Technology Enhanced Case-Based-Learning (CBL) on Basic Medical Sciences Workshop

Event Date : 16/10/2018
Event Time : 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Materials : Download PDF

Case-Based-Learning (CBL) is a teaching-learning approach which trains students to link theory to practice through application of knowledge to the cases and encourage the use of inquiry-based learning. The clinical cases enhance the relevance of the basic and biomedical sciences and integrate those with clinical sciences.

Current generation of students require interactive, Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) approaches that support a verity of learning styles. Interactive clinical cases in web-based platform facilitate context generation and can compensate absence of real-life cases in pre-clinical settings.


At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to

  • Develop cases based on basic science outcomes
  • Develop interactive and engaging tools for basic sciences
  • Be trained to develop interactive cases using web-based platform
  • Have opportunities for further collaboration in TEL
