New methods of teaching and learning are constantly being sought in the adult learning environment. Audience Response Systems (ARS) have been used in many different learning environments, especially in the field of medical education. The objective of this investigation was to ascertain the effect of ARS use in undergraduate teaching
Background and aim: Audience response (AR) systems are increasingly used in undergraduate medical education. However, high costs and complexity of conventional AR systems often limit their use. Here we present a novel AR system that is platform independent and does not require hardware clickers or additional software to be installed.
Audience response systems (ARS) are increasingly being used to heighten participants' involvement. Knowledge of technical and pedagogical challenges is, however, limited. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate ARS as a tool for 1) evaluation, 2) knowledge testing, 3) attention raising and 4) discussion stimulation.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:
ARS was used
AbstractFollowing the "Guidelines for reporting TBL" by Haidet et al, we report on a team-based learning TBL course we adopted for our 4th-year students in 2011. Our TBL course is a modified version of the one suggested in the guidelines, but its structure generally follows the core elements described therein.
