Help flip the histological components of your laboratory. When students use this “field guide” to identify unknown samples, they are quickly able to differentiate sources based on similar traits and appearance. When used in conjunction with their lab manual or textbook, the names of the differentiating characters they used are then learned, lessening confusion and improving mastery. Students learn the way they learn, not the way the instructor learns.
Assign and customize your lab manual online, 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.
