25/04/2018: Palestra Internacional “How will we  be teaching Dentistry in the year 2025?”

Dia 25/04 (quarta)  das 13 às 14 hs, a sessão do SIG Teleodontologia (Rede RUTE) terá a palestra:


How will we  be teaching Dentistry in the year 2525?

As communication technology advances, will the present delivery of educational materials via distance learning and mobile technology increase? The traditional classroom will not only be flipped but it will be exploded. Will Prosthodontics cope with the rapidly evolving educational landscape?

Teaching and learning practices must evolve with the advent of new knowledge and technology.

The aim of this lecture will be to provoke debate on traditional teaching of Dentistry and suggest pathways that will enhance our educational delivery of Dentistry as a living and thriving speciality.

(The lecture is inspired by the lyrics from the 1960s song In the Year 2525 performed by Zager And Evans)
