These relationships are commonly referred to as “inverse” in the tutoring dialogues. 1 defines the variables and shows some of the relationships among them. The concept map in Fig. 1 also contains some other information that is visually coded. The shape of the elements provides information about the anatomical nature of the element (cardiac, circulatory, or neural). 1 Cardiovascular Parameters Involved in the Baroreceptor Reflex (Whose Responses Must Be Predicted by the Students) • Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)—The part of the nervous system that innervates the heart and the blood vessels.

There are some important conventions that help in reading a causal concept map like the one in Fig. 1. The arrow from heart W H A T ’ S B E I N G T U T O R E D • 21 FIG. 1. A causal model of the baroreceptor reflex. rate (HR) to cardiac output (CO) indicates that any change in HR causes a change in CO. The plus sign on the arrow means that those changes are always in the same direction. In other words, an increase in HR (if it is the only parameter changing) always results in an increase in CO and a decrease in HR results in a decrease in CO.

Learning the language of the discipline and how that language is used to frame arguments and discussion is also a part of learning the discipline (Frawley, 1988). However, the mere acquisition of facts, regardless of the length of the “laundry list,” does not constitute “understanding” of physiology (Michael, 2001; Michael & Modell, 2003). The “facts” and “concepts” that have been acquired must be organized into mental representations or mental models (Gentner & Stevens, 1983; Lesh & Kelly, 1997; Markman, 1999).
