Abstract

The purpose of this showcase session is to demonstrate a case-based e-learning environment that is designed for training in dynamic decision-making skills in anesthesiology for a dental school in South Korea. The anesthetization process is a complex and high-risk task in which critical decisions need to be made in a timely manner during dynamically changing situations. Instructors in this course are often challenged by the fact that a great amount of information needs to be delivered to the students within a very limited time. Consequently, instructors have observed that students were neither engaged in reflective thinking nor deepening their understanding and problem solving skills. In order to resolve this problem, we have been developing a case-based e-learning environment in which students are able to build their reasoning and decision-making skills while exploring real video cases, expert reasoning processes, and just-in-time information.
