Evaluation of learning skills development and computer-assisted learning strategies associated with an orientation program

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The promotion of the importance of self-learning skills to students has paralleled the increasing use of computer technologies both in and out of the classroom. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate an extended orientation session for incoming pharmacy students that included instruction in learning skills development and the use of computer-assisted instructional strategies. Pre- and post-assessment surveys containing questions with Likert-type response scales were completed by the students. Overall, the students found the sessions to be useful, with statistically significant improvements noted in their perceptions of the importance of learning techniques and use of the Internet for health-related purposes. Learning skills development and computer-assisted learning strategies are important aspects of a student's education, and this can be emphasized and initiated during orientation programs for incoming students.
