WithAdam Feather, Heather Fry
Pages 25

The intention of this chapter is to elucidate some distinctive aspects of teaching and learning in medicine and dentistry for the relatively inexperienced teacher, in the context of first qualification education in British-style university medical/dental systems. There is also mention of teaching and learning in post-registration training. This chapter builds on matters considered in earlier generic chapters. Readers are especially invited to refer to the chapters on student learning, assessment, lecturing, small group teaching, e-learning and nursing.
