Anatomia humana: nova metodologia para o estudo do aparelho locomotor

Cotomacci, G.; Beber, E.H.

ABSTRACT: Objectives: The present study interest to develop an incipient method aimed at undergraduate students of the health sector for better utilization of the teaching-learning process of the skeletal and muscular systems through the correlation and interaction of these issues. Methods: The study was conducted on the dependences of the Human Anatomy laboratories of University Nove de Julho. Students enrolled in Medical Radiology Technology (morning and evening periods) were divided into groups of up to six students. During the practical classes in Human Anatomy each group used synthetic articulated skeletons, cadaveric parts, atlas of anatomy, embroider lines of different colors and adhesive tape. With help of the atlas of anatomy, road map for classroom practice and guidelines of teachers, the ends of the lines were correctly attached in the bone accident already learned indicating and illustrating the origin insert and end insert of each muscle. Results: There was a greater involvement of students in the study of muscles. Another point noted was the best learning of bone accident involved in the study. The new methodology resulted in a greater understanding of the content covered in class, as evidenced by improved performance in practical and theoretical evaluation when compared with students from other classes who did not undergo this activity. Conclusion: The results demonstrated satisfactory in view of better academic performance when compared to other participants. We note that this methodology is simple, inexpensive and easily accessible, since Universities provide synthetic articulated skeletons. It is also suggested an extension of the methodology to other health courses.
