During this time last year our community transitioned officially all the didactic in-person activities to a virtual environment. The members of TUSDM’s Teaching and Learning in an Environment of New Technology (T.A.L.E.N.T.) committee wanted to take a moment and remind the faculty and staff of the TUSDM commitment to support professional development initiatives and educational research projects.
TUSDM Teaching, Research & Education Enhancement (T.R.E.E.) fund grants are available to support professional development and educational research projects. The T.A.L.E.N.T. committee is ready to accept proposals with an expedited review process. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and funds are limited. Please submit your proposal as soon as possible and reach out if you have questions. In the past year, this fund supported 5 colleagues and they kindly reported on the impact this support had on their individual development, but also the TUSDM community.
More information on the applications is in the links below:
In January 2020, the Journal of Dental Education launched a new scholarship series "Advancing Through Innovation". We encouraged TUSDM faculty and staff to contribute to this series if possible. See enclosed some of the highlights of multiple teams at TUSDM, including faculty and staff that published for their first time! We will continue to update a space on the CANVAS Faculty Education page with publications from this series. If your manuscript has not been added and you would like to share it, please let us know.
