Human Anatomy and Physiology

Biology 1220

Welcome to the course!

This course and its companion course, Human Anatomy and Physiology 1120, deal with the relationship between structure and function in human biology.

Lectures emphasize basic concepts in biology and the role of the major organ systems of the human body. Laboratory activities examine anatomical relationships and the physiological functioning of human organs.

A learning community

Our course will follow a "flipped" classroom model. In a flipped course you learn much of the material before a class, using various resources. Our online and In-class time will focus on the key knowledge and concepts of each chapter.

This website is the core learning centre for our course. Each chapter will have a webpage (or pages) with the chapter objectives, downloadable study notes, self-test question sheets, workbook material and lecture related videos.

You work your way through the material before we all meet online and in-person as a class. Our Zoom and in-class meetings will focus on going over areas of content that you need a hand with or for other activities, such as case studies and labs.

For many this will challenge how they learn but it does provide an exciting opportunity to empower yourself as a learner.
