Bhandari, Bharti; Chopra, Deepti; Singh, Kavita – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
The introduction of Competency-Based Medical Education Curriculum in India has endorsed many new concepts, like foundation course, self-directed learning (SDL), early clinical exposure, etc. Emphasis is being given to active teaching-learning approaches. One such approach is SDL. SDL is an active learning approach in which the students are…

Muthukrishnan, Suriya Prakash; Chandran, Dinu S.; Afreen, Naaz; Bir, Megha; Dastidar, Shaon Ghosh; Jayappa, Harsith; Mattoo, Bhawna; Navneet, Arvind; Poorasamy, Jeevitha; Roy, Atanu; Sharma, Anju; Ghosh, Debabrata; Deepak, Kishore K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Didactic lecture is an effective method to quickly pass on a high volume of information to a large number of students. However, if not well designed, lectures can be monotonous and provide only passive learning, with little scope for higher order learning skills. To address this drawback of lectures, we supplemented it with case-based learning…

Powell, Jacqueline M.; Murray, Ian V. J.; Johal, Jaspreet; Elks, Martha L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Physiology is one of the major foundational sciences for the medical curriculum. This discipline has proven challenging for students to master due to ineffective content acquisition and retention. Preliminary data obtained from a survey completed by "low-performance" students (those maintaining a grade average below the passing mark of…

Hopper, Mari K.; Kaiser, Alexis N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The primary aim of this study was to determine whether levels of student engagement, higher order skill proficiency, and knowledge acquisition demonstrated by medical students would differ when completing the same course in three diverse learning environments. Following Institutional Review Board approval, 56 first-year medical students,…

Zoller, Jonathan K.; He, Jianghua; Ballew, Angela T.; Orr, Walter N.; Flynn, Brigid C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
The present study furthered the concept of simulation-based medical education by applying a personalized active learning component. We tested this novel approach utilizing a noninvasive hemodynamic monitor with the capability to measure and display in real time numerous hemodynamic parameters in the exercising participant. Changes in medical…

Mumtaz, Sadaf; Latif, Rabia – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
We explored medical student's views and perceptions of a series of debates conducted during problem-based learning (PBL) practiced as a part of the Spiral curriculum at the Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Saudi Arabia. A series of debates were employed during PBL sessions for second-year female medical students, over the period 2014-2016.…

Montrezor, Luís H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
The evaluation process is complex and extremely important in the teaching/learning process. Evaluations are constantly employed in the classroom to assist students in the learning process and to help teachers improve the teaching process. The use of active methodologies encourages students to participate in the learning process, encourages…

Kibble, Jonathan D.; Bellew, Christine; Asmar, Abdo; Barkley, Lisa – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
The goal of this review is to highlight the key elements needed to successfully deploy team-based learning (TBL) in any class, but especially in large enrolment classes, where smooth logistics are essential. The text is based on a lecture and workshop given at the American Physiological Society's Institute on Teaching and Learning in Madison, WI,…

Tsang, Alexander; Harris, David M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
Patients expect physicians to be lifelong learners who are able to interpret and evaluate diagnostic tests, and most medical schools list the development of lifelong learning in their program objectives. However, lecture is the most often utilized form of teaching in the first two years and is considered passive learning. The current generation of…

Kukolja Taradi, S.; Taradi, M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
The goal of the present study was to determine whether an active learning/teaching strategy facilitated with mobile technologies can improve students' levels of memory retention of key physiological concepts. We used a quasiexperimental pretest/posttest nonequivalent group design to compare the test performances of second-year medical students (n…

Li, Andrew Yue-Lin; Carvalho, Helena – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
Prevalent in 20-57% of stroke patients, visual field defects have been shown to impact quality of life. Studies have shown increased risk of falling, ambulatory difficulties, impaired reading ability, and feelings of panic in crowded or unfamiliar places in patients with visual field defects. Rehabilitation, independence, and mental health may…

Ramirez, Beatriz U. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
In previous studies, correlations between attendance and grades in lectures have given variable results and, when statistically significant, the correlation has been weak. In some studies, a sex effect has been reported. Lectures are a teacher-centered learning activity. Therefore, it appeared interesting to evaluate if a stronger correlation…

Khalil, Mohammed K.; Kibble, Jonathan D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
This is a reflective essay based on the experience of developing a structure and function module within a new integrated medical curriculum. Our hope is that the insights we gained during a 4-yr journey in a new medical school will be transferable to others engaged with curriculum development. Here, we present an interpretive analysis of our…

Longmuir, Kenneth J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
In this project, the traditional lecture hall presentation of acid-base physiology in the first-year medical school curriculum was replaced by interactive, computer-assisted instruction designed primarily for the iPad and other mobile computer platforms. Three learning modules were developed, each with ~20 screens of information, on the subjects…

Hodgson, Yvonne; Choate, Julia – Advances in Physiology Education, 2012
The Finapres finger cuff recording system provides continuous calculations of beat-to-beat variations in cardiac output (CO), total peripheral resistance, heart rate (HR), and blood pressure (BP). This system is unique in that it allows experimental subjects to immediately, continuously, and noninvasively visualize changes in CO at rest and during…
