Anatomy & Physiology II Learning Outcomes

Hello,

I have not officially met with my team yet, but I wanted to share the learning outcomes listed for the A&P II lecture and lab courses here in hopes of getting the conversation started before our meeting on Thursday.

FranU (my university) has the following course-level student learning outcomes outlined for the Anatomy and Physiology II lecture course:

  1. Describe the human body using directional terms and anatomical terminology
  2. Compare and contrast tissues throughout the human body
  3. Identify specific structures in the indicated body systems (nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, urinary, reproductive)
  4. Relate structure to function in the body systems (nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, urinary, reproductive)
  5. Apply the concept of homeostasis to the indicated body system (nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, urinary, reproductive)
  6. Apply physiological concepts to the indicated body system (nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, urinary, reproductive)

And we have the following course-level learning objectives established for the Anatomy and Physiology II lab course:

  1. Describe the structure, function & location of the major components of the nervous system ā€“ including the special senses.
  2. Describe the structure, function & location of the major components of the endocrine & cardiopulmonary systems ā€“ including the lymphatic system and immune response.
  3. Describe the structure, function & location of the major components of the digestive & urinary systems.
  4. Describe the structure, function & location of the major components of the male and female reproductive systems.

I have experience using Openstax textbooks, and they have one for Anatomy and Physiology. I do not currently have access to a free lab manual, though. I will be sending this information via email as well because Iā€™m not yet sure the best way to reach everyone on my team. Hopefully, we will work that out during our upcoming meeting.
