Aging involves an intrinsic and progressive decline in function that eventually will affect us all. While everyone is familiar with aging, many basic questions about aging are mysterious. Why are older people more likely to experience diseases like cancer, stroke, and neurodegenerative disorders? What changes happen at the molecular and cellular levels to cause the changes that we associate with old age? Is aging itself a disease, and can we successfully intervene in the aging process?This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. Many instructors of the Advanced Undergraduate Seminars are postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in teaching.

A COPD Primer
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

The COPD Primer begins with an examination of what COPD is; it is really a syndrome, a constellation of historical features and clinical, physiologic, and radiographic findings. However, those elements come together in many different ways to create multiple different COPD phenotypes that are only now being recognized and used to define specific management strategies. COPD research has progressed beyond the simple classification of “blue bloaters” and “pink puffers.” Next, the epidemiology and economic consequences of COPD are reviewed. Bill Eschenbacher presents an approach to the patient with respiratory symptoms with detailed discussions of pulmonary function testing and how airflow limitation/obstruction is identified by spirometry and the use of lung imaging to identify individuals with COPD. Michael Borchers and Gregory Motz summarize current evidence implicating genetics, proteolytic imbalance, oxidative stress, inflammation, occupational and environmental exposures, and innate and adaptive immune function in the pathogenesis of COPD and the implication of these findings to future treatments. The single most important intervention in the prevention and treatment of COPD is smoking cessation. Shari Altum, Katherine Butler, and Rachel Juran present a practical approach to smoking cessation utilizing motivational interviewing in combination with pharmacologic interventions. Then, they expand upon these concepts to provide practitioners with convenient, realistic suggestions to encourage patient self-management in all aspects of COPD care and overall health. Ahsan Zafar reviews the natural history, recently described COPD phenotypes, and gender differences that clearly illustrate the broad spectrum of disease that comprises the term, COPD. The cover illustration highlights Dr. Zafar’s creative and artistic talents. The extensive nonpulmonary aspects of COPD are reviewed by Ralph Panos in an examination of COPD’s multi-organ manifestations. Next, the effect of COPD on sleep and the overlap syndrome, the concurrence of COPD and obstructive sleep apnea, and its consequences are presented. Jean Elwing examines the effect of COPD on the pulmonary vasculature with a detailed discussion of the evaluation and management of pulmonary hypertension associated with COPD. COPD’s effects on psychosocial functioning and familial interactions are presented by Mary Panos and Ralph Panos.

These abilities are exercised by students in the Career/Interview Presentation project. The main goal of the assignment is to promote student networking within the scientific community through interviews with an expert in the field. Also the FYS students will conduct background research about their career choices and use their findings to determine if they can be realized when interviewing a professional. The assignment is scaffolded whereby students will learn to use on-line resources to search for information about the profession and use on-line tools to material in preparation for the interview. Students will learn how to write professional emails, network and create PowerPoint slides. After the class presentation, students are asked to write a reflection in their ePortfolio on their career choice and interview experiences. The time dedicated for this project is on the order of weeks and counts for 20% (15% oral presentation and 5 % reflection) of the final grade.

One of the major components of the First Year Seminar in Natural Sciences (NSF101) is to introduce students to library research. The library orientation session exposes students to library resources such as books, videos, journals, databases. The "Choosing Your Career" assignment reinforces using the library by searching for information on a career, retrieving sources from select databases and evaluating the information found in a written reflection. Reflection questions are added to guide the student in their search and their approach to their career choice.
The goal is to integrate library literacy as part of their developing college learning skills. This assignment effectively introduces information literacy as the ability to find and use information and critically think about the information found when deciding on a career path.
This assignment consists of the following;
90-minute library orientation session (one lecture session)
followed up by library research (students' time)
initial draft (hard copy for instructor comments)
written revision (students' time)
a final written 1500-word research reflection. (deposited on student ePortfolio)
Objectives
1. Identify one science profession that interests you
2. Research the profession using library resources
3. Write a 1500-word reflection including the questions posed

This open educational resource (OER) was developed to ensure best practice and quality care based on the latest evidence, and to address inconsistencies in how clinical health care skills are taught and practised in the clinical setting. The checklist approach, used in this textbook, aims to provide standardized processes for clinical skills and to help nursing schools and clinical practice partners keep procedural practice current. Each skill/procedure is covered in a chapter that has learning objectives, a brief overview of the relevant theory, checklists of steps for procedures with the rationale behind each step of the process, and a summary of key takeaways. Key terms are set in bold throughout the book and laid out again in a Glossary in the appendix. All 88 checklists are also summarized, and hyperlinked to the original checklist, in the appendix.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

