Understanding Protein Synthesis: A Role Play ApproachSoTL Commons Conference
Proposal AbstractThis study is significant because it discusses the use of an interactive approach to studying protein synthesis, a topic explored in various disciplines. The targeted population consisted of 300 students registered for two sections of Human Anatomy and Physiology taught by the same instructor. The Role Play section served as the study group, while the Lecture section served as the control group. Students' performance was evaluated based on pre/posttest assessment scores, overall test scores and test item analysis. In addition, a survey was administered to both sections to examine students' perception of role play and lecture on their understanding of the topic, engagement and satisfaction. Session objectives include discussing the use of role play n the classroom and results that emerged from the analysis. Participants will be invited to fill out a matching activity analogous to the role play.
