The annual Educator Workshop, developed by the AAE Educational Affairs Committee and funded by the Foundation for Endodontics is held annually with the audience rotating between predoc directors, program directors and department chairs. The event allows educators to engage specifically with their peers to share and learn how to advance endodontic education. The 2017 Educator Workshop, held August 11-12, in Chicago was a big success. Learn more about this event on the meeting's website.
The 2018 Educator Workshop will host predoctoral directors in summer 2018. Attendees are guests of the AAE and will receive registration information prior to the event.
The AAE encourages all educator members to participate in the AAE awards process. Visit the AAE Awards and Recognition area to be inspired by past winners, celebrate the accomplishments of your colleagues by submitting a nomination and make a career plan to pursue recognition. There are three educator specific awards: Edward M. Osetek Educator Award, I.B. Bender Lifetime Educator Award and the Part-Time Educator Award.
Supporting endodontic education and the individuals who strengthen it is one of the Foundation for Endodontics’ most important roles. Please make sure you are taking advantage of what the Foundation has to offer you. Review all opportunities on the Foundation’s Educator Grants page.
NOTE: The Foundation’s Board recently reviewed its funding initiatives to make sure each opportunity was in line with the Foundation’s mission. Beginning in January 2018, some alterations will affect the structure, availability and processing of some of the grants that are currently offered. The changes will not only allow the Foundation to offer funding to more individuals, the new structure will allow for greater flexibility in their use by educators like you. Watch for information regarding the revised grant opportunities and requirements, set to be released in January.
