Modell and Mary Pat Wenderoth, University of Washington
9 – 12, 2003 at Seattle, WA
Note: This course will be held at a retreat location in Seattle, and participants will be required to stay at the course location. For course costs, detail and schedule, please see http://depts.washington.edu/chautauq
4-day course is designed to help instructors who know the “facts” of
physiology build a framework for developing a more unified understanding of
physiological systems. We will
explore a set of seven general conceptual models (recurring themes) that can be
used to analyze most physiological systems.
These general models are control systems, conservation of mass, mass and
heat flow, elastic properties of tissues, transport across membranes, inter- and
intracellular communication, and the law of mass action.
will practice applying the general models to various interacting physiological
systems through a series of problem-solving activities.
We will also explore classroom strategies to help students gain an
integrated understanding of physiological systems.
