Summer Teacher Training Institute in Dental Assisting, 1967. Final Report.
Linn, Elizabeth M.; And Others
Five dentists, 17 dental assistants, and three dental hygienists participated in the dental assistant teacher training institute held at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June 25 to July 21, 1967. Curriculum objectives were based upon analysis of the job of the dental assisting instructor; the following units were chosen to meet the objectives: (1) orientation, (2) teaching and learning, (3) evaluation and testing, and (4) organization and management. On the first day of the institute, participants compiled a questionnaire regarding their needs and objectives. Some indicated they would have administrative responsibilities, others primarily teaching responsibilities, and others a combination of both. The objectives stated were in keeping with the objectives previously developed for the institute. Teaching methods included practice teaching of institute members, lecture, discussion, and small group activity. Written evaluations at the end of the third and fourth weeks and four months after the institute indicated general satisfaction with the outcomes. Both administrators and classroom teachers indicated utilization of learnings in the post institute evaluation. An appendix includes forms, content outlines and instructional materials, and evaluation questionnaires. (JK)
