for Abstracts

In Utah, you're bound to experience the unforgettable.

The shift from physical model-based teaching to VR-haptics-based teaching in dentistry involves a transition in pedagogical principles and instructional approaches. For example, while physical model-based teaching is constrained by the availability of physical resources, VR-haptics-based teaching provides educators with the flexibility to create diverse clinical scenarios, enabling a more adaptable and personalized learning experience. This unique and rich learning environment also comes with challenges related to customization, feedback, and assessment, as educators navigate the intricate balance of tailoring virtual scenarios to individual learning needs and implementing effective evaluation mechanisms.
