Abstract

In Medical Education today, the focus is mainly on the “student-centred” teaching/learning strategies. We tried a novel, teaching/learning strategy called ‘keyword based learning’ for first year medical students. The strategy is characterized by giving a series of keywords to students and asking them to learn the related topic and arrive at the learning objectives related to the keywords given. Student feedback was collected and 80% of the students were positive about this strategy.
