Perception of Undergraduate Medical Students about Interactive Lecture at Kirkpatrick Level One.
Introduction: Interactive lectures are considered good among educational practices for large class size as learning is an active and interactive process. This study was done to assess the feedback of the students on interactive lectures at Kirkpatrick level one i.e. reaction (perception).
Methods: This descriptive study was done to assess the feedback of the students on interactive lectures at Kirkpatrick level one i.e. reaction (perception).Author delivered interactive lectures in respiratory and nervous system to the students of 3rd year MBBS of KIST Medical College Lalitpur Nepal. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS version 20.
Results: Majority of the students was agreed that the objectives of the interactive lectures were clearly delineated (93%, 3.90±0.995), the facilitator fulfilled his role effectively as per the objectives (96%, 4.03±0.916), the facilitator succeeded in creating friendly environment for learning (90%, 3.96±1.055) and the learning was up to my satisfaction (93%, 3.80±0.957). Overall, students perceived that interactive lectures were effective as they rated interactive lectures on rating scale 1-10 (1 being the least effective and 10 being the most effective) 7.47±1.7.
Conclusion: It appears that continuing interactive lectures may be one possible way to combat the problem of how to better involve students in more active learning within large class size. Alternative technology assisted formats like online interactive lecture; flipped class room format can be utilized for better engagement of the students. Moreover, lectures are not appropriate method for teaching students, higher orders of thinking such as application, analysis and synthesis.
