ABSTRACT: Internet-based learning and applications for critical care medicine. [J Intensive Care Med. 2012 Sep-Oct] – PubMed – NCBI

RESULTS: The growth of the Internet is marked by the development of new technologies, including more user-derived tools. Nonmedical fields have embraced Internet-based learning as a valuable teaching tool. A recent meta-analysis described Internet-based learning in the medical field as being more effective than no intervention and likely as efficacious as

ABSTRACT: A randomized controlled trial of two different types of web-based instructional methods [Med Teach. 2012] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract BACKGROUND: Computer-based learning (CBL) is an effective form of medical education. Educators have developed recommendations for instructional design but there is only minimal research that evaluates these recommendations. AIM: To evaluate the effect of case-based questions contained in computer modules on learning efficacy. METHODS: The authors conducted a randomized controlled trial in 124 medical students

MANUSCRIPT: Workplace learning

Abstract This critical review found Dutch research to be strong at the undergraduate and residency levels and more or less absent in continuing medical education. It  confirms the importance of coaching medical students, giving constructive feedback, and ensuring practice environments are conducive to learning though it has proved hard to improve them. Residents learn primarily

MANUSCRIPT: Academic self-efficacy: from educational theory to instructional practice

Abstract Self-efficacy is a personal belief in one’s capability to organize and execute courses of action required to attain designated types of performances. Often described as task-specific self-confidence, self-efficacy has been a key component in theories of motivation and learning in varied contexts. Furthermore, over the last 34 years, educational researchers from diverse fields of

MANUSCRIPT: Motivation in medical students: a PhD thesis report

Abstract The aims of this thesis were to gather insights and investigate the factors influencing, outcomes and applications of medical students’ motivation. This thesis consists of three literature reviews, four research papers and two application papers. Two research studies investigated the relationships of student motivation with study s rategy, effort and academic performance through structural

ABSTRACT: Mobile Tablet Use among Academic Physicians and Trainees [J Med Syst. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract The rapid adoption rate and integration of mobile technology (tablet computing devices and smartphones) by physicians is reshaping the current clinical landscape. These devices have sparked an evolution in a variety of arenas, including educational media dissemination, remote patient data access and point of care applications. Quantifying usage patterns of

ABSTRACT: Divergence in student and educator conceptual structures during auscultation training [Med Educ. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract Context  Simulation-based medical education allows trainees to engage in self-regulated learning (SRL), yet research aimed at elucidating the mechanisms of SRL in this context is relatively absent. We compared 'unguided' SRL with 'directed' SRL (DSRL), wherein learners followed an expert-designed booklet. Methods  Year 1 medical students (n = 37) were randomly assigned to

ABSTRACT: Open-book tests: Search behaviour, time used and test scores. [Med Teach. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract Background: Because of the increasing medical knowledge and the focus of medical education on acquiring competencies, the use of open-book tests seems inevitable. Dealing with a large body of information, indicating which kind of information is needed to solve a problem, and finding and understanding that knowledge at the right

ABSTRACT: Team-based learning: A practical guide: Guide Supplement 65.1 [Med Teach. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract The practical aspects and potential benefits of team-based learning (TBL) are outlined on the recent guide published by Parmelee et al. (2012). TBL provides a strategy for active student-centred collaborative learning which involves multiple small groups in a single classroom setting, incorporating many of the adult approaches to learning, more frequently

ABSTRACT: Methods and Effects of a Case-based Pediatric Gastroenterology Online Curriculum. [J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

Abstract OBJECTIVES: Asynchronous learning, using Web-based instruction, is developing a growing role in medical education. Restrictions on resident work hours continue to require restructuring of formal educational activities in many programs. The objectives of this curriculum development project was to determine whether using blended learning with case-based online modules supplemented by faculty-facilitated