The Cultural Diversity in Healthcare assignment is designed for the SCX 101 Patient care course. This assignment was first implemented in 2011 and has undergone significant revisions in the past few years from individual presentation to collaborative group presentation in 2013 and the connection to the Health Science First Year Seminar (HSF) assignment in 2018. The most recent revisions made were through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) workshop on Global Learning in Fall 2018. Feedback from the CTL seminar led to the inclusion of the Learning Objectives of the assignment and prompts that direct students to relate their topic to possible clinical scenario. The feedback from the seminar participants was particularly useful in tweaking the assignment to meet all the dimensions of LaGuardia‰Ûªs Global Learning Core Competency rubric. Their feedback also helped in providing clearer instructions to the students.
The purpose of this two-part assignment is to learn from each other‰Ûªs culture and help educate the class about the different cultural practices that can influence how a healthcare worker should communicate with the patient. Through completion of this assignment, the students will be able help identify practices or beliefs that can be a possible barrier to good patient care and help decrease health disparities in Radiology.
This high stakes assignment accounts for 15% of the students‰Ûª final grade in the course. We scaffold the assignment through a lesson on cultural diversity, cultural competence and patient communication. Following the lesson, we facilitate class discussion on cultural competence and cultures. The lesson and class discussion will provide knowledge on the importance of cultural competence in providing utmost patient care. The assignment also fulfills the Global Learning Core Competency, mid-point deposit, and it reinforces the Written and Oral Communication Abilities.
LaGuardia‰Ûªs Core Competencies and Communication Abilities
COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Introduce students to the importance of the ARRT Code of Ethics, including the. Technologist‰Ûªs accountability and responsibility to the patients and to the field. Familiarize students with the moral, ethical and legal issues relevant to the healthcare field.
ASSIGNMENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES: The student should be able to define and explain Cultural Diversity. The student should be able to understand the different culturally significant attitudes, practices and beliefs and their impact on the delivery of patient care. The student should be able to explain how lack of cultural knowledge, awareness and sensitivity contributes to health disparities. The student should be able to understand their role and responsibility as a Future Radiologic Technologist in decreasing health disparities through cultural competence. The student should be able to identify and discuss practices or strategies that can promote the ethical principles of patient care.

Assignment Description: This assignment was designed during Learning Matters 2018-2019 Digital Communication sub-seminar. The assignment was originally a written paper based on the clinical manifestations and pathogenesis of a diagnostic condition. As the profession of physical therapy is inherently a teaching profession, an oral and digital component was incorporated to facilitate the student's ability and confidence in oral communication and use of media. The presentation of a diagnostic condition and implication in the performance of activities for an individual can be variable depending on the individual's physical status, medical/health history, and psychosocial status. To enable a holistic understanding of a diagnostic condition, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health Model (ICF Model) is integrated into the assignment. The ICF model is biopsychosocial interconnected dynamic relationship of the health condition, body structures/functions involved, participation in life activities and an individual's environmental and personal factors (contextual factors). This assignment is a Level I baseline assignment to assess the student's integrative learning competency and oral/digital communication abilities. In addition, this assignment is the initial assignment in the PTA program's scaffolded Capstone project. This is a graded assignment worth 35% and the average completion time is 2-3 weeks. The breakdown of the assignment grade includes completion of the ePortfolio component and an in class oral presentation of the diagnostic condition.
A Diagnostic Condition and Its Implications is an assignment for the Introduction to Physical Therapy course. It will assist the student in understanding how a diagnostic condition can be unique for an individual. The overall objective is for the student to develop a holistic and complete clinical picture of a diagnostic condition including, how it can affect the individual during and post rehabilitation and how it can impact an individual's execution of activities and participation in life events by using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health Model (ICF model). The student will use the ICF model as a framework for describing and organizing information on functioning and disability based on the diagnostic condition. Each student selects a diagnostic condition from an established list and develops a multimedia presentation based on the ICF model. Using the ICF model template provided, the student will integrate the assigned diagnostic condition to the body structure/function impairments, activity limitations/restrictions, participation level in life situations and the contextual factors (environment and personal). For the development of activity limitation/restriction, participation level and the contextual components of the ICF model the students are instructed to draw upon their personal situation, environmental factors (natural physical environment) and personal factors (support, relationships, attitudes). The connecting of the individual student factors will allow the student to view the diagnostic condition holistically. The grading criteria for this assignment is based on the Integrative Learning Core Competency, and the Digital and Oral Communications Abilities rubrics.

Disability, Mobility, & Society is a newly developed assignment for a required level II physical therapy course (SCT 221). It is aimed to familiarize students with the psychosocial and socioeconomic challenges faced by people with physical disability/dysfunction and their immediate community. Students work in teams to develop multimedia pre-recorded video presentations based on actual clinical case studies. Each team will identify and discuss issues related to the specific pathology and impairment, and consider the medical/social/behavioral/financial implications for the individual and the society. The team must present a course of physical therapy intervention that illustrates clinical competence and professional standard of care. Students are encouraged to draw connections to their personal experiences as related to relevant local and/or national healthcare issues. The grading criteria for this assignment is based on the current Global Learning and Oral Communication rubrics.

This Drug and Disease assignment has been prepared for the capstone course Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology (SCV 262). Students take the course in the last semester of the 2-year AAS degree in Veterinary Technology at LaGuardia Community College. Students completing this assignment are second year (junior), clinical phase students. In this course, students are introduced to concepts in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, providing a basis for an applied, systems-based introduction to veterinary drugs. The course also introduces concepts in pharmacy management and toxicology. As a capstone course, this course assignment provides a basis for students to apply veterinary medical knowledge and practice communicating this application in both written and oral formats. The assignment typically takes students several weeks to complete and is worth 20% of the final grade.
The Drug and Disease assignment asks students to choose a veterinary drug (from an instructor-created list) and connect this drug with an associated veterinary disease that can be treated with it. Students are encouraged to use research, experience from prior veterinary technology coursework (Introduction to Veterinary Technology, Veterinary Pathophysiology, Veterinary Nursing, Veterinary Laboratory Techniques and Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology) along with clinical experience to support this investigation.
Students are first asked to demonstrate their ability to make logical (medically-sound), technician-level connections and conclusions about the drug and disease by writing a research paper. They then are asked to participate in a mock-client discharge/interview about the drug and disease that they have researched.
