In our study the usefulness of SGIS was evaluated by comparison of students\' perception, of conventional learning and problem based learning in two different medical colleges.
A comparison was made between responses of students in Group I and students of Group II on usefulness of SGIS in the subject of Physiology.
10 This study assesses utility of SGIS, a form of SGD which is a strategy used by both CMC and PBL-MC.
This shows that SGIS had impact on improvement of working and learning in a team irrespective of type of curriculum.
14 In our study the students of PBL-MC gave more weightage to PBL group discussions then SGIS for effective learning and in the active process of personal cognitive construction.
In comparing responses on SGIS by these two types of medical colleges, it was found that both groups responded to interactive sessions as a useful teaching tool that benefited them in understanding the topics.
Our study had limitations in that the number of students in PBL-MC and CMC groups was not similar; moreover Group II facilitators had no pre-tutorial meeting with a faculty member, nonetheless, results of the study emphasize the importance of SGIS in teaching and learning of Physiology.
With 675 employees at 14 offices, SGIS
serves clients such as the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the intelligence community, NASA, NOAA, and Department of Justice.
