Remote Education During a Nationwide Pandemic: Teaching and Learning (Dental Teachers and Students) During COVID-19

  •  Jamshaid Mansoor    


In the past few months, a viral pandemic has spread worldwide and continues to disrupt the everyday life of the whole population. The action plans: During this time, dentistry in the U.K. has suffered and the majority of dental care has ceased, with only some centres being able to offer emergency care for patients. Live education: The education of our dental students has been considered and modified to offer continuation of teaching and learning in a remote fashion, given the current conditions. Discussion: This format of teaching and learning has identified new possibilities relating to what is possible in dental education in the U.K., with the adequate organisation, dedication and flexibility that some of the electronic applications within remote education allow. Conclusion: The success of such a format lacks any published evidence, but the initial feedback from our dental students has been grossly positive, and; combined with such multiple benefits, may suggest a role for different formats for dental education in the future.
