About this working group
Established academics from the four DentAlliance partner universities working collaboratively to transform education in oral, dental, and craniofacial health sciences to the overall benefit of patient care and population health.
WORKING GROUP MISSION
World-leading expertise | Global insights | Future perspectives.
To facilitate and enable collaborations among students, postgraduates, faculty, and staff in:
Advancing curricular designs and global educational programmes at different levels in HE and professional education
Sharing education best practice in areas oral, dental, and craniofacial health sciences by innovating with pedagogy and technologies
Collaborating on research-enhanced educational opportunities from different levels (locally within university partners’ own institution and nationally; and, across alliance-wide and global opportunity)
ACTIVITIES AND PROJECTS
Students Collaborating Online to Network and Empower
Staff and students from the four universities connect online during this pandemic since physical overseas student exchanges have been challenging to facilitate. Dental students in Australia, Singapore, UK and USA share experiences and discuss universal oral health related issues to facilitate an exchange of perspectives amongst themselves.
