This paper discusses the use of case scenario oral presentations as a learning and assessment tool for cohorts of Bachelor of Medical Radiation (n=38) and Bachelor of Nursing (n=12) students studying Pathology and Pathophysiology, respectively, in their undergraduate programs. It focuses on the impressions of students about this approach to learning and teaching as a group process. Survey methodology was used to evaluate case scenario oral presentations. Results revealed overall satisfaction in terms of acquisition of knowledge and skills. The majority of students surveyed found this learning and teaching approach useful in the areas of individual learning, assessment of learning, student–student interaction, and development of research, communication and lifelong learning skills.
