ABSTRACT:
Background: For improving students’ learning effect, various teaching methods were adopted in teaching various subjects in classes in medical colleges. Aim: The purpose of this study is to verify the effectiveness of the standardized patient (SP) and case-based learning (CBL) in teaching Cell Biology to college students majoring in Medical Laboratory Technology. Materials and methods: A total of 84 college students were divided into case and control groups which were taught in ways with and without SP and CBL, and the differences of effectiveness were evaluated. Results: The mean final score of the students in case group is higher than that in control group. Conclusion: SP and CBL are significantly beneficial in boosting the students’ performances in learning the selected subject.
