Abstract

Background & Objective: One method of evaluation with the intent to select and modify teaching methods in universities is the evaluation of student's opinions. Team teaching by faculty members is a routine method of education in universities. The present study evaluated student's satisfaction with team teaching in Babol University of Medical Sciences, Iran, during the first and second semesters of 2011-2012.

Methods: In the present descriptive, analytical study, 461 students of Babol University of Medical Sciences who had experienced team teaching were randomly selected. The participants completed a questionnaire the reliability and validity of which had been previously approved. The questionnaire contained 19 questions, based on the 5-point Likert scale ("very high", "high", "moderate", "low", and "very low"). The resulting data were analyzed using SPSS software and compared using t-test and ANOVA.

Results: The results showed that 8.2% of students partly opposed and 0.4% of them absolutely approved the use of team teaching method. The highest frequency of answers (56.9%) were assigned in the "moderate" level. Nearly 34.5% of students approved the use of this method. Students of dentistry and laboratory sciences showed the highest and lowest tendency toward this method, respectively. Higher year students showed less tendency toward team teaching method. There were no significant differences between boys' and girls' answers in respect to this method.

Conclusion: It seems that Babol University of Medical Sciences students did not significantly oppose the use of team teaching method. Nevertheless, in order to correct the existing small problems, it is essential to revise the implementation technique of this teaching method.
