Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the “VR-Haptic Thinkers” meetups for?

Many dental educators are still skeptical about the usefulness of haptics-reinforced virtual reality-based technology in supporting dental education and training. However, it is time to embrace the future on VR-haptic technology-enhanced dental education, as designed by the international VR-Haptic Thinkers panel of experts.

What will the talks be about?

The meetup has been given the theme of “VR-Haptic Dentistry, Pedagogy, and Curriculum Evolution”. We believe this theme is very timely as in recent years we’ve all faced many challenges in education and research and have had to deal with rapid changes in supportive VR-haptic education.

Is it on-site, online, or hybrid? When?

The hybrid interactive meetup will be held at the University of Utah on 7th of June 2024. We will discuss the educational aspects of VR-haptic technology and how to engage educators in various activities to offer high quality learning and training experiences for students.
