“Writing this lab manual has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. It is not every day that you are given the opportunity and privilege to write a book about a topic that you truly love and to share your passion for teaching it with the world.” –Dr. Beth Ann Kersten
Kersten has been determined to create a solution that can be adopted under any teaching circumstance. In addition to print, we have also used her content to create an interactive, online version of the manual. Instructors can use the online manual as-is, customize it to meet individual course needs, assign activities, administer interactive assessments, and check for student understanding using in-class polling tools. This is powered by bluedoor’s partnership with Top Hat, the leading active learning platform.
“Beth’s passion for developing a lab manual that would resonate with both instructors and students was admirable. With every word she wrote and activity she created, she considered how it would engage students and support instructors in and out of the classroom. She delivers accurate, up-to-date information paired with beautiful, anatomically correct illustrations. Her concise, friendly approach supports the success of students at all levels.” –Shelly Stringer, Director of Content, bluedoor
