Creativity in Medical Teaching



Creativity in Medical Teaching
*Dr.T.V.Rao MD
We all live in a complex world, the technology makes matters look simple but have created complex problems to students and teachers too. A question arises whether we need teachers in future to teach and train our Medical students. However what one says I am true to testify we certainly need creative teachers to overcome the technological advances, as we live in is a rich and diverse place. If we're smart, we can take advantage of different aspects of the stimulating environment we all live in to help to teach creatively. If you can stimulate your students, you have a better chance at keeping them interested in learning more. But being creative offers more benefits than just holding our students attention. If you are able to present material in many different ways, your students have a better chance of understanding it. Being a creative teacher encourages students to be creative learners too. The educationalists are constantly investigating methods to improve teaching methods to encourage their job seriously, and least attention is paid to make the teachers creative. If you take an opinion from competent teachers they accept that learning is most effective when it is enjoyable, but they are given little direct advice about how to achieve the creative and motivating classrooms that educationalists appeal for. Best way to be a good teacher, think about your good old teachers, and think back to all the teachers you had, you'll probably be able to identify different "styles" or approaches. Probably you could categorize them with one word. Words like "very good teacher and just boring. If I ask you to recapitulated more, you might describe as "influential" or "inspiring." I feel that made the difference is us too. Nobody can escape the

influence of good teachers. I am justified to say that no computer, multimedia, or Internet can replace a good creative teacher. We as teachers need to consciously consider their teaching style and work toward developing a positive and effective style. Developing a teaching style means more than just one word. To develop a well-balanced teaching style means you must give plenty of thought to what works well for you and what will be best for the students you work with. If you analyse the truth, our students are the Mirror of our approach to teaching just ask students what makes a good teacher. You may find the answers at once, but in low tone just makes you realise whether they are truly comfortable with you. We teachers should realise life is a challenge, we have to face it do not lose your temper. Be firm, perhaps, but don't ever lose control. Deal with explosive situations at another time or another place. I have seen several teachers who deal with students many inferior ways which made highly knowledged teachers unpopular and get to moral and legal litigations. Talk to students as if they're human beings, not as ignorant creatures. A little respect for students goes a long way and doesn't stop you from providing advice and guidance. I always consider them as my junior friends I say so much responsibility with you in upbringing the profession. I never meant any should be weak and useless. God has created all us with different abilities which may have creative effects for the future developments in profession. Always be fair, "Fair" is probably the most commonly mentioned word students use about many of us as teachers. It may be the hardest thing to do. Work at it. Follow from fellow teachers, administrators, and students. We have several issues in the work place sort out try not to take problems to administrators and the issues will blow out of proportion. Try to resolve them before you

leave for the day or at least develop a plan for resolving them tomorrow. Many times we are in Catch 22 situations, be a professional with parents and administrators. Consider the concerns and requirements of others, but remember. You’re a trained professional. My little success if I analyse is my sincerity and commitment than just a little of knowledge. Give a little of yourself, arrive a little early, stay a little late. The best creativity we can teach to our changing student world is our own behaviour, attitude, and little concern, Let us practice a little of it. Creativity spontaneously generates in environment we work.
