Thematic Case Reviews

In these thematic reviews, the organisation and presentation of cases will be based on the latest educational research, including literature exploring the role of expertise in radiologic image interpretation; how to promote active learning in radiology trainees, and activities to simulate how experts through deliberate practice generate a holistic high-level representation of the image, which then fine-tunes the perception of potential lesions. These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases. Selected use of didactic instructional videos will be included.

Using compare and contrast case review for radiology training

Using insights from educational psychology of learning to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of radiology training - Compare and contrast deliberate practice

Topic: Using Insights from Educational Psychology of Learning to Improve Efficiency and Effectiveness of Radiology Residency and Fellowship - Compare and Contrast Practice is more effective and efficient than sequential case review

Example below

Subject: Ventricular Tumours

Cited Reference:

First read article

Then study illustrations

Use sequential followed by compare and contrast case review (using illustrations from cited reference to illustrate this strategy of case review) - please refer to article for original illustrations and figure captions (the figures below refer to those from original cited article)

Study table of differential diagnoses and key features carefully

Lastly, you should be able to not only mentally visualize each diagnostic entity, but give a brief description of the relevant diagnostic possibilities when presented with a new case

Ultimately, the test of learning is public recall, explanation, justification and elaboration

eLearning - mobile learning

promotes interaction, accessible, rapid feedback, immersive learning

eLearning - blended learning

well designed online learning content promotes active learning, engagement, and increased time to task resulting in stronger learning effect compared with traditional face to face teaching and learning activities
