Course Summary

The course is designed to meet the needs of an inter-professional care team. Dentists and Dental Care Professionals and their extended team will all benefit from the support provided by the course team, gaining the knowledge and skills needed to become effective in developing others.

The environment in which training takes place becomes a learning community. This maximises the opportunity for learning for all. Where identified, development needs are considered and supported.

Why study with us

  • Much of the course content is delivered via the University’s eLearn system, which means you can prepare work ahead of the on-campus study days and undertake additional work independently from home.
  • You’ll develop critical knowledge and an evaluation of the theory, practice, context and associated research applied to Dental Education. You’ll also undertake an independent research study in the management of Dental Education based on your personal or professional interests.
  • You’ll learn what’s needed to facilitate effective learning within and outside of the workplace. And you’ll be able to select and apply best practice principles to teaching, assessing, supporting learning and giving feedback to others.

Learning and assessment

A combination of formal input, supplementary reading, and interactive discussion plus the use of IT resources, seminars, group and practical work will help you to develop your understanding, critical analysis and ability to apply theory to practice.

The varied experience of the group will be used to share knowledge and ideas. Discussion of documentation relating to national and local policy and trends, including Standards for Dental Educators (COPDEND 2013), will encourage independent work and critical comment. Guided reading will also form part of your learning experience.


The module aims to equip you as a member of a dental team with the skills to fulfil the role of mentor with colleagues who require support to meet the requirements of professional practice in Dental care or who have been the subject of Fitness to Practise review.
