Pre-Testing for a Powerful Learning Boost | TAPP Radio 3

How many proteins are there in a cell? Can a sneeze rupture the throat? The Anatomical Society publishes a curated list of online resources. The featured topic is how pre-tests can boost learning by students.

The UK's Anatomical Society has put together a list of online resources under the auspices of their Education Committee (4:40)

 

Can the explosive power of a sneeze cause injury? You bet. Here's a recently reported case of a rupture of the pharynx. Yikes. (6:11)
