Dr. Lokesh. S*

ABSTRACT

Introduction: we live in an era of uncontrolled and accelerating changes and an age in which technology has raced ahead. In these days with a shortage of teachers and patients with all classical manifestation of a given disease, use of Audio-Visual Aids (AVA) in clinical bed side teaching has made a big impact on undergraduate teaching. Aims: We evaluated the usefulness of audio-visual aids in undergraduate clinical teaching. Material and Methods: All the undergraduate students of various semester posted in the Department of General Medicine from 01st September 2014 to 30th December 2014 were enrolled in the study. The students were divided into two groups, one receiving traditional clinical teaching and the other assisted with audio visual aids. The learning outcome was assessed using simple questionnaires which included questions on the topic discussed. The Teaching Outcome forms and Feedback forms were collected from the students and analyzed. The results: The students who underwent teaching assisted with audio visual aids had a better teaching outcome in terms of reproducibility. The feedbacks from students favor the utilization of audio visual aids in clinical instruction. Conclusion: Incorporating audio-visual aids in clinical teaching are a potential tool in delivering the medical knowledge and skills.

Keywords: AVA – Audio-Visual Aids, Medical Knowledge, Teaching outcome, Reproducibility.
