In this presentation, educators will learn the importance of palpation in the classroom and beyond, how to present unique ideas for teaching palpatory anatomy to students using different learning styles, Trail Guide to the Body tools and technology, and how to use this presentation as a platform for participants to share the exercises or resources that have been successful for them in palpation education.
