Students Perception towards Different Teaching Aids in a Medical College

S N Baxi, C J Shah, R D Parmar, D Parmar, CB Tripathi


Medical teachers have conventionally been using different teaching
methods to educate medical students previously dominated by blackboard
and slide projectors. More recently audiovisual aids such as videotapes
and multimedia have been introduced. Critics of multimedia feel
that it is expensive, too time consuming, and isn’t worth the time and
effort.1 A learner’s learning style, whether visual, auditory or kinesthetic,
is usually resistant to change.2 Hence it is likely that mismatches exist
between the learning styles of medical students and the teaching styles
of medical teachers.
This study was undertaken to determine 2nd-year medical student
teaching-aid preferences during classroom instruction in a medical college
in India.
