ABSTRACT

Introduction: Teaching in pharmacology can be made interesting by the use of Audio visual aids. This study was done to know the preference of students for these teaching tools in various aspects of learning so that the students can derive maximum benefit from the lectures. Material and Methods: Eighty students from second professional MBBS participated in a cross sectional questionnaire based study. They were asked to select an option of audio visual aid for various aspects of learning like for understanding the topic, diagrams, flow charts, notes taking etc. Results: Majority of students opted for Chalk and talk as the best method for understanding a topic in pharmacology (45%) whereas power point was preferred as the most effective tool for understanding diagrams (60%), flow charts (55%) and for taking notes (68.75%). Conclusion: Our study demonstrates that lectures delivered by using a combination of audio visual aids specially the classical Chalk and talk method for understanding a particular topic and Powerpoint presentations for diagrams, flow charts and notes taking seems to be more convincing for the students.
