Session Handout: Conversion of a Language Based Course for Online Learning pdf format


Abstract

This presentation will focus on current methods of instruction most commonly used today for healthcare professionals. Discovering ways to teach medical terminology online that keeps students interested, attentive, and highly engaged can be a challenge. Previously, students studying medical terminology had communicated using text-based synchronous and asynchronous discussion only. This is why the Quality Matters Rubric Standards were implemented into the course. A common criticism of text-based media is the lack of nonverbal communication.


Session Objectives

  • Participants will have an understanding of how the course redesign met and enhanced the learning outcomes.
  • Participants will learn the rationale for changing from a non-audio based to audio based medical terminology course.
  • Participants will gain knowledge of quality matters in an online medical terminology course.
  • Participants will learn about audio tools used that enhanced the online medical terminology course.
