A. Online learning and technology-enhanced learning in dentistry: Toward the new normal
(Associate Professor Dr. Praweenya Suwannatthachote, Department of Educational Technology and Communications, Faculty of Education, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand)
Online learning and digital technology are transforming how we delivery knowledge and skills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Appropriate use of technologies based on instructional design is central to developing learners's; performance. This workshop will focus on instructional design for online learning and the use of digital tools for teaching and learning. A discussion activity is designed to gain more interaction among participations’ experiences related to online teaching and learning during emergency remote learning in March2020 and how to redesign teaching and learning using online learning for the new normal.
B. Shifting assessment of knowledge
(Associate Professor Dr. Cherdsak Iramaneerat, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand)
Assessment of knowledge is a core element of health science education. The traditional model of knowledge assessment has been challenged by recent changes in technology, economy, and public health policy. COVID-19 pandemic rapidly accelerated the needs to change assessment strategies. Dental teachers, educators, and dental school administrators have been forced to rethink about assessment approaches that have been used for a long time. Adapting to this education disruption requires a paradigm shift on assessment in many aspects: what, when, where, how, why, and by whom. In this workshop, the discussion will be focused on assessment of knowledge. Participants will explore many interesting issues that a dental school needs to adapt in order to provide high quality education in a disruptive world.
- What should we assess? Is fact memorization still important to be a dentist?
- When should we assess learners? Should examination always occur at the end of semester? Are there any benefits for giving examination early?
- Where do we assess learners? Is it possible to assess students online?
- How can we assess learners? What options are available? What are advantages and
- limitations for various assessment methods for dental students? How can we administer
- valid assessment in an online format?
- Why do we assess learners? Assessment for feedback or making pass/fail decision
- Who are the persons responsible for student assessment? Should student assessment be restricted to teachers? Should nurses, co-workers, or peer involve with assessment?
C. Re-designing courses for online engagement during COVID-19 (8.30-10.30 AM)
(Associate Professor Dr. Susan Bridges, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong)
One advantage of the emergency remote teaching pivot to online learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has been a re-examination of the role of technologies in our course offerings. Course designs often follow a pattern of presentation of content followed by active learning approaches. In this session, I will share some course design alternatives and explore how we may use these principles to re-design online courses that prioritise student collaboration and deep engagement. I will begin by sharing some of my own course designs which have drawn on inquiry-based approaches. First, I will share my teaching team’s experience of adopting design principles from problem-based learning to devise and deliver a fully online asynchronous Certificate course with the LKS Faculty of Medicine at The University of Hong Kong. Second, I will share my 2019-21 Masters level course in the Faculty of Education designed using the principles of case-based learning and my ideas for re-designing this as a fully online course. Workshop participants are asked to bring along the course outline for one of their current courses (face-to-face or online). Your course will form the basis of the workshop activity of re-designing for online engagement.
Participants kindly prepare one-page of the course outline for discussion in each break-out room.
D. Educational tools for online learning
(Dr. Patrachart Komolkiti, Learning Innovation Centre, Chulalongkorn University)
Moving classes from classrooms to online is not just about talking to a camera instead of students. While similar outcomes are expected, there are many aspects of online learning that require different approaches. Fortunately, many tools are available to facilitate online learning. Participants will have some hands-on trials to see how technologies can enhance the learning experience.
E.Student Experiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic
(The Asia Pacific Dental Students Association)
During the COVID-19 pandemic, undergraduate dental education has changed drastically toward the new normal. Teaching and learning moved to online platform while laboratory and clinical practice were postponed. Facilitating for students and educators to adapt to the new way of education was (and now is still) challenging. In this session, student voices from various countries on (1) how educators, dental schools, and universities supported their students during the difficult time and (2) what should be prepared for the future of undergraduate dental education will be presented and discussed.
F.Supporting clinical skills learning in the classroom and online
(Professor Dr. Michael George Botelho, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong)
The acquisition and experience of clinical skills learning is a complex and resource intensive phenomena. The learning of these skills is largely unstructured and the transition from theory to practice creates uncertainties, gaps in knowledge and stresses for the learner. How can we better prepare our learners during their clinical skills learning and practice? Using in-class and online pedagogies we can scaffold specific learning experiences during their transition to clinical practice by providing them with problem solving and clinical decision-making skills. This presentation proposes a framework to help educators plan learning experiences and in particular will explore the Observation of Videoed Expert-student Dialogue (OVED) as well as the use of a novel flipped class model in Simulation Laboratory learning.
