Developing the reflective professional: medical students' use of resources and patterns of learning
Project lead: Dr Peter Dangerfield
Researcher: Tünde Varga-Atkins
Participant student groups: 1st year
This project builds on a previous CEDP Fellowship award (entitled 'Writing and reflecting: exploring the use of wikis and online peers assessment tools to promote the personal and professional development of undergraduate medical students') which explored how students interacted and shared their findings and resources between face-to-face PBL sessions. This presentation reports on project findings which focused on the process of how students research and evaluate their learning objectives. Through the introduction of online tools in the PBL process, the project examined the potential of a social bookmarking tool, Diigo, in supporting the development of students' reflective practice.
