Continuing to Bridge the Clinical Gap



Digital Dentistry Online Symposium
Session synopsis: 

ADEE in collaboration with VirtEasy by HRV hosted an online symposium on Digital Dentistry, with a particular focus on simulation within the Clinical Skills environment.

Building on the Bridging the Gap workshops held at ADEE 2018 in Oslo and 2019 in Berlin, this event  presents experts from The University of Sheffield, Cardiff University (UK) and HRV (France) discussing their experiences of the ways in which simulation is being used to provide meaningful and relevant qualitative feedback for students.  It also discussed the ways in which the reflection process can be effectively supported and nurtured as part of the simulator experience. A real time example of the Virteasy platform was also offered. 

ADEE's new platform supporting the delivery of digital dental education (DigEdDent) is launched and the session concluded with open Q&A and discussion with delegates.
