Paper Abstract

The task of teaching medical personnel how to identify blood cells is complicated by several factors relating to the type of teaching equipment required and the amount of teacher-student interaction available in the traditional teaching environment. Equipment such as 'double headed' microscopes and slide projectors have been used in the classroom as interactive teaching tools, but are of limited value as they require the presence of an instructor during the basic phase of learning blood cell identification. Textbooks and manuals augment this process in a non-interactive fashion. A student can therefore expect a rather small number of 'interactive' hours of instruction during a normal course in blood cell identification.
