LEARNING METHODS

 

I.    ONE WAY TEACHING METHODS

 

Lecture With Audio Visual Aids

          Majority of the theory hours are conducted in this method


II.   TWO WAY INTERACTIONS 

Tutorials

          Tutorials are conducted weekly once by dividing the students into 5 groups

Seminars

           Different topics are given to different group of students for improving student’s learning process


III.    LEARNING BY DOING

 

Self Study

          In the quiz certain questions on recent changes in the field of community medicine are included to induce self directed learning. Open Book examination is also conducted to improve learning

Practical Exercise

           Demonstration on models, charts, specimens etc in the department museum

Assignment

            Different topics are given to improve student’s learning process

 

IV.     INTEGRATE/ INTERDISCIPLINARY LEARNING

                

      It is considered as a part of college curriculum and objectives of industrial visit is to provide students an insight regarding internal working of companies. We know, theoretical knowledge is not enough for making a good professional career. With an aim to go beyond academics, industrial visit provides student a practical perspective on the world of work. 

 We provide Integrated learning by conducting study tour in various institution like milk pasteurization plant , water purification plant , sewage treatment plant , other industrial units.

 

 

V.     PROBLEM BASED LEARNING

            Problem based learning is a real part of curriculum. It provides opportunities to use their newly acquired knowledge in meaningful, real life activities and assist them in working at higher levels of thinking. Based on this, 5 problems are given to IV BHMS students. They have to submit the problems along with its resolution. Problems related with incidence rate, crude death rate etc are given and resolutions also prepared.

 

VI. SIMULATION BASED LEARNING

         Simulation learning allows students to practice critical work skills in a controlled environment.  The students are attending the skill lab and training will be given to the students on the topics scheduled in the academic calender.

 

 

VII. LEARNING IN HUMANITIES

Learning in Humanities are applied by posting the students in the Peripheral Health Centres of college for clinical study and case taking thus students are interrogating with the patient to understand the presenting complaints,  the diagnosis, and prescription of medicines. Posting will be scheduled in such a manner that all the students are getting chance to attend the Peripheral Health Centres. The students are asked to submit the case records in the department after attending the Centres.

 

VIII. ROLE PLAY

           Role playing is a learning structure that allows students to immediately apply content as they are put in the role of a decision maker who must make a decision regarding a policy, resource allocation, or some other outcome. This technique is an excellent tool for engaging students and allowing them to interact with their peers as they try to complete the task assigned to them in their specific role. This work can be done in cooperative groups and/or students can maintain the persona of their role throughout the class period. Students are more engaged as they try to respond to the material from the perspective of their character. Topics will be given to students to perform on stage as given in the department academic schedule.

 

IX.  PARTICIPATORY LEARNING

 

         The aim of Participatory learning is to identify developmental and environmental factors that enable competency and resiliency in children and people. There was emphasis on defining priority targets for existing and future health, education and social services. Also to build an epidemiological knowledge-base from which preventive strategies can be developed to facilitate the social, emotional, academic and vocational competency of people.

 

·       Group Discussion  

 The students are given opportunity for interaction through Group discussion

 

   ·        HEALTH SURVEY

AIM: The aim of Participatory learning is to identify developmental and environmental factors that enable competency and resiliency in children and  people. There was emphasis on defining priority targets for existing and future health, education and social services. Also to build an epidemiological knowledge-base from which preventive strategies can be developed to facilitate the social, emotional, academic and vocational competency of people.

The specific aims of the survey were to:

·      describe and define the health and well being of children and  people

·      estimate the prevalence and distribution of commonly occurring chronic medical conditions and disabilities and describe how they may affect a child’s wellbeing and functioning

·       estimate the prevalence, distribution and functional impact of common physical health, social and emotional problems in children and young people aged and their families

·      estimate the prevalence and distribution of adverse health behaviours (e.g. smoking, alcohol, drug and volatile substance misuse)

·        estimate the prevalence and distribution of other psychosocial problems, such as early school leaving, conduct problems, and juvenile offending describe children, as well as people and their families’ access to, effective use of, and satisfaction with health care, education, juvenile justice, housing and social services identify factors resulting in protection from poor health and social and emotional wellbeing, adverse health behaviours and other psychosocial problems develop estimates of risk and markers identifying children and  people at increased risk for various health, educational and vocational outcomes. 

Outcome:

Participatory learning helps the students to gather valid and reliable clinically meaningful data that have many uses, such as targeting quality improvement activities and resources; monitoring health plan performance and rewarding top-performing health plans; helping beneficiaries make informed health care choices; and advancing the science of functional health outcomes measurement. Other benefits are

            ·      ability to apply learning to research work,

·      communication skills,

·      awareness about local epidemiology of disease,

·      awareness of  health care seeking behavior,

·      awareness of survey techniques.
