There is an inherent difficulty in teaching to dental residents, that of knowing at what level to make your lectures. How do you balance lectures so that residents fresh out of dental school aren’t bored, while those who’ve been practicing for years before returning to school aren’t overwhelmed. I have used Articulate Storyline to create anatomy review modules that allow the students to work at their own pace. Unlike traditional or recorded lectures, these modules involve active learning. Students interact with the slides to bring up new layers, each containing additional information about the subject. They also allow you to create quizzes, giving you the ability to assess student learning as the student uses the module. Modules can also interact with Canvas, so that the quiz grades are automatically uploaded to the “Grades” section.
