General announcement for Spring 2013: I will teach one section of BSC 1086 as an online lecture class. Only well organized students who are independent learners should consider taking a distance learning course in A&P!
I will also teach one section as a traditional lecture class. This might be the better option for many students!
I do offer two sections of BSC 1086 lab, taught in hybrid format. Hybrid means that at least 50% of the coursework is mediated online. We shall meet on campus 6 times during the term, roughly every other week.
Where are the courses located?
All courses are located inside MyHcc (Blackboard). They will become accessible to you the first day of the term, January 7th.
Note that you have no course access before the beginning of the term!
Where is the syllabus?
I will e-mail the syllabus to you via your HCC e-mail acount (Hawkmail). If you are registered in one of my courses one week before the start of the term and have space in your Hawkmail inbox you will receive the syllabus as a mail attachment. I will sent it a second time on the first day of the term. After that the syllabi are available inside the Blackboard courses.
Textbook requirements (Do not buy a textbook until you have read through the syllabus for the course!):
For online lecture: McKinley, Bidle and O'Loughlin: Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrative Approach; McGraw-Hill, 2013
Note: I suggest that you will use the eText. However, you can buy the
traditional print textbook at the HCC bookstore. This will include an
