Abstract

Medical students require higher-order thinking skills to diagnose patient cases. In order to develop expert clinical reasoning skills, students require instructional support; however, activities explicitly facilitating the development of such skills are often overlooked in problem-based learning tutorials. Collaboratively constructed diagrams could provide a framework where students can identify, analyse, interpret and evaluate information from a patient case to develop a diagnosis. A paper prototype for a diagram construction toolkit was developed and tested with 13 students and 4 instructors. Data was collected and analysed to determine if medical students, with no formal visual training, can construct meaningful diagrams of a patient case when they are provided the right tools, and if the constructions can demonstrate tasks associated with higher-order thinking. Suggestions for modifications to create a computer-based version are recommended and future research opportunities are presented.

    HiYa

    How to contact this Brisbourne cat? I just found an article about his “collaborative construction” scheme … I’m beetling away on “Participatory Deliberation” (http://is.dal.ca/~canid/gnodal/ is a stack of docs) after having doodled in scientific visualization of animal movement, exploring taxonomy and categorization.

    Are you into this sort of thing? Forgive the lame question … I only read through this single item in your blog. Please peek my scratchings at http://livejournal.com/~gnodal/

    regards
    ben aka Bernard Tremblay

    p.s. haven’t used my Blogger password for a while … I might have it wrong, so ab006@chebucto.ns.ca or tremben@netscape.net

    Found … though the effort certainly doesn’t compliment the UofA system!

    Hey Ben, you beat me to it, you have his correct e-mail. I’ve let Marc know that he should check this post and your comments.

    best.

    Hello Michael? Bemused by a comment on such an old post? I just started getting SPAM on my netscape.net account and so googled it … only 2 occurences in the clear, 1 of them here, so don’t think that’s causal. Well, not causal for SPAM, but certainly instrumental in something else … it reminded me of this and of you!

    That I’ve not been in touch with you or Marc is indicative … “benign neglect” is, I think, of profound significance in the domain of social economy. A bridge between social-psych and poli-sci? Anyhow, my “Participatory Deliberation” is still worming it’s way forward … I managed to salvage the files that got lost when Dalhousie’s IS2 server was decommissioned (http://bentrem.sycks.net/gnodal/ is where they’re sitting) … and I still (more than ever?) see it’s applicability to such as hypothesis testing / formal testing / pedagogy.

    HeyHo! I just peeked your blogger.com profile and so will move forward from there. (Do you ever do coffee on Whyte? on 9th, at Remedy? or the little cigar cafe?)

    cheers
