  Introduction: In the recent decades, a revision of the traditional methods of teaching and using new methods of active learning has been felt in the educational system and the application of these methods in various sciences such as medical sciences has increased. The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of interactive and task-based learning methods compared to the traditional methods of teaching to undergraduates.

  Method: A survey carried out on 45 students of surgical technology and anesthesia who attended in the Research Methods Course. A reliable and valid questionnaire including ten items was used to collect data on students’ satisfaction with the interactive and task based teaching methods. The data were collected and analyzed using SPSS-V16.

  Results: The findings of the study showed that most of the students were significantly more satisfied with the interactive and task-based teaching methods compared to the conventional lecturing method. Of 34 students who attended in the survey, %56.3 completely agreed and %43.8 agreed with the interactive and task based teaching methods. The highest score of satisfaction (3.56) was given to task-based learning.

  Conclusion: The findings suggest that students’ satisfaction with the interactive and task-based teaching methods may direct them towards deeper learning compared to the conventional uni-directional methods.
