[en] Science fiction can be used in the classroom as a fantastic narrative which exploits the imaginative outlooks of modern science. In this paper some of the teaching prospects which science fiction offers are analysed, and for instance, those offered by A.C. Clarke's Maelstrom II are developed. (Author)
[en] To assess the optimal structure of an introductory curriculum (IC) for radiation oncology residents, including the perceived utility of a 2-day off-site “boot camp,” and evaluate the success of a pilot introductory radiation oncology curriculum (IROC) based on these initial data.
[en] The formation of human resources in the area of imaging diagnosed and therapeutic at the Universidad de Costa Rica, was carried out during the last 38 years and has been necessary to realize an assessment of that trajectory and value the impact it has had, the race today, in radiodiagnostic services, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine. The present work was carried out in order of providing to the Escuela de Tecnologias en Salud, the Universidad de Costa Rica, radiology services, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine and all those involved and interested in the area, a documented and rigorous analysis regarding the trajectory and characterization of the different stages of historical development of human resources training in imaging diagnosed and therapeutic. Also, suffered changes in the curriculum are considered in accordance with historical events and service needs. The analysis of each curriculum was performed and used for training of technicians and graduates in nuclear medicine and ionizing radiation, as well as the curriculum for the training of bachelors and degrees in imaging diagnosed and therapeutics, as part of the curriculum evolution in the formation of human resources. The strengths, deficiencies and challenge in each curriculum were presented, determining in this way how the changes made to the curriculum meet the needs and demands of radiology services, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy.

[es]La formacion de recursos humanos en el area de imagenologia diagnostica y terapeutica en la Universidad de Costa Rica se ha llevado a cabo durante los ultimos 38 anos y ha sido necesario realizar una evaluacion de esa trayectoria y valorar el impacto que ha tenido, la carrera hoy dia, en los servicios de radiodiagnostico, radioterapia y medicina nuclear. El presente trabajo se ha efectuado con el proposito de brindar a la Escuela de Tecnologias en Salud, a la Universidad de Costa Rica, a los servicios de radiologia, radioterapia, medicina nuclear y a todas las personas relacionadas e interesadas en el area, un analisis documentado y riguroso referente a la trayectoria y caracterizacion de las diferentes etapas del desarrollo historico de la formacion de recursos humanos en imagenologia diagnostica y terapeutica. Ademas, los cambios sufridos en los planes de estudio son considerados y como estos se ajustan al acontecer historico y a las necesidades de los servicios. El analisis de cada plan de estudios fue realizado y utilizado para la formacion de tecnicos y diplomados en medicina nuclear y radiaciones ionizantes, asi como el plan de estudios para la formacion de bachilleres y licenciados en imagenologia diagnostica y terapeutica, como parte de la evolucion curricular en la formacion de recurso humano. Las fortalezas, las carencias y los retos en cada uno de los curriculums fueron presentados, determinando de esta manera como las modificaciones realizadas a los planes de estudio responden a las necesidades y demandas de los servicios de radiologia, medicina nuclear y radioterapia.

[en] A classroom demonstration model has been designed, machined and successfully tested in different learning environments to facilitate understanding of the mechanics of truss structures, in which struts are subject to purely axial load and deformation. Gaining confidence with these structures is crucial for the development of lattice models, which occur in many fields of physics and engineering. (paper)
[en] Reflective learning is an important feature of many radiography courses. Writing tasks are used both to promote and monitor student reflective learning. However, students may not always fully understand the rationale behind this form of learning, nor have clear expectations about the writing required. This paper reports on an intervention to address issues identified in student reflective writing tasks based on clinical experiences. Lecturers noted a lack of depth in student observations and tendency to express criticism in a judgemental and self-righteous tone. In response to this, a workshop was developed to prepare students for reflective learning and to develop their awareness and skills in the reflective writing process. Potential areas of difficulty in reflective learning are considered in this article, as well as how to promote a critical perspective while also encouraging students to maintain a positive regard for the patients, practitioners and institutions that enable them to learn on clinical placement.
