An Investigation into Students' Viewpoints regarding the Utilization of Chalk and Board Versus PowerPoint Presentation (PPT) Techniques for Delivering Lectures

Suchitra S [3]


Abstract: The transformation in medical education from traditional to modern teaching methods has sparked debates about the efficacy of chalk and board versus PowerPoint (PPT) techniques. This study explores 122 medical students' perspectives, comparing the two methods based on parameters such as preference, clarity, interest stimulation, reproducibility, and continuity of lectures. Results reveal a predominant use of PPT for theory classes and chalk and board for practical sessions. Students express a preference for chalk and board, citing its effectiveness in evoking interest, aiding understanding, note - taking, and emphasizing key points. Notably, 60% of students assert that chalk and board enhance student - teacher interaction. In contrast, 45% prefer PPT for teaching clinical conditions. The overall rating of chalk and board (7.6/10) surpasses that of PPT (5.5/10), emphasizing its higher perceived effectiveness. The findings underscore the importance of incorporating student perspectives and advocate for a balanced integration of traditional and modern teaching methods in medical education. This research informs educators and institutions seeking to optimize pedagogical practices for enhanced student engagement and learning outcomes.
