Visualizing Microbiology, 1st Edition

ISBN: 978EEGRP28159

Visualizing Microbiology, 1st Edition provides an introduction to microbiology for students who require the basic fundamentals of microbiology as a requirement for their major or course of study. The unique visual pedagogy of the Visualizing series provides a powerful combination of content, visuals, multimedia and videos ideal for microbiology. A dynamic learning platform encouraging engagement with real clinical content, Visualizing Microbiology also brings the narrative to life with integrated multimedia to see and understand the unseen in the world of microbiology.

Visualizing Microbiology, 1st Edition contains many case studies integrated throughout the text, in addition to the microbiology toolbox videos and animations. Written in the personal narrative format shown to enhance long term knowledge retention, these patient scenarios frame each chapter. Students are exposed to medical scenarios that accurately simulate true patient/care provider interactions. The realistic experience nurtures critical thinking skills while also encouraging development of patient empathy, improving comprehension of patient compliance problems, and facilitating student understanding of transcultural health care concerns.

These activities allow students to apply the basic information learned within a clinical application helping them building critical thinking skills.

Features

  • Microbiology Toolbox Videos: Videos of key experiments in Microbiology. These include many classic and common clinical lab experiments along with more recent lab techniques. These provide students exposure into the lab and seeing best practices and application of techniques being learned.
  • Animations: A comprehensive library of animations, designed to aid self-learning. Visualizing Microbiology benefits from the development of an animated learning system, consisting of vibrant art, 5-7 3D animations that focus on the core topics of Microbiology, and supplemental 2D animations which allow you to review and revisit the concepts from your class and text.
  • In the Hospital: Chapter opening Video vignettes introduce the chapter material and provide context for better understanding and engagement. These openers are all shot in clinical settings to provide better student context.
