ABSTRACT
The successful introduction of an action based learning (ABL) module into the medical ultrasound programme several years ago, has led to further developments using this approach. Conflicting pressures from hospital departments requesting increasing numbers of subject specialty areas to be taught, and university managers requiring modules to be economically viable, resulted in a more creative approach to delivery of the programme. ABL requires students to take responsibility for their own learning, thereby promoting independent learning. This is generally recognised as a more effective method for acquiring knowledge and skills, particularly at postgraduate level. Following completion of the first year of this newly accredited module, the experiences of students and staff were evaluated. Results of the evaluation and feedback demonstrated that students initially struggle to understand the concept of ABL. However, results of student assessments showed that once individuals engage with the process, knowledge and skills can be successfully acquired, demonstrating that this style of learning is a tool which can be potentially used in many aspects of life.</div> </div> <div class="clear"></div> <div class="labels"> <div class="label-title">ACCESSION #</div> <div class="desc">38030499</div> </div> <p> </p> <div id="second-cta"> <a href="http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&authtype=cookie&db=8gh&db=asx&db=b9h&db=bsh&db=bsx&db=bwh&db=ddu&db=e020mna&db=edb&db=edo&db=edsaac&db=edsaah&db=edsace&db=edsafa&db=edsaho&db=edsaih&db=edsair&db=edsaks&db=edsalm&db=edsamb&db=edsamh&db=edsaml&db=edsamo&db=edsamw&db=edsarb&db=edsarc&db=edsard&db=edsare&db=edsatl&db=edsatm&db=edsaul&db=edsavd&db=edsbao&db=edsbas&db=edsbbp&db=edsbbt&db=edsbeb&db=edsbhl&db=edsblc&db=edsbme&db=edsboj&db=edsbps&db=edsbrw&db=edsbzt&db=edscan&db=edscao&db=edscau&db=edscbp&db=edsccr&db=edscdp&db=edscel&db=edscgd&db=edscgf&db=edscha&db=edschs&db=edsclc&db=edsclk&db=edsclt&db=edscnl&db=edscoj&db=edscpi&db=edscra&db=edscrc&db=edscro&db=edscvd&db=edsdar&db=edsdeh&db=edsdeo&db=edsdfl&db=edsdlc&db=edsdmo&db=edsdnt&db=edsdnz&db=edsdom&db=edsdpi&db=edsear&db=edsebr&db=edsecl&db=edseco&db=edseds&db=edseee&db=edsehd&db=edselb&db=edseli&db=edselr&db=edsely&db=edsemm&db=edsemr&db=edseou&db=edserd&db=edseti&db=edseub&db=edseul&db=edseur&db=edsewc&db=edsfis&db=edsfit&db=edsfod&db=edsfrc&db=edsgal&db=edsgbc&db=edsgea&db=edsgec&db=edsggo&db=edsggr&db=edsgij&db=edsgit&db=edsglr&db=edsgml&db=edsgmw&db=edsgnc&db=edsgov&db=edsgrw&db=edsgsb&db=edsgtx&db=edsgvr&db=edsgwp&db=edshar&db=edshbo&db=edshla&db=edshrc&db=edshsd&db=edshui&db=edshwr&db=edsiad&db=edsiag&db=edsiap&db=edsibo&db=edsibw&db=edside&db=edsidm&db=edsimf&db=edsimi&db=edsint&db=edsinv&db=edsipa&db=edsipl&db=edsipr&db=edsjoj&db=edsjov&db=edskan&db=edskbr&db=edskdg&db=edsker&db=edskig&db=edsknv&db=edskot&db=edskrm&db=edskrp&db=edskst&db=edslao&db=edslap&db=edslco&db=edslea&db=edsled&db=edsley&db=edslmc&db=edsloc&db=edslrl&db=edslrn&db=edslxp&db=edsmai&db=edsmbr&db=edsmep&db=edsmfo&db=edsmgd&db=edsmgo&db=edsmib&db=edsmid&db=edsmkl&db=edsmmd&db=edsmob&db=edsmoe&db=edsmoj&db=edsmwo&db=edsnan&db=edsnas&db=edsnav&db=edsnbk&db=edsnbu&db=edsndl&db=edsngv&db=edsnik&db=edsnop&db=edsnor&db=edsnot&db=edsnsm&db=edsnuk&db=edsnum&db=edsnvl&db=edsoaf&db=edsoai&db=edsocl&db=edsocp&db=edsoec&db=edsohw&db=edsoic&db=edsojs&db=edsonp&db=edsopl&db=edsorb&db=edsorl&db=edsotl&db=edsotz&db=edsovi&db=edsoxf&db=edspdq&db=edspeb&db=edspej&db=edspga&db=edspia&db=edspor&db=edspso&db=edspsr&db=edspsy&db=edspub&db=edsrep&db=edsret&db=edsrho&db=edsrom&db=edsrsa&db=edssac&db=edssbc&db=edssbi&db=edssbr&db=edsscb&db=edssch&db=edssco&db=edsshm&db=edsshv&db=edssks&db=edssmd&db=edssol&db=edssrc&db=edssrm&db=edssta&db=edsstb&db=edsstc&db=edsstg&db=edsstp&db=edssun&db=edssvd&db=edssvk&db=edssvl&db=edsswf&db=edsswo&db=edsthw&db=edstor&db=edstox&db=edstoy&db=edstvn&db=edstwa&db=edsucd&db=edsupo&db=edsvbu&db=edsver&db=edsvle&db=edsvlx&db=edsvsi&db=edswao&db=edswbe&db=edswbu&db=edswcl&db=edswcu&db=edswdc&db=edswwo&db=edszac&db=edszad&db=edszae&db=edszan&db=edszap&db=eoah&db=ers&db=f5h&db=kdh&db=kfh&db=neh&db=nlebk&db=nsm&bquery=%28%28SU+%22MEDICINE+--+Study+%26+teaching+%28Continuing+education%29%22%29+OR+%28SU+%22DIAGNOSTIC+ultrasonic+imaging+--+Study+%26+teaching%22%29%29+AND+%28FT+Y%29&type=0&site=ehost-live&scope=site"><img src="/sites/all/themes/ehc/images/citation-cta.png" /></a> </div> </div> <!-- end #reader-info --> </div> <!-- end #reader-wrap --> <h2>Related Articles</h2><ul><li><a href="/c/articles/94601838/current-trends-obstetrics-gynecology-ultrasound-continuing-medical-education">Current Trends in Obstetrics and Gynecology Ultrasound Continuing Medical Education.</a> Aeby, Tod C.; Wong, Shelby; Zalud, Ivica // Donald School Journal of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology;Jan-Mar2014, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p60 <p style="color:#666;font-size:90%;">Continuing medical education (CME), by definition, should contribute to the professional growth and development of the participating healthcare providers.
