POSTER.16 – Critical Enquiry: Peer-to-Peer Teaching in Medical School

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Medical students at Queen’s University develop a research proposal as part of their 2nd year Critical Enquiry Course. As with any research project, a thorough literature search is part of the process. The students are expected to apply the skills taught by the librarians in their first year. In recent curriculum changes, librarians introduced peer-to-peer assessment of the searches and, at the students’ request, also peer-to-peer teaching to review the literature search process. This transformation of students into teachers prepares them well for future roles as medical professionals and life-long learners and leaders. The role of peer-tutor increased student engagement and facilitated active learning for all students in the class. Evaluation of this new methodology, including student feedback will be presented. The marking rubric will be shared with all poster-session attendees. The authors will be interested in hearing about similar experiences among participants.
