Pathway Aligned! Student Involvement in Classroom Improvement


We know student feedback is important, but what happens when students aren’t necessarily objective evaluators? Sometimes input can be counterproductive—especially when the classroom is emotionally charged. But, what if there was a way to channel this into constructive feedback that can benefit you and the classroom, or even a school as a whole? Even better, what if there were a student-led organization whose purpose was to increase educational satisfaction among students and faculty? With the right scaffolding, most feedback can be more helpful than educators might realize.

During this free webinar, we will explore how the Roseman Possibilities Team (RPT) works to improve classroom interaction and satisfaction among both learners and educators. This unique approach allows the classroom to overcome potential obstacles in dental education and emphasizes the ability to discover their educational pathways.

: This is a preview of the session that will be featured at the 2020 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition. Join our 2020 celebration with a “sneak peek” of this important topic.


  1. Identify barriers to receiving effective student feedback.
  2. Discover a framework that promotes student involvement in classroom improvement and encourages real-time constructive feedback as a pathway for future educators.
  3. Demonstrate innovative ways to implement useful data from student feedback and develop a framework that has a positive impact on dental education.
