It's a fact that the longer a dentist or a student processes a certain subject, the better they learn it. Usually the problem that I've confronted in a lecture is the amount of information. It is just too much to be remembered after such a short moment.
I've been lecturing for an implant company and in the University of Helsinki for several years. My solution for managing this problem is the use of videos:
- I share the videos to be included in my lecture to the participants one week beforehand by using Futudent cloud server
- The participants have the possibility to view these videos in advance, so the learning starts already before the lecture.
- It's nice to start the lecture by talking about the procedures (videos) that I've shared. Everybody is already interested and have questions. The learning process continues.
- I also routinely share few videos to the participants one week after the lecture.
This way I manage to prolongue the time when the participants process the subject - from one lecturing day up to two weeks or even longer.
According to the feedback this is a productive way to raise my teaching as well as learning results to a higher level.
