Title: Anatomical Terminology to Analyze Movement
Authors: Tamara Bories and Miguel Narvaez
Affiliations: Western Illinois University
Resources available with this module: Readings, application exercise, RAT
Context: KIN 392 – Bio Mechanics
The lesson provides the students a video recorded mini-lecture, practice questions, additional website links and resources for further exploration of content that may be difficult to understand with first exposure.
The pre-reading consists of a portion of the textbook used for the course: Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, (3rd edition, 2013), published by Human Kinetics Press (Champaign, IL). The assigned reading comes from the chapter entitled Angular Kinematics (pp. 178-189). The students are provided the learning objectives as a study guide to the TEDEd Lesson and pre-reading material.
By the end of the module, students will be able to:
- identify the positions of the joints when standing in anatomical position
- identify how directional terminology is used
- classify planes and the associated axes of motion
- utilize movement terminology for each of the major joints when describing movements
- apply anatomical terminology when analyzing movements
- analyze movement complexity; sequencing of and simultaneous movements
- evaluate movement complexity; sequencing of and simultaneous movements

In next month’s free TBLC webinar, presenter Amanda Emke from Washington University School of Medicine will discuss assessing professional behaviors in pre-clerkship medical students in a team setting. Preclinical physician training often focuses on individual knowledge acquisition as students work individually and indirectly with faculty assessors. Therefore, the assessment of professionalism in preclinical training allowing for longitudinal assessment and early recognition of at-risk behaviors continues to present challenges. Team-Based Learning (TBL), with peer interactions at its instructional core, provides unique opportunities for direct observation of professional behaviors. Dr. Emke and her team developed a novel assessment strategy using paired self- and peer-assessments of professional behaviors observed during TBL sessions.

Register here for the TBLC webinar at 12:00pm ET on Thursday, January 10 for an hour-long preview of the meeting, including an orientation to the workshops and sessions, speakers and poster presentations that round out our robust conference. Take an in-depth look at the content offered in each workshop as well as the content’s interconnectedness across various disciplines. Peter and Jennifer will show you why the TBLC annual meeting can benefit any educator who wants to meet and interact with others who are serious about developing their knowledge of TBL and why the session offerings are essential for every serious TBL instructor.
We will also have time for a Q&A session where you will have the chance to ask questions about the conference.
Remember to register for the conference and make your hotel arrangements at www.tblcmeeting.org. The deadline for Early Bird registrations is 15 January.
The TBLC now offers a 3-tiered certification process for educators:
(1) Fundamentals, (2) Practitioner, and (3) Trainer-Consultant. These are described below. Further information is available at www.teambasedlearning.org and clicking on Resources.
To obtain the Fundamentals Certification, educators must attend five (5) workshops that are essential to laying the foundation for applying a team-based learning strategy.
The Practitioner Certification is designed for those who are skilled in the development of TBL modules and experienced in facilitation using the TBL strategy.
The Trainer-Consultant Certification is designed for members of the TBLC who have achieved practitioner certification and are now actively mentoring others to develop their own TBL modules.

This team-based learning (TBL) module addresses basic strategies to control or eliminate infectious disease, focusing on parasites as the main example. Students develop an understanding of parasite life-cycles in the context of solving real-world problems in global health. This includes basic knowledge about the disease, characteristics, habitat and transmission, pathogenesis, laboratory diagnosis, prevention, life cycle and any hosts or vectors, number and location of infected population, and eradication or control strategies.
An emphasis on neglected tropical diseases provides complex problems with regional and societal facets, and economic and political challenges, in addition to basic and clinical science content. Application exercise problems address major factors in disease elimination including vaccination, physical barriers, targeting vectors, effectiveness of treatment, role of different hosts, and detection of infected individuals.
Organisms/diseases covered include Plasmodium (malaria), Dracunculus (Guinea worm), Onchocerca (river blindness), Wuchereria (lymphatic filarisis), and poliovirus (polio), and touch on measles and smallpox as examples of possible recurrence.

As you may recall, the TBLC offered a Fundamentals Track Certificate at the 2018 Meeting in San Diego, California. If you attended the meeting, completed the five fundamentals workshops for the certificate, and did not receive your certificate, please let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can re-send it to you.
If you weren’t aware of the Fundamentals Certificate, TBLC will be offering it again at the 2019 Meeting in Tampa, Florida! The Certificate includes the following workshops:
1. Fundamental Principles and Practices of TBL
2. Creating an Effective TBL Module
3. Evaluating Multiple Choice Questions for Readiness Assurance Tests and Application Activities
4. Improving Facilitation Skills for a TBL Classroom
5. Peer Feedback and Evaluation
The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) is offering a unique opportunity to experience team-based learning at the 2018 regional workshop in Cleveland, OH on Saturday, September 15, 2018.
This all day session will offer 2 workshops: Fundamental Principles and Practices of TBL & Creating an Effective TBL Module. These workshops will be led by TBLC’s Certified Trainer-Consultants Smita Krishnamurthy and Liz Winter. You won’t want to miss these essential TBL courses that, by the end of the day, will have you ready to take team-based learning back to your classroom.
