Comparison of two teaching methods, structured interactive lectures and conventional lectures

In the present project structured interactive lectures with conventional lectures as a teaching method have been compared. Students were divided into two groups, interactive lecture group and conventional lecture group. The two groups were similar in all aspects except the teaching method adopted for two groups. The groups were exposed to structured interactive lectures and conventional lectures separately. Same topics from pharmacology were taught to both the groups by using these teaching methods. Effect of these two teaching methods on students was evaluated by giving questionnaire and a MCQ test conducted on the topics covered. There was no significant difference in average MCQ marks of two groups. But the outcome of questionnaire was in favor of structured interactive lecture method. Structured interactive lectures may be better than conventional lectures as a teaching method
