Designing a clinical skills training laboratory with focus on video for better learning

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Objective
The principles of apprenticeship in clinical skills training are increasingly being challenged. First, most students are proficient in learning from visual multimedia and will expect this to be part of a modern university education. Second, students will often find visual teaching resources of varying quality on the internet if this is not made available during teaching. The objective of this project was to design a new clinical skills laboratory with IT and video facilities to support learning processes.

Methods
Teaching principles were described before decisions on the design of the skills training laboratory was made. The principles included video in different instructional designs:

1. Teacher-produced video podcasts
2. Group work using video
3. Formative assessment using video
4. Practicing skills using video

Each principle was described using a template focusing on (a) objectives, (b) FAIR principle, (c) description of before-under-after procedures, and (d) requirements specifications. IT-companies were invited to provide technological solutions and make bids.

Results
Four teaching principles were developed with specific IT requirements specifications. The meeting process with IT-companies resulted in novel ideas about laboratory design consisting of “skills training islands” utilizing iPads, AppleTVs, big screens and a secure multimedia server.

Conclusion
We successfully designed and implemented IT and video into a novel ‘easy-to-use’ clinical skills laboratory based on a priori described teaching and learning designs related to active learning principles. This was a complex process involving teachers, IT-experts, e-learning specialists and a variety of university employees.
