Dear Professor Akira Taguchi and all members,
I think the most proper reasearch for evaluating the efficacy of teaching
and learning strategies is action research like classroom action research
Action research is one kind of research used mostly in social science.
Research will be done by observation and interview using questionnaire as
a research tool.
Please consider this type of research and I am more than happy to share
some experience about this.
> Dear Oradlist member,
> Please let me know if you conducted randomized controlled trial or
> clinical trial for developed education (or teaching) strategy like PBL
> to clarify the usefulness of such education strategy in dental
> students as well as medical students.
> If you did so, what is the final outcome in this educational research.
> In Japan, many educational strategies or programs such as OSCE, PBL
> and so on have been imported from foreign countries; however, it seems
> to me that there is no clear evidence as if these strategies are
> useful or not.
> There is no well designed RCT or clinical trial for this
> demonstration. As well. there is no clear outcome for education
> Continuing these strategies or programs without clear evidence may
> contribute to the severe fatigue of students as well as teachers.
> Thank you in advance.
