Abstract: Multimedia technology and problem based learning not only allow more realistic interaction between students and the learning context, but can also facilitate integration of material from previous experiences, and can encourage students to critically analyze information from a variety of perspectives. However there is little research relating to the effect of the modality of representation upon learning, especially in the area of skill evaluation in clinical settings. This pilot study conducted among the first aid volunteers at St John Ambulance Australia (New South Wales), reported on the effect of modality of representation (video or pen-and-paper) upon learning with respect to their attitudes, problem solving skills, and clinical decision-making abilities. Although the study only involved a small sample, participants did indicate different beliefs about the utility of video and pen-and-paper for promoting reflective practice and assessing ability. A larger sample size study is being considered in the near future.
