Construction And Application Of 3d Models In Embryology
Brazil (IFMSA-Brazil) - Universidade Salvador (UNIFACS), Salvador
Interdisciplinary Group de Study in Collective Health ? GIESC, University Salvador
Ana Paula Amaral de Brito
Simone Campos Martins Freitas and Leane Souza Queiroz Gondim
Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
The teaching of human embryology in health in undergraduate courses is extremely important for their training. Embryology shows characteristics steps in the formation of cells, tissues, organs, systems and devices. However, it is often considered unexciting, decorative and without practical significance for many students, making it less effective. This theme can be enhanced with the use of methodological practices and interesting alternatives. Thus, it is necessary to create an enabling mechanism to help the understanding of students take courses that address this issue. This work aims to produce representative models in embryology of the development of various body systems. After the construction of the models, the material will be applied to students of health courses at a university in Salvador, and its effectiveness will have legitimized in the form of questionnaires.
What is the aim of the project?
This work aims to produce representative models in embryology of the development of various body systems.
What techniques and methods are used?
Initially there will be a detailed study of this issue to the definition of courseware teaching strategy and stage of development of body systems: nervous, respiratory, digestive, urinary, genital, cardiovascular. During the approach of the contents will be used the following methods and teaching resources: lectures, dialogued, whiteboard, data-show and video documentaries. Training workshops will be prepared for skill acquisition for handling the material to be used in the construction of models in embryology. After, the production of these models based on the literature review with use of materials previously selected will start. As implementation of the courseware strategy, 500 students in classroom courses at the University of Salvador, who have had prior contact with the chosen embryology content will be invited at random for the sample of this research, participate in the enforcement activity of the teaching material produced, and respond to the evaluation instrument of it.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
The student will participate in the preparation of embryonic models. It is proposed in this project the construction of models in embryology in cold porcelain (biscuit) of body systems. The student will apply the questionnaires to the volunteers after the practical lessons, and also the analysis of the data. Standardized questionnaires will be used, with questions concerning the methodology used during class. The information collected through the assessment tool will be tabulated, compared and then represented in the form of graphs and tables.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Yes, preliminary readings.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a poster - The student will prepare a presentation - The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
The student must have attended the subject of embryology or equivalent.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
