Description

Using RedCap, an online survey, the study examined the occupation of learning neuroanatomy by comparing four cohorts of students from doctoral programs in physical and occupational therapy at a private nonprofit university. Researchers compared performance on practical examinations and perceptions on meeting learning objectives by Cohort A-1 and A-2, who used minimal virtual dissection, with that by Cohort B-1 and B-2, who were required to use virtual dissection throughout a graduate neuroanatomy course delivered in the hybrid format. Average cohort performance on a uniform final practicum as subjected to T-test analysis showed that the performance by the cohorts were indistinguishable. The results of the study also show that Cohorts A-1 and A-2 scored minimally higher on the final lab practical; however, more students from Cohorts B-1 and B-2 felt that the virtual dissection material helped them learn the course objectives. This validates the use of virtual dissection to meet learning objectives.
