Proposal Title

The Effects of the Use of Online Streamed Video Instruction and Traditional Face-to-Face Instruction of Clinical Skills on Student Learning

Proposal Abstract

Online education continues to expand in its applications within the college classroom. Within the health professions, a vast majority of the curriculum requires students to learn hands-on, clinical skills, which have historically been taught in a face-to-face setting in which faculty demonstrate and students practice the skill. The literature examining the effect of Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) on psychomotor skills is limited. This poster presents the results of a follow-up study comparing student learning of clinical skills from online streamed video instruction versus traditional face-to-face instruction of selected physical therapy psychomotor examination and treatment skills. The results of this study indicate that the use of online streamed video may serve as an equally effective method of instruction of these selected psychomotor skills, and that combining the two modes of instruction may result in enhanced student learning.
