Transformational learning is construed as deep constructive meaningful learning leading to critical ways in which learners consciously make meaning of their lives in order to produce a fundamental change in our world view and therefore true emancipation. The cardinal goal of transformational learning  is to make our own interpretations, in short to achieve ‘Autonomous thinking’.Transformative teaching therefore is to facilitate the student to think on their own. To make the students capable of functioning efficiently in this competitive world.

Two videos were depicted, One showing Dr.Valli Malar in her practice in Madurai and how she applies the training imparted in Oral Pathology department in her day to day clinical practice and how it helps her in her treatment algorithm.

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics organised a guest lecture on “All About All Ceramics”on 2.3.19 presented by Dr. G. Lambodharan, Reader, Department of Prosthodontics, Meenakshi Ammal Dental College and Hospital, Chennai. Successful application of all-ceramic materials depends on the clinicians ability to select both the appropriate material and cementation protocol that satisfy the patient’s needs and expectations. The selection of a particular ceramic system should be based on physical properties such as strength, fracture resistance, wear resistance, long-term outcomes as well as esthetic considerations. The lecture focused on the fact that the dentist must understand these materials and systems so he or she can educate patients and present appropriate treatment options.

Transformation Learning- Oral Medicine & Radiology

DSC09175.JPG
DSC09173.JPG

During the 6th Edition of Edify, we the department of Oral Medicine and Radiology shared our initiative and approach in Transformative Learning. We identified a student who lacked in self confidence, motivation, memory power and hence we chose him to bring about his journey of transformation. The initial step which we took forward was a Counselling session with our senior faculty members to identify his strength and weakness. We developed new ideas and approaches to critically engage him in activity based learning using scrabble words, picture puzzles and pnemonics that increased his focus, attention and memory retention. Counselling and activities in turn triggered him to frame his own pnemonics to remember and recollect,  overcoming his lack of memory power.He was also self motivated and interested to share his ideas with his fellow mates. We also encouraged him to do short term research projects. Wherein , he himself came up with a research topic.  He presented 2 posters in Star summit and also won best poster award in his session.  As a department we are very happy to see his transformation from a boy who lacked self confidence, into a person who could defend himself for his own research to  the judges and also received their appreciation.

Thus our journey continues with the motto……


“Learning That Changes Lives”

Transformation Learning- Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics

DSC09177.JPG

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics had its 6th Edify on 14th February 2019. The theme was reforming students skills towards academics and clinical aptitude. Procrastination - to keep delaying something or not doing something that must be done, often because it’s unpleasant or boring. Students know that they should do proper tray set up and to keep the work place clean for any type of treatment, but they were not following for all the patients because of time constrains. So to manage Procrastination and time inconsistency we followed a method called “2 Mins Rule”. 2 Mins Rule - in that we teach the students to organize the work place with all instruments and equipments in 2 Mins. The end result is better time management, ease of work and attending to patients on time and completing the procedure. This method had brought a change in an undergraduate student. 

Transformative learning is about how a change is brought in a student both academically and as a whole person. A post graduate student had difficulty in managing his patients on time. Counseling was given to him and trained him extensively in pre-clinical work. These changes his whole mind set and helped him manage his cases well and time management was exemplary. These motivations also lead the way for him to get the best post graduate Endodontics award in 2018.  The whole thing was done as a video and was showcase for the Edify meet.
