Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This study on the multimedia principle of pretraining examined the effect the method of pretraining had on achievement of OT students learning sensory integration theory. Pretraining specifies dividing content into two learning phases to increase comprehension. Using pretest-posttest design, 145 OT students received intervention via a video module and lecture. Results indicated pretraining with a static concept map was more effective than the other two methods investigated.
