Guide to the Teaching Resources
Users of the curriculum are strongly encouraged to read this section before using the modules. Teachers who are not familiar with adolescent medicine should refer to the short description of the key concepts used throughout this curriculum.
There is evidence from teaching practice suggesting that knowledge alone, in those being taught, is not sufficient to bring about the better delivery of adolescent health care. Although learners often like formal lectures, this unidirectional transfer of knowledge is not, by itself, effective in increasing competence in the delivery of adolescent health care by those doing the learning.
The teaching methodologies that a teacher finally chooses to use should be in accordance with the teaching objectives.
