Knowledge E and the International Federation of Dental Educators and Associations (IFDEA) have signed an agreement to further raise the importance of teaching excellence in dental education. Their first pilot programme will contribute to supporting Egypt in its ambition to move towards a competency-based integrated curriculum. It will start at the end of September 2020 with a Leadership Orientation session for Deans and Vice-Deans of Egyptian faculties. Selected participants (professors and assistant professors) will be invited to engage in a series of interactive online workshops in the sessions: Curriculum Design, Teaching & Technology, and Assessment Design & Implementation.
Through this collaboration, Knowledge E and IFDEA will work together on several initiatives across the region. This new partnership will support the development of Knowledge E’s mission of moving towards a more knowledgeable world. Participating and improving the global community of dental educators is at the core of IFDEA’s mission. It is expected that by collaborating with Knowledge E will lead to a better understanding of the different approaches in dental education throughout the world, particularly in Egypt.
IFDEA was established to serve as the representative, independent worldwide voice for dental education by promoting advancement in dental education with the ultimate objective of improving the oral health of the public. Knowledge E works closely with over 200 clients world-wide from various types of organisations and government entities within the research and education sector to support their continued innovation and development.
