidating, but once you get the hang of it and understand the medical language strategies, it isn't that hard. I tend to use a lot of analogies and examples as well as the disease state to help understand normal conditions.
My name is Terry T and I have been involved in researching effective study skills, teaching students to study effectively, and teaching college faculty to teach students to study their particular course content. Each student learns differently and there are numerous strategies that tend to optimally work for each learning style. Additionally, it is important for students to develop more fully their lesser used learning styles so that they can learn from teachers who teach in a specific way. I am coauthor of "100% Student Success," published by Cengage Learning, designed to assist entering college freshman with effective study strategies as well as "100% Information Literacy Success" designed to assist students with finding and using information, also an important skill in studying for any type of course. Studying is a skill just like any other academic endeavor. There are numerous strategies that work for individual unique students as well as for different content types. In addition, when students combine several studying strategies, the results improve exponentially. Effective study involves three main elements: 1) an awareness of first how you study currently, 2) how you optimally learn, 3) effective study strategies, and 4) practice! Since everyone is different, there is no right way - just effective ways for you as an individual learner.
