American Physiological Society to create physiology education resources with Labster

Newswise — Rockville, Md. (November 20, 2023) — The American Physiological Society (APS) is pleased to announce a new partnership Lobster, the world's leading platform for virtual laboratories and scientific simulations. through partnership, APS Physiological Education Center Develops resources for undergraduate physiology educators exploring the implementation of virtual reality tools to enhance teaching of complex physiological processes.

The Center for Physiology, a community of excellence focused on the physiology of teaching and learning for physiology teachers, launched in August 2022. Developed by over 500 educators, the Center's collection of learning modules, teacher-approved resources, and a powerful platform. For community discussion and engagement, we offer a comprehensive approach to advancing physiology education and learning.

Resources created through the partnership between APS and Labster include an educational webinar and best practice guides designed to advise physiology instructors on integrating virtual anatomy and physiology labs into their curricula, which will be released in early 2024.

“Forming partnerships with science education technology providers like Labster has been key to providing our community of physiology educators with cutting-edge platforms with professional development tools,” said APS Director of Learning and Career Development Margaret Steuben.
