For many years I have taught in both medical sonography and radiography programs. A big part of the learning task in this area is a thorough knowledge of anatomy, radiographic and sonographic images, and the ability to think in 3D. There is much to learn after two years of basic science courses and an additional two years of sonographic or radiographic education. The need to learn the many forms of technology used in medicine only compounds the learning load of students within any medical domain.
To help students, technologists, and clinicians learn both anatomy and the technology that allows for production of images, I have been part of development of many delivery methods. This includes delivery via Learning Management Systems in both the educational and corporate environment. Distance delivery of learning materials which relied on Microsoft products such as narrated PowerPoint, and Adobe Presenter have also been part of my teaching arsenal. Recently, I was the editor for a sonographic textbook and have published multiple journal articles.
Currently, I am working on my doctoral studies at the University of Utah focusing on Learning and Cognition. My goal is to increase my, and the fields understanding, of how student created representations (in the form of diagrams), help in learning the incredibly complex anatomy and technology used in the medical domain.
