Diverse Learning Experience

The Application and Evaluation of Advanced Simulation for Experiential Learning in Developing Students’ Critical Thinking Dispositions and Skills


Abstract

This study aimed primarily to identify issues and experiences from students and teachers to further improve the new approach of advanced simulation for experiential learning and course/curriculum development; as well as to evaluate the student’s development of critical thinking dispositions and skills with the application of new approach of advanced simulation for experiential learning.  There were four objectives:

  1. to understand the experiences of student’s learning with the new teaching and learning (T&L) approach after completion of the courses involved;
  2. to recommend course/curriculum improvement in the T&L of clinical decision making and skills;
  3. to identify and evaluate any development or changes in critical thinking dispositions and skills during the period commencing first semester to the end of second semester (2009/10) when the relevant courses completed; and
  4. to identify and evaluate any development or changes in students’ approaches to learning during the period commencing first semester to the end of second semester (2009/10) when the relevant courses completed.
