Early Career Educators Award 2014
To be recognised by your peers…
I am delighted and honoured to receive the Early Career Educator Excellence in Dental Education Award from the Association of Dental Education in Europe. This achievement is a big milestone in my career as a dental educator as it demonstrates recognition of teaching excellence by my peers at an international level.
My interest in dental education has made me attend and present at ADEE meetings all over Europe since 2009, and over the years, I have been encouraged to get involved with special interest groups. The networking opportunities together with presenting my work in dental education have been excellent preparation for this award.
This recognition has opened many doors for me and allowed me to meet new people in dental education further afield. I now have the confidence to take on larger challenges and help other dental educators, both internationally and within my own academic institution to strive for excellence. I would like to thank ADEE for this award and to congratulate it for providing this forum for dental education.
