Carroll, Robert G.; Huang, Alice H.
Advances in Physiology Education, v18 n1 pS14-S23 Dec 1997
Discusses self-learning exercises (SLEs) incorporated into the Medical Physiology course for first-year students at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA. Twenty to thirty percent of course material is presented in these exercises instead of in lectures. The exercises develop active learning and problem-solving skills. Formal analysis showed that SLEs did not significantly impair learning. (Author/AIM)
