Educational Technologies in Medical and Health Sciences Education (Hardcover)
About this item
This book presents and analyses studies that examine educational technologies in medical and health sciences education leading to applied, clinical practice. Authors focus on technologies such as digital learning objects, including video cases and virtual patients; interactive whiteboards with internet searching capability; mobile devices; learning management systems; virtual reality software and 3-D simulations and haptics in para-clinical training. The collection is research-based, seeking to expand and synthesise current understandings of both theoretical backgrounds and empirical evidence for the use of educational technologies in healthcare practitioner education. To date, limited evidence is available in the literature regarding the impact of educational technologies on the learning process. This volume provides a much-needed update to the available literature on technology in medical education.
