This is a story about energy and equilibrium: a semester-long investigation of the global energy balance of Earth. Participants work with scientific models, maps, satellite images, and quantitative data. In hands-on investigations, they use physical models, light probes, temperature probes and spectroscopes to investigate light and its interaction with matter. Building on work with assessment from the previous course, participants come to understand formative assessment as an integral part of the teaching-learning process that takes place at each stage of scientific inquiry. They also learn to enlist their students and school colleagues as partners in formative assessment in order to move student learning forward. The course is blended face-to-face and online course.

The Golden Gate Bridge: From U.S. History to Physics
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Our goal was to create a unit that explores all aspects of the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge from its conception to the present. The unit explores such things as first-hand stories from the men who devoted years of their lives to the bridge, and the science that has made the bridge such an enduring part of the Pacific Coastline. Students will perform research online as well as study articles written when the bridge was built. They will read about the engineers who are seismically retrofitting the bridge, and in a lab setting they will test the strength of cables made from copper and bicycle wire. By the close of the unit, students should understand the interconnectedness of the world that we live in, especially through the eyes of a historian and a physicist.

Human-Animal Relationships
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This course is the first part of the Ethics and Values Signature Program, which is one of the factors making Tufts unique in veterinary education. It is designed to enrich the student's understanding of various aspects of our individual and communal relationships with "animals" (or, to use scientific terminology, "other animals"), and to stimulate creative thinking about the expanding horizons of veterinary medicine, particularly those relevant to both traditional and newer forms of human-animal interaction. Class sessions, which include a major allocation of time for student participation, touch on a wide range of issues affecting companion animals, wildlife, farmed animals, research animals, public health, law, social and cultural values regarding nonhuman individuals and communities, and various forms of the human-animal bond. Emphasis is placed on prompting each student to think about and discuss the broader issues of veterinary medicine, such as the role(s) of the individual veterinarian, veterinary education, and the veterinary profession.
These eleven lectures are specifically designed for first-year students, and in particular to enrich your understanding of various aspects of human-animal relations. The deeper goal, as it were, is to stimulate thinking about some of the expanding horizons in veterinary medicine that involve changing perceptions of human-animal interactions.

Human Growth and Development
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

The study of Growth and Development can help us to know a person more thoroughly and thereby be better doctors than were we to meet our patients without such informational prompting. One can follow various developmental "tracks" longitudinally from birth to death, for example, following the development of motor, language or cognitive capacities and skills from the beginning of life to its end. Alternatively, one can study the individual at various cross-sectional stages/ages of life. Examples of this are seen in the lectures on Adolescence or Late Life. The longitudinal tracks and cross-sectional stages complement one another in our efforts to learn more about patients. Knowing more about Growth and Development will help you to generate questions when talking to or hearing about a patient that will deepen your knowledge about them, questions that otherwise might not have occurred to you.

The intent of this course is to introduce students to basic tactics used by microbial pathogens to establish infectious diseases. As such, students should understand that most of the principles detailed in the course will be encountered several times during the next year of studies, particularly in the Infectious Diseases unit. The topics covered in this course deal selectively with important pathogens because Medical Microbiology will not be the only exposure of the student to infectious agents. As examples, HIV is only covered in two lectures, but you will have other opportunities to review the basics of disease caused by this virus.

Only 25% of US medical schools have a required nutrition course. Tufts provides such a course with 25 hours of instruction as lectures and small group activities. The course spans the theoretical to the clinical aspects of nutrition. The student learns to obtain information and knowledge, develop the ability to interpret and evaluate current nutrition research, and develop critical thinking skills on the use of nutrition in medical care. Small group assignments include: making a personal dietary assessment, trying a dietary change based on the DASH diet (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension), and interviewing a subject to obtain information on current eating patterns (with evaluation of this intake and dietary recommendations developed as a report). The "4 Messages" from the DASH diet are used as the overall unifying nutrition messages for the general US population and those at risk or with problems of hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular disease, or type 2 diabetes. Also addressed is the the role of exercise and the identification of behavioral skills from the perspective of the physician and the patient in order to successfully achieve a change in lifestyle for better health.

This course is designed to challenge and encourage you, as veterinary students, to explore the relationships between population health and public health, animal health and human health, and clinical and population-based health practice. If we are successful, the process of exploration will continue throughout your graduate school education and training so that when you graduate, you will be better equipped to define your role as a veterinarian, and that of the veterinary profession, in public health.

This course focuses less on memorizing facts and more on understanding concepts, less on finding the right answer and more on applying critical thinking. The life of an individual animal may not depend on what you do here, but in the real world your contributions may help to shape the future direction of Veterinary Public Health and the health of animal and human populations.
