Where does 3D printing fit into your pedagogical thinking?

Mike retired from Atlantic Cape Community College in 2003 as Dean of Academic Computing and Distance Education. He has continued to teach an online Human Body lecture and lab course for Atlantic Cape and also teaches an online Histology course and an Anatomy and Physiology lecture and lab online course for The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) from his home in Ocean City, NJ. While at UTEP, he was the Associate Vice President for Instructional Technology and a tenured professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. Mike has enjoyed approaching online course development and teaching from the scholarly perspective and has made conference presentations over the past few years on utilizing retrieval practice and 3D anatomy images in his online course offerings. Mike was asked last year by UTEP to teach several online courses for their faculty on online course design and instruction and has been asked to teach another faculty online training course during summer 2013 for The University of Texas at San Antonio. Mike was also interested in learning how to make ePub files and self-published three iChapbooks of poetry last year and they are now available on the iTunes bookstore. His interest in 3D printing has focused on how virtual learning objects can be made into real things and how 3D printing has the potential to change what we can do in the online as well as traditional classroom and laboratory setting.
