UGARTE MARTINEZ, Yeny et al. Methodological strategy for a better use of teaching aids in Health Technology. Rev EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2014, vol.6, n.1, pp.114-128. ISSN 2077-2874.

Background: it is needed that medical education teachers make use of the teaching aids in a correct and effective way to enhance the teaching-learning process. Methods: a descriptive study was conducted at the Medical University Branch in Sagua la Grande, from January 2008 to March 2009, with the objective of developing a methodological strategy for the use of teaching aids by the teachers of Health Technology courses. The sample was selected through a non-probability sampling. It consisted of 53 teachers. Different methods were combined for carrying out the scientific tasks. From the theoretical level: analytic-synthetic method, historical and logical method, deductive-inductive method and modeling; for the study of the collected material, which provided the theoretical foundations about the teaching aids and the trends about teacher training strategies in the subject. Empirical methods were used, such as documentary analysis, observation of classes, surveys of teachers and experts for collecting information. Mathematical methods were used for processing by means of descriptive statistics with absolute frequency distribution and percentages. Results: difficulties were found in the use of teaching aids by the teachers; therefore, a strategy that contains actions related to methodological and professional development was developed. These actions are designed with a systemic approach, and aimed at solving the problems. Conclusions: the experts who were consulted expressed that the actions are affordable, achievable and relevant, and it is possible to apply them at the workplace.
