Head Injuries Project Multimedia

P: n/a
All,

I am in the final part of a Masters' degree in Multimedia. My dissertation
begins.

"Why should we think that Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) using multimedia
would be effective in teaching in a hospital? Hamilton, Furnace, Duguid,
Helms & Simpson (1999) reported that in the Faculty of Medicine and Medical
Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, there were over 150 IT based
learning resource in their curriculum and course evaluation, which have been
positively received by the students. There goal was to cope with the
increase in student numbers whilst maintaining or improving the quality of
medical teaching. Also, Asan (2003) found that teaching using multimedia
tutorial leads to a positive difference when compared to the same course
using traditional lecturing".

I am involved in a pilot Head Injuries study being carried out as part of a
wider research project by the University of Gloucestershire. The wider study
is designed to assist the development of multimedia software, in support of
Junior Doctors' training at Cheltenham General Hospital. In this pilot
study, it is primarily the use of multimedia that is being tested and not
the evaluation of the teaching materials.

If you want to take part in the pilot scheme then go to the following URL:

What's in it for you, I hear you ask? Well three things really:

Find out what your Learning Style Preference is.
Contribute to improving teaching for junior doctors (detecting the
difference between someone in a coma and someone who is drunk -
could make a difference between life and death).
A chance to win a 25 book token - to be drawn on or around the
30th of November 2003.
Yours Sincerely
