Case-based learning (CBL) is a highly interactive instructional approach frequently used in medical education. A core element of CBL is a teacher-guided discussion of a patient case; but how effective are teachers' questions at eliciting a student response and assessing student learning? This study examined teachers' questions and student response behaviors in a medical education program, and proposes ways that teachers can make these didactic elements of medical education more effective and meaningful.
