Learning Preferences of First-Year Anesthesiology Residents During Their Orientation Month: A Single-Institution Study.

Summary of "Learning Preferences of First-Year Anesthesiology Residents During Their Orientation Month: A Single-Institution Study."

As a step toward understanding whether learning preferences may benefit trainees and instructors, we studied the learning preferences, based on the VARK questionnaire, of anesthesiology residents during their orientation month to determine whether knowing their preferences influenced the educational resources they used. While resource utilization was similar for residents who knew their preferences and those who did not, residents overall used aural and read/write resources frequently. The learning preferences of 13 residents (72.2%) changed during the month. While further research is needed, this study provides insight into anesthesiology residents' learning styles.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)

Change in learning in one situation due to prior learning in another situation. The transfer can be positive (with second learning improved by first) or negative (where the reverse holds).

A principle that learning is facilitated when the learner receives immediate evaluation of learning performance. The concept also hypothesizes that learning is facilitated when the learner is promptly informed whether a response is correct, and, if incorrect, of the direction of error.

Learning that is manifested in the ability to respond differentially to various stimuli.

Learning to make a series of responses in exact order.
