Lecture in a box: Understand vaccine basics & the details of the vaccines used for COVID-19 by Microbiology author Kelly Cowan
COVID-19 has challenged everyone to understand how vaccines work and how we can ensure their safety. This talk from microbiology author Marjorie Kelly Cowan is an update of her early summer talk and provides vaccine basics and then the particulars of the vaccines used for COVID-19. Be sure that your students have access to an authoritative source of information amongst all the noise in the cybersphere concerning vaccines, with this 38-minute video pulling on concepts and figures from her microbiology textbooks.If you would like to view this lecture visually, click here: https://www.mheducation.com/highered/highered/discipline-detail/microbiology/vaccines-and-covid-19.htmlAbout the AuthorKelly Cowan has taught microbiology to pre-nursing and allied health students for over 20 years. She received her PhD from the University of Louisville and held postdoctoral positions at the University of Maryland and the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Her campus, Miami University Middletown, is an open admissions regional campus of Miami University in Ohio. She has also authored over 25 basic research papers with her undergraduate and graduate students.

How to answer the question "Why"?
As instructors teaching the non-majors microbiology student you often hear “why do I need to know this”? Bringing relevancy into the course can sometimes be difficult due to time constraints of all kinds. McGraw Hill helps instructors bring relevancy into the classroom with Relevancy Modules that can be assigned within Connect. Learn how Dr. Dorothy Wood of Durham Technical College engages her students with these easy to use and interesting modules covering topics like Vaccines, Biotechnology Antibiotic Resistance, SARS-CoV2 and more.

Let's Talk Vaccines and COVID-19 – Lecture in a Box
Scientists have produced effective vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19. The speed with which the vaccines were produced is unprecedented, and that makes some worry that they were “rushed through” and may not be safe or effective. This mini-lecture reviews vaccine biology and discusses how the current vaccines were made and assessed and discusses their safety profile now that they are being administered to the public.To see this talk visually, click here! https://www.mheducation.com/highered/highered/discipline-detail/microbiology/vaccines-and-covid-19.htmlAbout the AuthorKelly Cowan has taught microbiology to pre-nursing and allied health students for over 20 years.

Lecture in a Box: Epidemiology of a Pandemic
Check out this awesome lecture from Kelly Cowan. The live lecture link is below, if you want to view it with visuals. Enjoy! Instructors - with everything else you are handling during this bizarre semester, brushing up on your epidemiology may not be high on your list. But students have been bombarded with a lot of information (good and bad) about how pandemics work, and they will probably be looking to you for answers. I have taught epidemiology to undergraduates for over 20 years, and I put together a little 30-minute lecture that you can pop in to your course, pain-free! In this lecture, with clear slides and narration by me, your students will get information on what epidemiology actually is, how SARS-CoV-2 how screening tests work (including specificity vs. sensitivity), why some people get sick and others don't, herd immunity, contact tracing, vaccine preparation, and more.https://www.mheducation.com/highered/highered/discipline-detail/microbiology/epidemiology-for-a-pandemic.htmlKelly Cowan has taught microbiology to pre-nursing and allied health students for over 20 years.
