Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses how student involvement in the design, implementation, and evaluation of their own education can help the understanding of the underlying principles of problem-based learning (PBL). Peer-assisted learning and near-peer teaching are other ways to do so. Such activities can prepare students for their teaching roles as healthcare professionals. Finally, students can also be involved in faculty development programmes where they can contribute to the development of the educational competencies of their teachers.

Keywords: student involvement; evaluation; implementation; problem-based learning; peer-assisted learning; near-peer teaching
