PaperFree Medicine and AP Teachers
While Advanced Placement classes are challenging to high school students, they're not exactly easy for the teachers either! USF's David C. Anchin Center and the College of Education recently hosted the AP Summer Institute, and this week's University Beat on WUSF takes you inside the classrooms and laboratories and speaks to some of the teachers, ranging from first-time AP instructors looking for pointers to long-time veterans refreshing their skills.
USF Health is taking a leading role in changing the face of healthcare through a new public-private partnership called "PaperFree Tampa Bay." This week's University Beat tells you how USF Health is trying to get physicians in the Bay area to convert from paper prescriptions to electronic prescribing, which will improve patient safety and eventually reduce costs.
Brian Mann, the Associate Director of the USF Anchin Center and Director for the Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI), talks about the Institute's opening day School Superintendents' Roundtable and how hosting the APSI benefits USF.
A pair of new AP teachers, Courtney Stuckwisch (English, G.W. Carver HS in New Orleans) & Valery Louisdhon (Chemistry, King HS in Tampa), explain what they were learning in the classroom and the laboratory.
Courtney Stuckwisch on her experiences with "Teach For America" and as a teacher in New Orleans' Upper Ninth Ward.
Genevieve Delfosse, an APSI instructor and French teacher at Jefferson HS in Alexandria, VA, talks about the advantages of "immersion teaching" for foreign languages.
