Podcast: Dental Education at the University of Maryland
Posted by Joan Phaup
I spoke recently with Professor James Craig and Instructional Technology Specialist Sarita Sanjoy from the University of Maryland Dental School about the school’s move to a new building and the innovative uses of technology the move has brought to to all aspects of the dental program. On the academic side, this has included implementing the use of Sonic Foundry Mediasite, which the school uses to capture lectures in order to make content available to students 24/7.
We talked about how the school uses Questionmark Perception together with Blackboard and the many lessons Sarita and James have learned about effective security measures, the use of assessment analytics to improve instruction and testing, and supportive ways to train faculty for preparing electronic assessments, among other topics. I hope you will enjoy and share this podcast!
