Teaching is an art. To make teaching more effective and outcome based, different techniques should be adopted. The utility of different techniques and use of different media to make lecture more effective depends on learners preferences. Understanding the differences in learners’ preferences & use of media like OHP (over head projector sheet), PPT (power point presentation), chalk board method for communication develops education system. With this objective to know the students preferences for use of different teaching media to enhance their learning process, the study was undertaken. It revealed that students preferred use of power point teaching in concurrence with chalk board to learn basic science subjects along with para clinical & clinical sciences. To learn basic principles of Ayurveda and to learn Samhitas they strongly recommended chalk board method. Our study concluded that the maximum benefit of visual aids is obtained only in concurrence with a well-structured lecture. The optimum use of audiovisual aids is essential for deriving their benefits. PowerPoint presentation and Black Board teachings are equally important and should be used as an instruction tool for their respective aspects oflearning excluding Samhitas
