Histology Laboratory Teaching Survey Image

Histology Laboratory Teaching Survey

We are particularly seeking data on the laboratory teaching of histology to medical students. In any event, please complete the survey in regards to only a single course and indicate the student population served in that course in question #1.


 
   

1.  

Indicate whether your responses are related to a:
 
   
    Medical School course
   
    Dental School course
   
   
Other, Please Specify:  

 
   

2.  

Which of the following best describes the laboratory component of your course?
 
   
    Required attendance in scheduled laboratory sessions with lab instructors
   
    Optional attendance in scheduled laboratory sessions with lab instructors
   
    Assigned independent study instead of scheduled laboratory time (no instructor)
   
   
Other, Please Specify:  

 
   

3.  

How many hours of faculty-assisted laboratory instruction does each student in your course currently receive?     

 
   

4.  

Indicate whether the total number of hours that each student participates in scheduled laboratory activities in histology during the last 3 years has:
 
   
    Decreased
   
    Stayed about the same
   
    Increased
   
    Not applicable

 
   

5.  

If your course has scheduled laboratory sessions, indicate the student/faculty ratio that best matches your course:
 
   
    10:1
   
    20:1
   
    30:1
   
    40:1
   
    50:1
   
    Greater than 50:1

 
   

6.  

Indicate whether the total number of faculty hours devoted to histology laboratory instruction (multiply number of faculty lab instructors by the time each teaches) during the past 3 years has:
 
   
    Decreased
   
    Stayed about the same
   
    Increased
   
    Not applicable

 
   

7.  

For the last time that you gave your histology course, check all of the following that were major tools in the teaching of the laboratory component of your course [check all that apply]:
 
   
    Student microscopes and glass slides
   
    Video microscopes and glass slides
   
    Computers
   
    Virtual Slides (obtained from the University of Iowa Virtual Slide Box or generated using technology from Microbrightfield, Bacus, Aperio, InterscopeTech, Nikon Coolscope, etc.)
   
    Computer-based instructional tools other than true Virtual Slides (Downing's Histology Atlas/CD, WebMIc, etc.)
   
    CDs or DVDs distributed to students for independent study (outside of scheduled lab times)
   
   
Other, Please Specify:  

 
   

8.  

Indicate whether your use of microscopes and glass slides for histology laboratory instruction during the last 3 years has:
 
   
    Decreased
   
    Stayed about the same
   
    Increased
   
    Not applicable

 
   

9.  

Indicate whether your use of all forms of computer-aided instruction (including Virtual Slides) for histology laboratory instruction during the last 3 years has:
 
   
    Decreased
   
    Stayed about the same
   
    Increased
   
    Not applicable

 
   

10.  

Indicate your plans for laboratory teaching for the next time your course is to be offered [check only one]:
 
   
    Will use only microscopes and glass slides
   
    Will use only Virtual Slides
   
    Will use a combination of microscopes/glass slides and Virtual slides
   
    Will use only some sort of Computer-Aided Instruction/Virtual Microscopy (but not true Virtual Slides)
   
    Will use some combination of microscopes/glass slides and Computer-Aided Instruction/Virtual Microscopy (but not true Virtual Slides)
   
   
Other, Please Specify:  

 
   

11.  

Please share with us your philosophy of laboratory learning and teaching.
