As the new year starts, we wanted to pause for a second and say thank you.
Thank you to all the anatomy teachers who share their knowledge and passion each and every day. Whether you teach in elementary school or work with postgraduate students in higher education—thank you.
Thanks to all the teachers who have taken the time to share tips and suggestions (and ask questions, too!) on our Anatomy in Clay® Teacher Forum on Facebook. There are over 1,000 members on there—it’s a good resource. And if you have taken time to post something about classroom work (or anything else) on social media—Instagram, Tik Tok, Twitter (X), or Facebook? Again, much appreciated. We have been tagged on some very creative videos and photographs!
Thanks to the folks behind the scenes here who put together the assembly videos for various Anatomy in Clay® Learning System models. Have you seen them? They are action-packed, start to finish. Most importantly, they will help you save time when your kit arrives. There’s a whole playlist here—Maniken Student 2, Maniken Student 2 Half, Maniken Pro Classic, Maniken Classic 11 Half, Maniken Z, Maniken Half Z, Equiken Classic and Caniken Classic too!
Thanks to Pueblo Community College for the peek behind the scenes at their multi-modal anatomy instruction.
Thanks to teachers from all over the country who took time out of their schedules to share insights on our podcast. We have talked with teachers from a parochial school in Pennsylvania, a career center in New Hampshire, a vocational school in Florida, a private university in South Carolina, a high school in South Carolina and one in Missouri, too. Our most viewed podcast interview was a detailed conversation with a teacher at Milton Hershey School in Pennsylvania.
We’ve also had great conversations about anatomy with a variety of voices. We talked about the Power of Active Learning with Eric Salahub, we talked about Interactive Biology with the YouTube star Leslie Samuel, and we talked about the important issue of Eponyms of Anatomical Terminology with Amanda Meyer in Australia.
In short, we appreciate your participation in the ongoing conversation about anatomy instruction and look forward to where the science leads us in 2024.
