2. Develop and implement assessment techniques such as quizzes, assignments, and tests. 2. Implementation of social media in Human Anatomy lab. 
3. Learn to effectively use clickers as a teaching tool in a large lecture-style setting. 3. Become more comfortable with teaching, more specifically, lecturing large classes.
