About the Plenary Sessions:

Keynote Session: "730 Days from Now" on Thursday, October 24, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Leonard Brody, 2013The 2013 ADEA Fall Meetings kicked off with an engaging presentation by Leonard Brody, a technology visionary, who understands how technology, disruptive innovations, economic and environmental pressures, ongoing globalization, and demographic shifts are shaping how people behave and organizations work. What is on the horizon that dental educators should know more about, but are too busy to see, and need an expert's perspective to better understand how ongoing changes in technology will impact dental education?

Leonard Brody has been called "a controversial leader of the new world order." He is a highly respected entrepreneur, venture capitalist, bestselling author and two-time Emmy-nominated media visionary. A sought-after speaker, Leonard has lectured at leading institutions, such as Stanford, the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, the G8, and the United Nations.

Brody is the co-founder of NowPublic.com, a company that Time magazine named one of the "Top 50 Websites in the World," and that was inducted into the Newseum in Washington, DC. He is the president of the Clarity Digital Group, an organization that oversees one of the world's largest online news conglomerates, and acts as an advisor to venture-capital funds in the US, Europe, and Asia, and to companies such as the Associated Press, Alliance Atlantis, Derby County Football Club, and MTV Enterprises. Brody was also the Senior Technology Advisor to the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. Learn more about Leonard Brody.PDF

Joint Plenary Session: The Impact of Technology on Pedagogy and Student Learning (including Q&A) on Friday, October 25, 8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
Following on from the keynote presentation on Thursday, Eugene Anderson, Ph.D., ADEA Chief Policy Officer and Managing Vice President, facilitated a discussion with a higher education thought leader and dental educators who are actively engaged in incorporating educational technology in classroom and clinical instruction. Dr. Anderson led a discussion about innovative uses of technology with Carolyn Jarmon, Ph.D., Vice President of the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT). Dr. Jarmon leads research-based projects using information technology to redesign learning environments that produce better learning outcomes for students at a reduced cost to the institution. NCAT furthers its mission of creating lasting change in higher education through a number of initiatives designed to provide research-based solutions, expertise and support to educational systems interested in improving quality, increasing access and using resources more effectively.

Following the initial discussion, two dental educators who are using technology successfully joined the discussion: Cynthia Amyot, M.S.D.H., Ed.Spec., Ed.D., Professor and Director of Distance Education and Faculty Development at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry; and Harold Henson, RDH, M.Ed., Associate Professor, Director, Simulation, and Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. Dr. Amyot and Prof. Henson discussed their reasons for adapting technology in teaching, what was successful, how they are continuing to experiment with technology in teaching and what they have learned.
