Purpose: The purpose of the study was to describe the development and implementation of a Team-based Learning (TBL) educational model in a predoctoral education course to assess its effectiveness in promoting student learning as measured by knowledge acquisition and student satisfaction.

Methods: An interprofessional education course used the TBL structure for the second-year dental students, in which students had an opportunity to first work on the questions individually and then in groups. Each instruction session began with a readiness assurance test (RAT), which students were asked to complete in two formats: each student answered on their own, then each team worked on the same questions to arrive at a consensus decision followed by a team-based application exercise.

Investigating an errorless learning approach for developing dental operative technique skills: A pilot study.

Eur J Dent Educ 2018 Nov 24;22(4):e706-e714. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

School of Public Health, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

Introduction: Explicit instruction (conscious knowledge/rules) is generally used for learning dental operative skills; however, recent work has demonstrated advantages of learning skills implicitly with minimal accrual of conscious knowledge and reduced attentional demands. Therefore, this study examined the effects of learning handpiece manipulation skills explicitly (errorful) and implicitly (errorless: limited error detection/correction) under conditions of increased attentional demands (ie multitasking and additional instructions).

Materials And Methods: Non-dental university students were randomly assigned to errorless (n = 11) or errorful (n = 8) groups. Read More
