Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
F.A. Davis Company, recognized as a leader in the word-building approach to medical terminology announces the launch of The Medical Language Lab at http://www.medicallanguagelab.com.
The Medical Language Lab is a new, interactive, online program for mastering the language of medicine that works hand-in-hand with two of the Company’s leading medical terminology texts, Medical Terminology Systems: A Body Systems Approach, 7th Edition by Barbara A. Gylys and Mary Ellen Wedding, published in December 2012 and Medical Language: Terminology in Context by Melodie Hull, publishing in February 2013.
Based on proven language methodology, it uses today’s most advanced adaptive learning technology to make it easier for students to learn and instructors to teach. It assures students are equally skilled at reading, writing, and speaking by working through a series of exercises and activities that assesses their level of mastery in each area. Each lesson corresponds to a specific chapter in their text. Instructors are able to monitor each student’s progress and identify areas of strength and weakness.
A special code in the front of these new books unlocks The Medical Language Lab for students. Instructors can customize it to meet the needs of their individual courses and use it with their current learning management systems or with its integrated grade book. Access can also be purchased separately.
“The Medical Language Lab is a learning environment that has been informed by actual studies in language acquisition,” explains Quincy McDonald, Senior Acquisitions Editor for Health Professions and Medicine. “The materials are progressive and tutorial in nature; each step guides students step by step from basic through advanced levels of proficiency to become confident medical language speakers.”
These titles are available at bookstores or directly from F.A. Davis Company.
