Educational Technique

Chapter

New educational technologies offer great promise in improving medical education. We should, however, temper our technological enthusiasm with a dose of realism, never forgetting that new technologies cannot outperform the educators who design and implement them. No matter how fancy the bells and whistles, a bad lecture will remain a bad lecture whether it is delivered live or electronically. Uninspired questions will never spark learner curiosity, no matter how dramatic the special effects used to enliven them on a computer screen.While doing our best to make the most of the opportunities new educational technologies afford us, we cannot afford to lose sight of the human side of education.
