Student Learning a Traditional Education Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



The students were asked to examine a case study and determine a treatment method for recovery. Each student was to present the situation based on their specific area of interest. The varied responses by the different students assisted all the participants by providing a much more comprehensive approach to the healing of the patient.

Another example of the effectiveness of the student-centered educational process is when the student is asked to examine the relevant goals and objectives of a specific course of study. This can be especially essential in gaining a perspective in nursing or nursing theories.

Most individuals understand, and desire, the benefits that can be derived from an education.

This is true in almost every setting or scenario; the more knowledge or understanding of a situation that can be attained, the more likely a positive outcome will be experienced from that situation. This is certainly true in the medical industry where ironically enough the highest paid individuals are oftentimes referred to as 'practicing' professionals, so it makes perfect sense to allow the students to 'practice' during their educational process. Understanding the goals and objectives of the course as it pertains specifically to the individual student is therefore essential to gaining the knowledge and skills most prevalent to that particular student. A third example of the student-centered approach is when the patient is able to learn more about the different treatments or approaches to their specific situation.

A recent study showed that prostate cancer patients receiving drug therapy as a treatment increased program compliance from 74 to 96.8% with additional educational training and the same study concluded that "patient education and follow-up programs are essential to improve patient outcomes" (Nolbert, Wells, Hussein, 2002, p. 33). A student-centered approach allows the patient (student) to determine what information is needed, what treatment should (or should not) be used, and the medical consequences of accepting or rejecting certain medical approaches or medicines.
