I believe that students learn better from experience even if they make mistakes. They must be encouraged to apply their knowledge to solve a specific problem. Students need to be involved in planning and evaluating their learning. I consider my role as a teacher to facilitate and mentor students ; thus encouraging students’ engagement, critical thinking and reflection during problem-based learning and case-based discussion either in the class room or in simulated and clinical environment. I also believe that assessment derives learning especially if be preceded by clear guidance and followed by effective feedback.
