Biomedical Informatics: In-house tool development for skill building and problem solving.

Presenter: Jared Danielson Instructional Design and Evaluation Biomedical Informatics Research Group Department of Veterinary Pathology <br><br>Co-Presenters: Vanessa Preast, Rick Mills, Pamela Vermeer, Holly Bender <br><br>Two computer-based instructional products that have been produced by the Biomedical Informatics Research Group (BIRG) at the College of Veterinary Medicine will be presented. One of these products is designed to teach medical diagnostic problem solving - a very complex and difficult diagnostic process that can challenge both novices and practicing clinicians. The second software tool is designed to teach veterinary students how to make blood smears - a simple psychomotor task that similarly can prove challenging to both novices and practitioners. In both cases, empirical and qualitative studies demonstrated that these computer-based tools produced better learning outcomes than similar alternative teaching/learning approaches. Each tool will be demonstrated and described in terms of the theoretical ideas relevant to addressing specific learning needs. Evaluation processes and results also will be discussed.
