EBL, Enquiry Based Learning. Is it for you? watch

    • Thread Starter

    [FONT="Georgia"]The buzzword at my university in theory is EBL. If your not aware Enquiry Based Learning is a process where the learning is directed by the student, firstly in a classroom setting a clinical scenario is set involving Problem Based Learning.

    Secondly, the student will work individually or as a group and have a medical condition or healthcare subject to work with. The subject is chosen from a list generated via the clinical scenario, the student is then set to do some field work during the week.

    Then thirdly reporting back to University with a Powerpoint presentation {or other} detailing the your chosen subject.

    On paper this all sound interesting, and I think it is until feedback day. Around 90% of my class do not think the feed back is beneficial for learning, as the student is thinking on want they are going to present whilst 'switching off' during the students presentations.

    The above may well be familiar to many of you, but I want to know what you think about this form of education. Are the lectures putting in enough graft and support? Do you really learn beyond the subject you've explored? Do you use other students work as a revision aid? I would really appreciate your comments. I am writing an EBL blog for a nursing paper, so will construct it around comments made and my personal view.

    Thanks very much.
