Marilyn Dispensa recently co-authored a paper entitled "A Simulation for Teaching the Basic and Clinical Science of Fluid Therapy" recently published in the journal, Advances in Physiology Education.
Prior to coming to work for Information Technology Services as the Instructional Technology Coordinator, Marilyn worked at Cornell for the Faculty Innovation in Teaching Program. In collaboration with faculty in the College of Veterinary Medicine, a simulation was created using the dynamic modeling software, STELLA to help vet students practice fluid management in dogs.
A description of this work as well as the evaluation with students was published in the journal, Advances in Physiology Education.
