Welcome to the Class Blog

Congratulations! You've found the class blog. The main reasons we have a class blog are to provide everyone in the class with a space to review key concepts about anatomy & physiology and to keep up with class announcements.

Part of your participation grade is based on your involvement with the class blog. You need to post at least two comments on this blog every week. Also, Murray (your PsTL 1135 professor) and I are working on research looking at how podcasting and blogging impact the learning experiences of undergraduate students. If you agree to participate in this research project by completing survey forms, your name will be put into a drawing for an iPod Nano. The iPod will be given away during the last week of class.

Also, since this is the first entry for the blog, please answer these questions:

Are you excited about studying anatomy & physiology this semester? Why or why not?

To respond to this question, click on the "Comments" link below. You need to put in a "name" that the comments will be posted under--you do not have to use your real name. Also, you need to enter an email address--please use your real UM email address so that you will get credit for posting.

Email me with your questions or you post questions as you comment. Thanks.
