One of the recent aims and objectives of Qawmi madrasa education is to make the madrasa students adequately proficient in English to participate in the competitive sectors of Bangladesh for better career options. Though they consider English as an international language of communication and higher education, they pay very little attention to this language teaching and learning. Using a mixed-methods approach, the present study tried to explore how the 4 macro-skills of the English language are taught in Qawmi madrasas under the BEFAQ board and what challenges the teachers and the students encounter in teaching-learning situations. Analyzing the questionnaires, interviews, and classroom observations, it was found that only reading and writing skills are focused in the syllabus, textbooks, classroom, and testing; whereas listening and speaking skills are either informally practiced very little or avoided from all arenas. Consequently, language learners cannot achieve communicative competence in English. Finally, the researcher attempts to put forward some recommendations regarding the English syllabus, textbook contents, teaching method, and testing system to the Qawmi madrasa board and authority, madrasa teachers, and Bangladesh government for facing the challenges and making the students proficient in all basic skills of English language.

Objective: To explore the impact of debates on students’ perceptions of their (i) ability to read and critically appraise pharmacoeconomic literature and (ii) confidence in synthesising evidence, reaching a decision, and communicating it effectively. Methods: 77 pharmacoeconomics course students participated in a debate exercise: one team for adding a medication to a formulary and the other against adding. The self-reported perceptions of skills acquired were evaluated via pre- and post-debate questionnaires. Results: 48 participants completed the pre- and post-debate questionnaires, and 60 completed the perceptions toward the debate activity questionnaire. The number of students who rated their ability to meet course learning objectives as excellent increased significantly after the debate. Also, the students’ perceptions of their confidence in making a decision, critically analysing evidence, and communicating their arguments improved after the debate exercise. Conclusions: The debate approach is an effective teaching method that can improve students’ perceptions of skills acquired.

Abstract Background International Inter-medical School Physiology Quiz (IMSPQ) is a global event that purportedly engages students in team work, critical thinking and active learning of physiology. Team-based learning (TBL) is an interactive analytic teaching approach and has been used extensively in medical education. However, there is little evidence of its use in preparing for IMSPQ. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether a TBL approach is effective to prepare for the written section of IMSPQ. Methods Five students from Grade 2014 majoring in Clinical Medicine, were selected, based on academic performance in physiology and English, to be taught in a TBL physiology course to prepare for the written section of 14th IMSPQ. Results In 2016, this TBL teaching method worked well and for the first time the team from Kunming Medical University entered the top forty teams at the written competition of 14th IMSPQ in Yogyakarta. Conclusion TBL method was effective to prepare for the IMSPQ in Kunming Medical University and provided an improved team performance in the written section of 14th IMSPQ.

It is very easy in universities to forget the importance of teaching. It is easy for this to happen when the accreditation system almost exclusively recognizes research, as is the case in Spain, and teaching is relegated to a huge block of “others,” where teaching, transfer to society and management are practically diluted between them. With no small effort to find the time and little encouragement from his colleagues, still subject manuals come to light. Some are published by the universities themselves and so frequently valued as something minor, and others with great personal efforts from the authors. This review wants to highlight the importance of manuals, the teacher’s book, the work “bible” that will make it possible for students to be great professionals tomorrow. Frequently we find university professors who use references from numerous authors to their own program, plagued by a multitude of citations, which on many occasions cloud the objective, in short, due to the almost obligatory nature of covering a teaching method, a concept, a working tool.

The article presents the results of theoretical substantiation and practical ap-probation of modern possibilities for applying the visual teaching method. The EU countries’ educational experience on modern ways of working with museum expositions to form economic thinking is studied. The content of the two-stage pedagogical experiment is characterized. At the first stage, the possibilities of using educational excursions through museums and histori-cally significant territories of cities as a studying method are researched. The authors’ pedagogical product is presented - regional-themed tours on eco-nomics’ history. Using Ukrainian museums’ online resources (virtual tours, virtual exhibitions) has been developed and tested at the second stage. The thematic catalog of Ukrainian museums’ online resources for broad research practices has been created. The presented innovative tool has shown its ef-fectiveness in improving the educational process quality, forming infor-mation and media literacy, and applying inclusive education. This pedagogi-cal tool is essential in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and for stu-dents with disabilities.

Abstract This study’s objective is to present an overview of experimental applications of Concept-Based Instruction (CBI) for Second Language Acquisition. CBI aims to describe complex grammatical notions in a thorough manner in order to facilitate their acquisition. Even though CBI is still considered as a recent domain in language teaching, the growing body of research makes it timely to present a systematic review, which is currently lacking. In the present paper, we will first describe the theoretical background upon which CBI is grounded. Then, we will carry out an analysis of 29 CBI studies in which a classroom experiment was performed, with the objective of considering the strengths and limits of this teaching method.

ABSTRACT Introduction The physique of college students is very important. The physique of college students is the prerequisite for the country’s revitalization, and health is the prerequisite for the transformation of intellectual capital. Object Aiming at the current college students’ physical education class arrangements and curriculum reform, the paper uses exercise prescriptions to make a brief plan for students’ physical exercise. Method The thesis uses the exercise prescription teaching method to carry out health intervention education for middle school students, which is used to analyze the physical requirements of students. Results After five months of fitness exercise prescription, the students’ physical fitness has increased significantly. We use fitness exercise prescriptions to make students feel good about exercise. Conclusion The application of physical and healthy exercise prescriptions can effectively improve the systematic and scientific nature of students’ participation in sports and help students learn and master healthy physical and mental self-exercise skills. Level of evidence II; Therapeutic studies - investigation of treatment results.
