Multimodal approaches (seeing, feeling, and hearing) to learning aid in the capture of students with different learning styles and lock in multiple conceptual aspects. With the use of hands-on ultrasound, students of anatomy and physiology are transformed from spectators to real-time participants. Ultrasound provides real-time visualization of anatomic and physiological principles. In this engaging session, attendees will experience firsthand how multimodal team-based learning principles and ultrasound deepen understanding. Learners, each with a defined but fluid role, work as a group to progress through the lesson. These roles include ultrasound image capture on live models, artistic re-creation of images, and conceptual understanding through instructor-guided discussions. The cardiovascular system will serve as a model to demonstrate these techniques. These interactive multimodal techniques are applicable to many subjects and settings.
