    Lectures still make the majority of our instructional strategy due to large number of students in our classes. In spite of fact that Lectures cannot be eliminated from our curriculum, still our lectures are heavy, data based and boring. By using Bloom taxonomy if we analyze our lecture at the cognitive level we will be surprised to find out that our lecture do not go beyond comprehension level. The lecture world wide has now transformed into a new teaching and learning experience with interaction, generating interest and creating knowledge. By using Gagnes events of instruction, we can improve our lecture into an active learning experience. This workshop we will have a experience of lectures at higher cognitive level and then have a practice session of lecturing at higher cognition.

    Biomedical Research and medical writing are still underdeveloped in Pakistan and there is a race to publish as many manuscripts by faculty, residents and medical students. Usually there is no formal training in ethical aspects of medical research and writing at the under-graduate or post graduate level in most of the medical schools in Pakistan. Even faculty members are not clear about the implications of indulging in deliberate or in-deliberate plagiarism and scientific misconduct. This 3 hours’ workshop will be of benefit to the any health care professional and under graduate and post graduate students and help them understand the ethical concerns in medical research and writing.

    The history of assessment is more than 2000 years old. During this time, it has passed through many modifications which shaped it to its present form. SEQ is an assessment tool which is unique in its advantages and limitations. No matter how easy it looks to construct a quality SEQ with the key, the reality is otherwise. Even more difficult is the scoring. The latest advent in this regard is use of computer technology to keep the process standardised and consistent.
