Online Video Tutorials
Beginning 2013 I have developed a number of online video tutorials. These are initially designed to help students with the "nuts n bolts" of everyday tools in their undergraduate courses. The tutorials are not designed to replace content or face-to-face teaching, but to provide additional resources for student self-directed learning and helping with those "How do I...." questions they may have with their work.
National survey on anatomical sciences in medical education
Anat Sci Educ. 2018 Jan;11(1):7-14. doi: 10.1002/ase.1760. Epub 2017 Dec 19.
McBride JM1, Drake RL. Author information Abstract The drivers for curricular change in medical education such as the addition of innovative approaches to teaching, inclusion of technology and adoption of different assessment methods are gaining momentum. In an effort to understand how these changes are impacting and being implemented in gross anatomy, microscopic anatomy, neuroanatomy/neuroscience, and embryology courses, surveys were sent out to course directors/discipline leaders at allopathic Medical Schools in the United States during the 2016-2017 academic year. Participants in the study were asked to comment on course hours, student experiences in the classroom and laboratory, amount of faculty participation, the use of peers as teachers in both the classroom and laboratory, methods used for student assessment and identification of best practices. Compared to data published from a similar survey in 2014, a number of changes were identified: (1) classroom hours in gross anatomy increased by 24% and by 29% in neuroanatomy/neuroscience; (2) laboratory hours in gross anatomy decreased by 16%, by 33% in microscopic anatomy, and by 38% in neuroanatomy/neuroscience; (3) use of virtual microscopy in microscopic anatomy teaching increased by 129%; and (4) the number of respondents reporting their discipline as part of a partially or fully integrated curriculum increased by greater than 100% for all four disciplines.

Clin Anat. 2017 Mar;30(2):159-167. doi: 10.1002/ca.22802. Epub 2016 Nov 25. A core syllabus for the teaching of embryology and teratology to medical students.
Fakoya FA1, Emmanouil-Nikoloussi E2, Sharma D1, Moxham BJ1,3. Author information Abstract Clinical relevance in the teaching of biomedical sciences within health care courses presupposes that there is internationally agreed core material within the curricula. However, with the exception of a syllabus for neuroanatomy and gross anatomy of the head and neck for medical students, core syllabuses within many of the specialized anatomical sciences have yet to be developed. The International Federation of Associations of Anatomists aims to formulate internationally accepted core syllabuses for all anatomical sciences disciplines initially using Delphi Panels that comprise anatomists, scientists, and clinicians who evaluate syllabus content. Here, the suggestions of a Delphi Panel for embryology and teratology are presented prior to their publication on the website of the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists. Hence, to obtain a more definitive syllabus, it is required that anatomical and embryological/teratological societies, as well as individual anatomists, embryologists and clinicians, freely comment upon, elaborate and amend, this draft syllabus. The goal is to set internationally recognized standards and thereby provide guidelines concerning embryological and teratological knowledge when involved with course development. Clin.
