Humour and storytelling help students connect with courses in Joan Mills’ classes.
“Joan Mills is balanced on one leg, waving her arms in the air and trying to kick her raised foot.” begins an article in a recent issue of Nursing PRN. “In the heart, there are two upper and two lower chambers,” she explains; “think of my arms as the upper chambers and the lower chambers as my legs.” This is her simple, but entertaining and memorable way of communicating the complexity of how the heart works. The article goes on to say that these types of scenes are not unusual for a Joan Mills classroom. “The charismatic instructor at MacEwan University is known for her sense of humour, her engaging lectures and her physical demonstrations of the heart’s rhythms.”
