The study, which is focused on multidisciplinary staff in low and middle-income countries LMICswill seek to determine how the benefits seen from blended learning are maintained when local imaging is used. Contouring is a key skill used by radiation oncologists when planning for the accurate, precise and consistent delivery of radiation to patients with cancerous tumours. These images allow first for the identification of the location and size of cancerous tumours, and second for the outlining of healthy organs.

She noticed, for example, that there are many ways to figure out the area of a parallelogram. When she was in school, this had been taught to her as a formula. She was just expected to memorize it. In Japanese classrooms, however, teachers took a different approach.
After learning how to find the area of a rectangle, students would be given a parallelogram. Their task was to take what they knew about rectangles to try to figure out the area of this new shape. These teaching strategies came from the United States, they told her.
This was really curious. Education ideas developed in the U. It turns out math lessons in Japan used to look a lot like lessons in the U.
But when researchers develop new ideas about teaching and learning, Japanese teachers have an effective way to learn those new ideas, and practice them. Akihiko Takahashi The name for lesson study in Japanese is jugyokenkyu.
So, the study or research of teaching and learning. A group of teachers comes together and identifies a teaching problem they want to solve. Maybe their students are struggling with adding fractions. Next, the teachers do some research on why students struggle with adding fractions.
They read the latest education literature and look at lessons other teachers have tried. The lesson plan is like their hypothesis: If we teach this lesson in this way, we think students will understand fractions better. Then, one of the teachers teaches the lesson to students, and the other teachers in the group observe.
Often other teachers in the school will come watch, and sometimes educators from other schools too. How are the students reacting to the lesson? What are they understanding or misunderstanding?
The purpose is to improve the lesson, not to critique the teacher.Learn about the online Master of Science in Distance Education and E-Learning at University of Maryland learning models, and various teaching and learning frameworks in distance education; Develop and manage distance education curricula Foundations of Distance Education & E-learning OMDE | 3 Credits.
