Interactive Learning Modules
Hate boring lectures? We do too. Our interactive learning modules keep you engaged and participating in the moment, using in-video quizzes and other interactions so you stay focused, and, more importantly, learn more as an active participant than you would as a passive recipient. We have:
The best part is, if you are a subscriber, you can tell us which interactive modules you’d like to see, and we’ll do our best to create them for you!
Once you’ve had a chance to review the information on our topics, go to the practice questions to see how well you know it. These questions were written by actual physical therapy faculty, to match the style of the FSBPT National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) for PTs and PTAs. (It is likely that the faculty in your program write questions in the same style!)
These are like digital flash cards for learning muscles. You listen and repeat the origins, insertions, actions and innervations as you look at images, and at the end of the video, we provide you with some Jedi Mind Tricks for remembering some of the information. Research shows that when you are trying to remember this kind of information, using multiple pathways into your brain helps. With this learning tool, you are using your hearing, your vision and, as you repeat the terms, talking out loud, which improves memory retention. It also helps if you have the actual bone (humerus, scapula, etc.) in your hand, and if you perform the muscle actions as you say them, for tactile input into your brain. At the end of the video, we give you a schedule to re-watch the videos based on research that helps to improve memory retention.
Use these blank bone drawings to: 1) indicate bone markings; 2) color in origins and insertions of muscles; 3) indicate ligament attachments. Research shows that repetition increases memory retention so make multiple copies to practice over and over.
5-part video series (5-10 minutes each) that will teach you all the basics of documenting in the medical record. Includes two practice SOAP notes.
Introduction to evidence-based practice (EBP) including history and current applications in physical therapy. Describes research concepts (validity, reliability, sensitivity and specificity, e.g.), how to search for the right article, and how to analyze a research article using 10 questions.
