A Method of Improving Student Learning in Physiology: The Small Group Workshop.
McKinley, Charles J.; Stoll, William R.
Advances in Physiology Education, v11 n1 pS16-S23 Jun 1994
Describes a teaching innovation by way of replacing standard physiology laboratories with small group workshop tasks dealing with selected physiology problems and data. Students focus on establishing a knowledge base and solving problems relating to physiology. Initial experiences show improved student motivation and attitude, and improved feedback to students. Major benefits of this approach include self-reliance and improved interest in related subject material. (PVD)
