Blended Learning in Dentistry: 3-D Resources for Problem-based and Case-based Learning


The objectives of the TDG project are to enable students to maximize opportunities for learning by integrate face-to-face and virtual modalities, to enhance student engagement and motivation through further incorporating interactive technologies into the problem-based curriculum and case-based curriculum through BDS I to BDS V, and to extend the use of e-learning in dental case based scenarios by integrating the knowledge they have acquired. The project has already produced outputs of 1 paper publication, 5 conference abstracts and 1 invited speech.
