In this exercise, teams are required to submit written answers that the faculty sorts into 5 choice-groups (based on similarity of content). The 5 choice-groups are posted for all teams to read and discuss. Each team then selects the one group of written responses they feel best answers the original question. Voting and intra-team discussion follow as usual.
This module effectively helps students think and respond at a level of creativity beyond that typically required of multiple choice questions, yet stays within the beneficial structural framework provided by the Team Based Learning format. Ample time must be allowed for teams to complete the Group Application Exercise (GAE). A period of 1.5 hours is recommended for the GAE to enable students to write descriptions of the lesion location, read descriptions posted by other teams, and choose the best localization from among the groups of written descriptions. Large Post-it note pads with markers and up-front board space to post and view descriptions are needed for these sessions.
- To be able to associate neural pathway dysfunction with physical signs detected upon clinical examination of the nervous system.
- To be able to apply knowledge of neural pathway anatomy and neurologic physical signs to localize lesions of the nervous system.
