DENT 4139 - Teaching Selective

[1-100 Hours]
The teaching selective experience is intended for dental students who have an interest in a career in dental education. Students gain practical experience working with course directors serving as faculty mentors to teach in the basic science, preclinical or clinical science courses taught to dental, dental hygiene and/or dental laboratory technology students. Faculty mentors introduce the students to various techniques used to educate professional students. To enroll in this program, the students must contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (Dr. Andrieu), who will work with the student to identify appropriate departments and mentors. The student then must submit a proposal identifying: the faculty mentor(s) he/she will work with; the course(s) he/she will be involved with and the estimated number of hours of credit being sought. The faculty mentor will confirm the proposal and will determine how many clock hours the student is awarded based on work completed This proposal must be approved by the faculty mentor(s), appropriate department head(s) and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs prior to enrollment in the selective. Students will be evaluated by the selected faculty mentor(s) on a ‘pass’ (successful) or ‘fail’ (unsuccessful) basis. Teaching credit will be given for course/lecture/tutoring/program preparation as well as for the time spent delivering the prepared material.
