Computer Applications in Dental Education. A Conference Report.
National Institutes of Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Dental Health.
In the first section of this book, seven papers are presented which were given at the working conference on Computer Applications in Dental Education held in San Francisco in October 1969. Three of the papers are statements by educators (Lawrence M. Stolurow, Ralph E. Grubb, and John A. Starkweather) who have been active for several years in the area of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) outside the context of dental education. The remaining papers deal with the use of computers in four areas of dental education: admissions, instructions, dental school operations, and evaluation of clinical course work. In the second section, along with brief reports on the four conference discussion groups, summaries are presented of computer projects in progress at the dental schools represented at the conference. The project summaries are divided into four areas of application: Admissions and academic evaluation, CAI, dental school operations and educational administration, and student evaluation in clinical course work. The types of projects summarized include computer assistance in the admission process, automated scanning analysis of dental X-rays, development of an automated dental training simulator, and computerized student evaluation systems. A directory of conference participants includes a brief indication of the computer system, areas of application, and project status of each conference. (Author/JY)
