Abstract

Introduction: There exists a gap between the existing postgraduate curriculum of imparting teaching-learning methods and their expected role as a trainer in future. We wanted to share the approach of using microteaching and discuss the facilitators’ reflection of using teaching-learning methods.

Methods: Three final year postgraduates were asked to conduct a half-day workshop for sixteen participants (medical interns and junior postgraduates) on study designs in Epidemiology following the principles of microteaching. The facilitators’ reflections were obtained using Pendleton’s model. Manual content analysis was done with the qualitative data.

Results & Conclusion: Five categories emerged from their reflection namely, pre-planning, physical arrangements, session planning, session delivery, self-reflection and constraints faced. Hence using microteaching as a method to teach postgraduates on how to conduct a workshop was successful in empowering post-graduates with medical education technology and reflective practices.
