Using Multiple High-Impact Practices to Improve Student Learning in an Undergraduate Health Science Program
Ganesh, Chandrakala; Smith, Jason A.
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v17 n2 p74-84 Apr 2017
Problem-based learning can be an effective educational approach for students entering the health care field. While broadly used in graduate and professional education in the health sciences, it is less widely used in undergraduate programs. We discuss the use of problem-based learning as part of an approach to address failure rates in select Health Sciences courses and poor critical thinking skills. While our results were mixed, we saw an overall improvement in student outcomes. Problem-based learning experiences prepare students better for demands of the real world.
