Use of Audiovisual Media and Equipment by Medical Educationists: Trends in the College of Medicine University of Lagos
AbstractThis study was designed to determine the frequency of use of the audiovisual media and equipment for the teaching and training of medical students by medical teachers in the College of Medicine, University of Lagos. Emphasis is on the different audiovisual media formats like projected still visual media and equipment, which are available for use in teaching and training at the college. Our results show that there was a significant (P=0.000) difference in the frequency of the use of these audiovisual media and equipment. The most frequently used audiovisual medium and equipment is transparency on Overhead projector (O. H. P.) while the medium and equipment that is barely used for teaching is computer graphics on multi-media projector. This study also suggests ways of improving teaching-learning processes in medical education, using new technologies of communications and appropriate techniques of media presentations, such as; computer generated graphic media and multimedia presentations, videotapes presentation, and video CD and multimedia projector.
Key words: Medical Education; audiovisual; media; presentations.
