Dates: Nov 08-08, 2013

Beginning in November, take advantage of ongoing learning from the 2013 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition. ADEA's new, complimentary webinars for members include two educational sessions that were rated among the highest by participants from the 2013 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Seattle.
The first webinar, "Why Throw Students to the Wolves: Maximizing Outreach Program Value," with presenters Mark Fitzgerald, D.D.S., M.S., Howard Hamerink, D.D.S. and Bill Piskorowski, D.D.S., from the University of Michigan, will take place on November 8 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
A universal challenge of community-based dental education (CBDE) programs is enhancing dental education experiences for students at remote sites designed to efficiently provide dental care to diverse and underserved populations. These seemingly conflicting goals often lead to a less than ideal student learning environment resulting in symbolically "throwing our students to the wolves." Fortunately, both objectives, educational and service, can be achieved through the application of andragogical (adult-centered) teaching techniques. The webinar will present assessment tools for off-campus clinical site development, andragogical concepts applicable to a CBDE setting, methods to enhance student reflection and positive self-assessment, measurement of student performance and competency and opportunities to provide interprofessional educational experiences.
- Identify assessment tools appropriate for developing and continuously improving off-campus clinical sites.
- Measure student performance, competency, and create positive self-assessment using andragogical concepts applicable to a community based dental educational setting.
- Create opportunities to provide IPE experiences in Off-campus clinical sites.
