I received this email asking me to pass this on to KABT members.
ESSDACK based at Hutchinson, KS will be offering the two-day hands-on human anatomy training using the “Anatomy In Clay” manikins on October 27 and 28 of 2015. Mr. Dan Whisler, who teaches human anatomy and physiology at Sterling High School and has already trained over 100 teachers in Kansas, will be facilitating this workshop at ESSDACK! We have already ordered the take home manikins for teacher participants in order to have them available at the workshop but Dan told me that he has a few manikins for teachers to use during the two-day workshop if more teachers still want to attend!
Workshop participants in latter October will receive a “buy 4 get 1 free” discount coupon from Anatomy In Clay to use to purchase more manikins if desired after the training to use back in their anatomy classrooms! Several hospitals have also helped previous teacher attendees acquire manikin stations for their school to then use over and over since the hands on approach to teaching high school anatomy has encouraged more students to then go into health care fields after high school.
Have teachers call Pam at 620-663-9566 to enroll for the workshop and get further details! I just thought that I would reach out to your biology teachers belonging to your association in case a few would like to attend. Aside from ESSDACK, teachers usually have to go to Denver or Tulsa to get this training!
