Teaching and Learning research encompasses theoretical approaches, educational strategies and evaluation in dental education.
- Theory of learning
Research in this area focuses on investigating contemporary theories of teaching and learning which include situated learning theory, social cognitive theory, workplace-base learning theory and experimental learning and reflective practice.
- Educational Strategies
Educational strategies researched at the Institute of Dentistry are focused at enhancing the student learning experience.
Evaluation research is the systematic assessment of the worth or merit of time, money, effort and resources spent in order to achieve a goal. This theme includes studies aimed at improving practice, influencing policy and decision-making. We focus on research evaluating the impact of dental education at a society level and studies showing behaviour change as a result of dental education.
