- In a short response, discuss a time when a bias you had about a certain topic made it difficult for you to
reason with either evidence you were presented with or the ideas another person had about that topic.
1-A. Just make up a story about me being closed-minded.
- Based on the types of bias you learned about in the NimblyWise video “Bias and Assumption,” identify the
type of bias you discussed, and explain your reasoning.
2-A. The type of bias from the video I discussed in detail #1 was confirmation bias being closed-minded with
everybody, and I started reasoning with people’s advice.
- Then briefly share your thoughts as to why being aware of the existence of biases is important to critical
thinking and necessary when doing research, when reviewing information, or when learning about the
arguments of others.
xperience— An initial demonstration was followed by a student performing the examination. One student interviewed the patient for a detailed medical history and other student performed a focused physical examination under my supervision. Rest of cohort were observing the examination. Reflection—History taking and examination were discussed and students received a verbal feedback on their approach to examine abdomen. Students then observed a demonstration of abdominal examination by me, while the rest observed and reflected on their performances. Theory—copy of my power point presentation were handed out to the students(appendix2). Kolb (1971) had introduced four distinct learning styles of learners in a given learner population. Kolb referred to these as diverging, assimilating, converging and accommodating. Figure 4, illustrates the learning abilities of Kolb’s four-part model in relation to the learning process associated with this SGT session. Fig 4 Kolb’s Model Sir William Osler’s dictum that “it is a safe rule to have no teaching without a patient for a text, and the best teaching is that taught by the patient himself” appears very true for this teaching session. Simulation based teaching Medical simulation has been increasingly used in Medical education over the past decade. It aims to imitate real patients, anatomical regions and clinical tasks to mirror the real life circumstances allowing trainee to practice their skills in a risk-free environment (Scalese. R,2007 ). There is a significant departure from traditional “See one do one “approach to simulation based training in recent years. Simulation has already been used in training as flight stimulator for pilots /astronauts and in warfare games, and now these models are used in medical education like critical care, anesthesia and emergency care. With continuing changes in health care has led to decrease availability of real patients as the learning opportunity & simulation fills this gap very effectively. One of the major advantage of simulation based learning is the ability to tailor the teaching needs, according to learner’s experience level and its reliability and transfera>GET ANSWER
