Chew on This! A New Tool for Flipped Classrooms and Teaching Occlusion

The appeal of the flipped classroom approach as an educational tool centers on its ability to increase engagement, optimize the time for in-class instruction and improve student mastery. Implementation, however, is often difficult. Where do you begin and what technologies best support a flipped classroom?

In this webinar, we present a case study on how an online module created through Voicethread, a cloud-based learning tool for enhancing student engagement, was used to teach the concept and technique of taking a Centric Relation Record. Subsequent time in the classroom and clinic was used to deepen students’ understanding of the technique, and survey data revealed that the approach improved students’ skills.
