Title
Learning approaches in a traditional curriculum at senior student level may be responsive to practice-based learning in the primary care setting
Author
Abstract
WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN IN THIS AREA In traditional undergraduate curricula we face the challenge to assist future doctors to make the U turn from largely lecture-based learning to learning from experience. Learning style inventories can be used to initiate change in student approaches to learning. WHAT THIS WORK ADDS Changing the educational context to practical-based learning and small group teaching in the primary care setting resulted in a significant shift to a deeper approach to learning. SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH Further research is needed to test for concurrent validity of our findings in comparable cohorts Long-running cohort studies would be able to show if effects on learning styles are long-lasting.
