Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Background of this project is the creation a new textbook „Methods of Effective Learning“ in Medical faculties. It is new book with integration of modern methods of brain-compatible teaching and learning. The textbook will be available for all teachers and students, who want to learn how to study for long taking knowledge, not only for study, but even in future practice. Brain-compatible teaching and learning is the new approach of teaching characterized as a new field in teaching and learning focused on new methods It will be a brand-new book with integration of modern methods of brain-compatible teaching and learning with analysing of ways of teaching and learning in nowadays universities.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is an application of new methods into teaching and learning. Project is solving new pedagogical and didactical field in conditions of Medical faculties.
What techniques and methods are used?
No special techniques and methods are used. Requared information about the new ways of teaching and learning will be published in a small book. Students will use the method in home study and preparing for lessons. The expected results are an increase of knowledge retention of students from Anatomy that students will use not only for passing of final exam, but for their next clinical subjects, and especially for their future clinical practice.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks of the student will be performed on his/her own
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Study different available literature regarding the brain-compatible teaching and learning for long term memory. Find and document how to learn and study for long taking knowledge. Students will use this method in home study and preparing for the lessons. The expected results are an increase of knowledge retention of students from Anatomy that students will use not only for passing of final exam or for their next clinical subjects, but especially for their future clinical practice.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
No special theoretical teaching.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- No specific outcome is expected
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
No special skills
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
