Abstract

Microsituations teaching is an active learning tool developed from cognitive science and cognitive learning theory. This case-based approach has been developed to address the need to teach problem-solving skills to large classes while conserving faculty and other resources. Since implementing this method in an endocrine pharmacology course, student performance on problem-solving examinations has improved. Additionally, student evaluation of the method is extremely positive.
