In co-operation with our Gold Partners DENTSPLY Implants we are delighted to present the inaugural Dental Educators on the Move Workshop. This workshop series offers a limited number of places to participants attending the annual ADEE meeting to explore in greater detail the skills and competences of the professional dental educator.
Each year of the programme will feature a selected topic and present a blend of theory and practical application. Participants who successfully complete the programme will be awarded ADEA and ADEE continuing professional education credit certificates for validation by their regulatory body.
This innovative and exciting workshop explores some of the key competences and skills required for International Dental Educators. The first in a series of events examines Communication and Presentation skills from both a theoretical and practical level, through three sessions.
Dr Margareta Melin
Margareta will deliver a blend of workshop and performance. Whereas the theme and content are rather traditional for communication theory, the mode of communicating/lecturing is not. The main points of the lecture will be expressed through performance by Margareta. The delegates will be engaged by being asked to discuss and act.
The session combines the theory and practice of communication, with issues of gender, power and the medium of communication in an interactive and innovative manner.
Dr Andrew I. Spielman
Andrew’s session explores how Dental students are taught a wide range of skills, knowledge and values during their training to become competent dentists. Communication skills, including listening, are key to effective patient care. Yet, they are rarely emphasized in dental curricula. The current presentation will explore ideas and examples of educational modules on communications skills and ways to weave into dental education."
Mr Joakim Jardenberg
Joakim Jardenberg drawing on his many years of expertise and experience in the fields of communication, social media and technologies will share some of the key theories and best practice in the field. Using hands on practical session the afternoon will provide delegates with opportunity to apply theory in a meaningful way offering tailored one to one feedback and peer review. Participants will be required to pre-prepare a 5 minute presentation on a topic of their choice.
ADEE are most grateful to DENTSPLY Implants for their support of the work of Dental Educators on the Move.
