In any field, traditional teaching is done with the help of many things like blackboard, slides, field visits etc. but as the technology is advancing so does the techniques in teaching.
One of the renowned institution of India in medical studies, AIIMS, is all set to equip its teaching staff with the latest technology in the field. "With changes being made in the curriculum, using tech aids has become a priority to help students. The changes include use of animations, videos etc." says Dr. PK Julka, dean (academic), All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi.
Dr. Julka continued "The modules we are designing have become interesting with the use of animation and videos. For example, when we teach students about lung cancer through videos, animations, we teach them about basic disease, how to deal with it and through videos, we teach them about chemotherapy and radiotherapy at the same time. Therefore, students get 360 degree perspective. Students tend to grasp concepts better through audio-visual aids, and this new technique of teaching is across specialisations- orthopedics, cadaver, surgery, radiotherapy, drug interactions, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, etc. "
He concluded by saying "innovations are adopted inside and outside the classroom. Use of robotics in surgery, radiotherapy and many more areas are not only helping us to do a better job but are also helping us to improve the quality of surgeries and accuracy."
