Human Performance Teaching Lab 'only one of its kind in academia'

1steptest340.jpgThe Human Performance Teaching Laboratory was featured in a recent Minnesota Daily article as "the only one of its kind in academia."

The lab, established in Mariucci Arena in 2006, is dedicated to student learning through hands-on experiences in courses about exercise physiology, biomechanics, and human anatomy and physiology. "The importance of the lab is that students need functional knowledge," says George Biltz, M.D., lecturer in human physiology and exercise science. "Learning anatomy from a book may be accurate, but it's not the same as actually delving into deeper layers."

In the article, lab manager Donald Dengel, Ph.D., associate professor of exercise physiology, emphasizes the value of using state-of-the-art equipment to teach students the latest techniques and theories in kinesiology.
