Abstract

Abstract: This paper describes a university's experience using interactive unfolding clinical case studies in science curricula to facilitate students' acquisition of advanced skills in reasoning, problem solving, and reflective learning. The instructional design employs multimedia case "evidence" (images, graphics, video, audio prompts) to engage learners in actively constructing an understanding of content and process knowledge. Podcasting software is used to enable convenient access to audio and video files that enhance the reality and variability of case studies that are "solved" by collaborative student study groups. The instructional strategy fosters communities of learners, embeds opportunities for feedback and self-assessment during learning, and prompts learners to interact with complex, dynamic variables to develop skills in reasoning. Operational aspects of initiating and refining use of podcasting to support interactive unfolding clinical case studies are described.
