    AIM The 1st European Workshop on Periodontal Education in 2009 made recommendations regarding the scope of periodontal education at undergraduate (UG), postgraduate (PG) and continuing professional development (CPD) levels, defining competencies and learning outcomes that were instrumental at the time in helping to define periodontal teaching curricula. The 19th European Workshop on Periodontology and 2nd European Consensus Workshop on Education in Periodontology (Education in Periodontology in Europe) was held in 2023 to identify changes and future developments in periodontal education (including those informed by the COVID-19 pandemic) and embracing methods and formats of periodontal teaching and training. The aim of this review was to assess current knowledge regarding education methods in periodontology, including traditional face-to-face (F2F) teaching and the move to student-centred methods, virtual learning methods and use of digital technology, as well as blended teaching and learning (including teaching delivery and assessment) at UG, PG and CPD levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS Systematic searches were conducted to identify relevant studies from the literature. Data were extracted and descriptive summaries collated. RESULTS The pandemic was a major disruptor of traditional F2F teaching but provided opportunities for rapid implementation of alternative and supplementary teaching methods. Although online learning has become an integral part of periodontal education, teachers and learners alike favour some form of F2F teaching. Blended teaching and learning are feasible in many areas of periodontal education, both for knowledge and skills acquisition as well as in assessment. Student-centred methods and blended approaches such as the flipped classroom seem highly effective, and online/virtual classrooms with both synchronous and asynchronous lectures are highly valued. Learning with haptic methods and virtual reality (VR) enhances the educational experience, especially when VR is integrated with traditional methods. The quality of the teacher continues to be decisive for the best knowledge transfer in all its forms. CONCLUSIONS Live F2F teaching continues to be highly trusted; however, all types of student-centred and interactive forms of knowledge transfer are embraced as enhancements. While digital methods offer innovation in education, blended approaches integrating both virtual and traditional methods appear optimal to maximize the achievement of learning outcomes. All areas of periodontal education (UG, PG and CPD) can benefit from such approaches; however, more research is needed to evaluate their benefits, both for knowledge transfer and skills development, as well as in assessment

    Get PDF
    The aim of writing this article is to assert Jahez point of view about educational methods. The present study has been conducted by taking benefit from qualitative approach and descriptive-analytical method and has analyzed and inferred Jahez point of view about educational methods by using existing and available resources. The inferred training methods from Jahez point of view are as follows: observation-experience and testing (learning opportunity in practice), using repetition and practice method, encouraging and punishing learners and considering its principles and points, memorizing and recalling the materials, writing and recording learned contents, teaching in group and in the form of participation of all learners, giving recommendations and guiding the learners, presenting speeches, problem- oriented teaching and discovering the problem by the learners themselves, using books and the method of stimulating several senses in teaching learners or sharing senses in the trend of learning. Key words: Islamic training, Jahez, educational methods

    The goal for this article is to express the views proposed by Avicenna regarding the methods for training and education. The current study has taken advantage of a qualitative approach with a qualitative-analytical method, and has analyzed and inferred the views held by Avicenna regarding education and civilizing methods. The educational methods inferred from his perspectives are as follows: The education method as in collective-cooperative, observation-experiment and examination (the opportunity for practical learning), the rewarding and punishment method for the learners and the rules and notes with that respect, modeling methods, repetition and practice of the learned materials, discussion and debate methods, questioning and answering methods, memorizing and retaining the information, ways to advise and guide the learners, game plays, self-discipline, moral refinement, and finally declaring love for the learners. Key Words: Moslem Scientist, Avicenna, Method, training.

    Implementation of New Educational Methods: How to Overcome Obstacles?

    A presentation of new educational methods was organized for students and teachers of the Faculty of Medicine in Mostar in 2006. Afterwards, the teachers and the students were given a questionnaire to fill on their attitude towards actual, traditional versus new educational methods. According to the results of the questionnaire, a lot of students and the majority of teachers prefer status quo, and, moreover, only 1/3 of teachers support implementation of the new educational methods. Due to the results of this survey, implementation of new educational methods was postponed for the following two years. Since the management of the Faculty of Medicine in Mostar was well aware of the fact that new educational methods help in teaching students about fundamental principles of critical thinking, life-long learning and constructive intellectual conflicts, it was concluded that implementation of new methods should be a necessity. In this academic year (2008/2009), after discussion at the Faculty Council, a new course »Modern educational methods« has been introduced into the curriculum. As the first phase, a new transitional method named »Contradiction with Evidence Based Solution« has been introduced in the workshop session. The proposed new method is a combination of the old, traditional presentation done by a teacher, and new methods which are student-centred. Realistic expectation is that implementation of other new educational methods would be easier after introduction of this transitional method. This implementation trial should be seen as a pilot project that could be introduced to other faculties, at first to those of the University of Mostar, and afterwards to other universities in the region

    Improving the Quality of Technology-Enhanced Learning for Computer Programming Courses

    Teaching computing courses is a major challenge for the majority of lecturers in Libyan higher learning institutions. These courses contain numerous abstract concepts that cannot be easily explained using traditional educational methods. This paper describes the rationale, design, development and implementation stages of an e-learning package (including multimedia resources such as simulations, animations, and videos) using the ASSURE model. This training package can be used by students before they attend practical computer lab sessions, preparing them by developing technical skills and applying concepts and theories presented in lecture through supplementary study and exercises
