Description

Virtual dissection’sefficacy is being studied due to its constantly changing technology. The discussion regarding the extent of use of virtual dissection in professional education could benefit from thisquantitative study reflecting students’achievement of learning course objectives, perceived learning of course objectives, and discussion of the data’simpact on curriculum development.

Comments

Method: This study utilized current three-dimensional virtual dissection and correspondent matrices, focusing specifically on the compartments, veins, and arteries of the head. After implementation of the curriculum, theresearchers used the subjects’ scores on adeveloped assessment (objective measure) and a Likert-scale survey of perceived learning of course objectives (subjective measure) as their research instruments. Overall, the participant students felt that “virtual dissectionhelped them better achieve the course learning objectives and improved visuallearning of anatomical structures”compared to limited dissection. Researchers will present more detail during their podium presentation.
