Luengo, Vanda, Aboulafia, Annette, Blavier, Adélaïde, Shorten, George, Vadcard, Lucile and Zottmann, Jan (2009) Novel Technology for Learning in Medicine. In: Technology-Enhanced Learning. Springer Netherlands, pp. 105-120. ISBN 978-1-4020-9826-0, 978-1-4020-9827-7


In this chapter we will present some medical educational approaches together with their links to different learning objectives and learning situations. We will also present various forms of computer-based technology, which aim to enhance the teaching and learning capabilities of doctors, mostly in the form of 3D visualisation, simulation and haptic technology. We will focus on research conducted in the areas of spinal anaesthesia, surgery and emergency. Finally, we will emphasise some challenges of our domain which are related to the interaction between medical education, technological and computer factors.
