Perception of Medical Students on an Activity Done to Promote Interaction in Large Classes

Edussuriya DH | Rajapakshe RAMD


Abstract: Current trends in medical education require a focus on active learning, critical thinking, collaborative learning and problem solving which are fostered by an interactive learning environment. However, as the number of students per class increase creating interactive environments has become a challenge in the 21st century. The objective of the study was to determine student perceptions on an activity done to promote interaction in a class with a large number of students. Two semi-interactive teaching learning activities were conducted and feedback was obtained using a self-administered questionnaire. Analysis revealed that the students have a positive perception on the activity. Logistical issues such as guidance for group work and maintaining effective channels of communication needs to be addressed when conducting such activities. Students complaints regarding inadequate time for preparation for such activity may indicate that the curriculum is overcrowded.
