Abstract

The lecture format for teaching medical physiology remains a major mode for instruction in the medical curriculum. There is a need to improve the effectiveness of classroom presentations. Recent developments in computer technology offers opportunities for innovation and can increase effectiveness in developing and delivering lectures in physiology Over a four year period, the lectures in gastrointestinal physiology for medical students were redesigned to utilize increased use of computer presentation graphics. Lecture outlines, figures, tables, and physiology demonstrations were developed, stored, and presented from computer-based graphics. This project uses graphics scanning, video grabbing technology, video clips and other aids to enhance the classroom presentations. Methods were developed to reduce the barriers to the limitations of the computer memory in storing graphics and videos. These computer presentation methods can also be used for evaluating student comprehension during these lectures and to allow students to review the lecture presentation outside of class in a computer lab.
