  4. 4. The journey towards understanding : exploring the interplay between teaching and learning

    Author : Maria Weurlander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis explores students’ journey towards understanding throughout a nineweek course in their second year of an undergraduate medical programme. Although the investigation was undertaken in the context of a medical curriculum, the overall aim, to investigate the development of students’ experiences of learning and understanding, relates to issues in higher education in general.

  5. 5. Dynamiskt lärande : En ämnesdidaktisk avhandling om fysiologiska fenomen och läkarstudentens lärande

    Author : Anna Fyrenius; Staffan Wirell; Eva Nylander; Charlotte Silén; Kirsten Hofgaard Lycke; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lärande; Förståelse; Fysiologi; Clinical physiology; Klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : It is well known that the outcome of teaching and learning in higher education is often unsatisfactory. Earlier studies have shown that medical students often have a surface approach to their studies and that misconceptions of fundamental physiological phenomena are common. READ MORE
