Class Experience

I have over 13 years experience teaching anatomy and physiology, which includes topics (such as wounds, blood, death and drug use) that are sensitive to some learners.  At the beginning of class, all learners are made aware that I am open to questions and that the chat is always set to private for any questions or comments.  This course is primarily an anatomy class.  Sensitive topics such as cannibalism and body modification will be approached from an anatomy-physiology-factual standpoint.
An optional study guide can be downloaded or printed out before class to help the learner follow along in lecture.  Study guides can be completed during class time.
 2 files available upon enrollment
An optional study guide can be downloaded or printed out before class to help the learner follow along in lecture. Study guides are to be completed individually.
