This post, and it’s accompanying post for A&P II are designed as a repository for resources used when teaching A&P to paramedic students. At Fanshawe College we use an entirely flipped curriculum, and use class time to complete learning activities that help to reinforce learning. These activities are also outlined in the various sections below. The online component of the course provides access to a wide range of self-directed resources, including podcasts, videos, crosswords, quizzes, flashcards, and PowerPoint presentations. Shared here are the links to these resources, and some of my own created or derivative works. You are free to use these items within the terms of their original licence, and you are free to use materials created by me under a Creative Commons BY-NC 4.0 licence (
