In order to achieve study results, various interactive teaching methods (analysis of cases, reflection, interactive lecture, observation, analysis of best practices, making and reasoning assumptions, role-play games, etc.), independent work and related methods are intended in the descriptions of subjects.
Methods of problematic teaching in subject studies: analysis of cases (in specialty subjects – clinical cases) in small groups draw students into confrontation with practical problems that stimulate their independent learning, will realize interdisciplinary integration of knowledge and skills in solving real life situations, and the lecturer’s function is changed into that of a consultant’s and helper’s.
Constructionist learning approach. Learning going the best, when the learner is actively developing real-world objects. To realize this training helps not only the information and communication technology (ICT) but also captured the experience of others.
