Learning through photos
The students in our Wednesday evening EMT-I class participated in a photo shoot for EMS Magazine. After I sent an email asking for students to come to class in uniform--and for some prepared to bare their chests for the sake of education--the photoshoot began.
We shot a sequence for a CE article on thoracic injuries and an article on intraosseous infusion. Marc Minkler, who instructs the class, served as technical advisor and author of the article on IOs.
The students saw a shoot, learned procedures like trauma assessment and how to do IOs, and spent some time outside. Time outside is always a popular thing.
