Overview

In order to achieve study results, various interactive teaching methods (analysis of cases, reflection, interactive lecture, observation, analysis of best practices, making and reasoning assumptions, role-playing games, etc.), independent work and related methods are intended in the descriptions of subjects.
Methods of problematic teaching in subject studies: analysis of cases (in speciality subjects – clinical cases) in small groups draw students into confrontation with practical problems that stimulate their independent learning, will realize interdisciplinary integration of knowledge and skills in solving real-life situations, and the lecturer’s function is changed into that of a consultant’s and helper’s.
Methods of modern assisting. Methods of modern assisting are applied to the Odontological Care study programme: “four-hand” work; “six-hand” work.
