A Guide to Medical Teaching and Learning Training of the Trainers (TOT)
About the Book
This book helps medical teachers and students develop the best approach to ensure a high level of learning achievement.
Dr. Abdullah Dukhail Al-Khatami begins by outlining the traditional learning model and how it differs from the learner-centered model.
He argues that we must recognize the ineffectiveness of how we’ve taught medical students in the past. The best way to achieve learning, he says, is to encourage learning skills, and collaboration learning between the learners and their supervisours. through the supervision meeting assessment, to identify their learning gap, achievement process, and achievement assessment.
Instead of focusing on surface learning or memorization, learner-centered learning connects current learning to past experiences. That leads to deep learning and helps learners organize information.
This newer approach leverages small groups to further the learning process. Feedback, reflection, and work-based assessments measure achievements. By following the model’s best practices, you’ll be able to:
• prepare trainees to succeed in the field;
• manage your time more efficiently;
• encourage appropriate communication skills and professionalism; and
• convince trainees that goals are achievable.
Filled with checklists, summaries, graphs, exercises, and additional resources, this is a must-have guide for anyone serious about medical education.
