basic human anatomy to the image. - Understand the localization and identification of human anatomy on the radiographic image is emphasized. - Understand the radiographic appearance of (bones and joints, GI.Tract, Biliary System, Respiratory System,
Urinary System, Reproductive system,etc.) - Lectures (Power point or PDF files, Videos, Radiographs digitally and manually (in view box)). - Educational assignments, reports and research

(ii) Teaching strategies

activities. - Seminars and small group discussions once/ week at least. - Continuous evaluation and continuous education.

(iii) Methods of assessment

(b) Cognitive Skills (i) Cognitive skills to be developed

(ii) Teaching strategies

(iii) Methods of assessment

- Revision of gross anatomy and correlate with radiographic appearance. - The student will be able to communicate between theory and practice. - The radiographer should be aware of producing an optimum-quality diagnostic image. - The success of interpretation of radiographs depends on the followings: Knowledge Understanding Practice Concentration - Independent readings - Presentations of radiographs by instructor through lecture. - Laboratory practice( use the viewing box) to interpret radiographs. - Additional methods designed for remediation or enrichment will be individually tailored as needed -self- and peer education and evaluation, - Periodically Seminars( Presentations by students) - Continuous evaluation (quizzes, written exams, short questions).

(c) Interpersonal Skills and Responsibility (i) Skills to be - Punctually attending of classes developed - Complete assigned tasks

- Work as a part of team - Follow instructions accurately and consistently. - Organise time properly in studying the course. - High level of knowledge about the science of image formation, structure and function of human body. - Skill of radiographic image interpretation.
(ii) Teaching strategies

(iii) Methods of assessment

- student-centred learning. - Encourage the student to gain knowledge. - Repeats the new lesson contents by students .This will help students see how each step fits into the optimal sequence and will allow time for students to ask questions or seek clarification. - Practical supervision. - Participation in all class activities - Assessment of seminars - Self assessment through short quizzes - Regular recording of class attendance
- early acquisition of basic skills

(d) Communication Information Technology and Numerical Skills (i) Skills to be developed

-Improve public speaking and scientific writing skills through reports & home works, presentations and discussions - The lesson itself should contain a variety of methods, and opportunities for reinforcement and feedback. - Improve communication:

(ii) Teaching strategies

Grammatically simple presentation Appropriate language Avoid padding language Brevity, appeal and coverage Main points early unless building up Repeat Keep fluent

(iii) Methods of

Student participation and the level of effectiveness


(Lesson should be beginning with class bonding sessions, with a recap of previous lesson).

(e) Psychomotor Skills (i) Skills to be - Knowledge is in the head developed - Caring in the heart

(ii) Teaching strategies

- Putting it together is in the hands Our job is to know or to do this. - A diagnostic imaging radiographer requires good psychomotor skills for manipulation of high technology equipment. - Imitation See then do - Manipulation hands-on-practice - Precision Practice-practice-practice - Articulation - Integration - Student knows why - Student knows when

(iii) Methods of assessment 6. Schedule of The student's psychomotor skills are evaluated by Assessment Tasks clinical rotation experience.

- Radiographic image interpretation skills.

F. Facilities Required 1. Accommodation

2. Computing resources
Strategies for Obtaining Student Feedback on Quality of Teaching

2. Other Strategies for Evaluation of Teaching

- Periodic review and revalidation involving external panel members. - Peer teaching observation.
3. Processes for Improvement of Teaching

- Regular updating in professional and training - Updating of teaching resources - Staff participation in the staff appraisal scheme and institutional staff development - I check carefully the following three points: 1. Whether students were able to understand well about what I taught. 2. Whether students were able to put it into practice after understanding. 3. Whether students were able to become better after practicing. - Check marking or assignment tasks by an independent faculty member of a sample of examination papers of student work, periodic exchange and remarking of a sample of assignments with a faculty member in another institution. - Reviewing feedback on the quality of the course and planning for improvement - Regular course team meetings and comprehensive annual review and planning.
