2011 ADEA CCI Summer Liaisons Meeting
ADEA's Commission on Change and Innovation in Dental Education Summer Liaisons Meeting provides an opportunity for ADEA CCI Liaisons to convene with their colleagues, explore new concepts, and expand their capabilities to serve as change agents in their home institutions.
Engaging Leaders for Change and Innovation
The meeting opened with welcoming remarks from ADEA President Leo E. Rouse, followed by an introduction and overview from Dr. Eugene L. Anderson, Associate Executive Director & Director of the ADEA Center for Educational Policy and Research.
Each day of the meeting was filled with engaging speakers and plenty of opportunities for networking and group collaboration. Attendees also had to the chance to visit the ADEA Curriculum Resource Center (ADEA CRC) lounge, where there were live demonstrations of the web portal’s dental education resources. Liaisons were encouraged to participate in informal discussions about future curriculum resource topics.
The meeting focused on recent “game changing” events in dental education. Some of these major changes include the revised Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) Standards for Dental Education Programs and the Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations (JCNDE) plan to develop a single, integrated National Board Dental Examination Part I and Part II.
