Cracking the Gen Z Code: Teaching Dentistry in the 21st Century

Cracking the Gen Z Code: Teaching Dentistry in the 21st Century

Recorded On: 06/09/2022

Generation Z, a cohort after the millennials, has grown up with unparalleled technological influences like smartphones and social media. Traditional teaching tools, such as classroom lectures and textbooks, do not as readily appeal to them. As we “rise from the COVID-19 pandemic” towards the future, we need to foster new ways to teach a new cohort of students entering dental schools. In this complimentary webinar, two speakers will discuss strategies and course design of their individual courses that use a hybrid course format. They will discuss ways to follow a more “learner-centric” model, which will help to cultivate equity and inclusiveness in the Generation Z classroom. 

Note: A version of this program was presented at the 2022 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Philadelphia, PA. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify modern tools to enhance the education of students in both didactic and clinical settings in the post-COVID era.
  2. Outline the various successes and failures in designing coursework to teach the Generation Z students.
  3. Discuss the use of several techniques to make the learning environment inclusive, equitable and focused on the Generation Z learner.
