60 Minute Seminar
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are areas of emerging technology that dental educators are using to engage students and enhance collaborative learning in the classroom. VR/AR can provide advanced visualization and action-based learning in an immersive environment that is intuitive and student-centered. Educators should be aware of concepts, applications, modalities, and limitations for VR/AR use in dental education. Participants will learn about VR and AR, examine how VR/AR can impact dental education and experience VR and AR first-hand. Participants will also brainstorm on ways to incorporate AR and VR in the classroom.
