In Support of Excellence

It's all about the students

Pharmacology and the Final Word from the students of Oral Health

Wait….but there’s more! I introduced Dr Abdallah Salem of Pharmacology to this JiTT/Articulate model when he received a L&T Implementation grant in 2009-10 to use Articulate to integrate functionalities available within MyUni. The aim was to develop online workshop assessment materials which were both formative and summative online assessment. Abdallah reported there were quite a few positive comments about the Articulate modules when students were asked the open ended question, “What was the best aspects of the course”.

However, the final word on JiTT and ILMs is from the students. We have now shifted the emphasis from teacher centric to student centric and we are calling the pedagogy Effective Pre Lecture Engagement (EPLE). Please hear the students themselves talk about how much they appreciate ILMs. How they consolidate the knowledge with Checkpoints (short frequent formative quizzes) and they reinforce the key concepts. Another says they build self-confidence and they want the majority of their lectures as ILMs.  A great final comment from the student is – “they work for me”.
