Computer Assisted Instruction in Air Force Medical Training: Preliminary Findings.
Steinkerchner, Raymond E.; Deignan, Gerard M.
An experimental problem-oriented medical curriculum was developed and administered by means of PLATO IV computer terminals to students enrolled in a Physician Assistant course. This report provided information required to determine if subsequent in-depth study of the comparative effectiveness of computer-assisted instruction as opposed to alternative conventional modes of instruction was warranted. This information includes development procedures, implementation conditions, student reactions, lessons learned, and cost data analyzed by Air Force health care scientists. (Author/DAG)
