VIDEOS FOR PARKLAND ONLINE COURSE -- BIO 120 (The Fundamentals of Nutrition)
“Hello” from Toni Burkhalter (the instructor in many of the videos). Although I am not writing a formal review of the videos, the information below may help viewers decide if this video series would be of interest. Parkland College faculty and staff along with credible RDs and PhDs in nutrition came together to create several half-hour video programs. The scripts were written with the BIO 120 (Fundamentals of Nutrition) students at Parkland College in mind. The videos are tailored to Parkland students’ academic needs using information from USDA, FDA and other US government agencies to guide the topics presented in the videos. The videos are a subset of the overall class and walk students through the material in a stepwise fashion at a slower pace that allows students to take notes on the most important concepts with ease. It is a non-traditional lecture format chosen to provide online students a solid foundation in the topic so we can further discuss hot topics with additional information in the online forum.
Toni Burkhalter is a phenomenal instructor. She teaches with a lot of enthusiasm, has a lot of passion and will keep you engaged through out the entire semester. I took her Bio 120 in house class at Parkland College. I constantly referred to the above videos on Itunes to help me retain information that I was not able to understand during her lectures. I highy recommend this instructor. Regarding the previous review; the United States Dept of Agriculture recommends all age groups consume 2-3 servings of dairy per day. I have taken three in house classes with this instructor and I have never witnessed any of her curriculum to contain 'old information'. Toni Burkhalter revises her course material every semester and only uses information that has been scientifically proven. In my opinion, she is highly creditable. I am not sure why the previous review stated that she is malnourished because that is far from the truth.
To slow - some info incorrect
3 Servings of dairy everyday? No wonder the moderator is clearly malnourished. The intro is full of old information and does not show what a healthy diet entails.
