The Benefits of Flexible Learning (for Dental Professionals)

November 15, 2023 by AACD Executive Office

Flexible learning is a method of learning where students are given freedom in how, what, when, and where they learn. Keeping that in mind, AACD has developed a hybrid format study club that offers a unique coaching experience unlike any other. Here are some benefits of flexible learning for dentists and lab techs who enroll in the Esthetic Skills Studio Hybrid Study Club:

  1. Flexibility: You have a demanding schedule, making it challenging to attend traditional in-person sessions consistently. Hybrid flexible learning allows participants to access materials and lectures online, providing flexibility to learn at your own pace and review content when it's convenient for you.

  2. Accessibility: Flexible learning breaks down geographical barriers. Dentists from different locations can participate in the study club without the need for extensive travel. This accessibility promotes diversity in perspectives and experiences within the group.

  3. Customization: Flexible hybrid learning allows for a personalized learning experience. You can choose the mode of learning that suits your individual preferences, whether it's through online modules, live webinars, or webinar recordings. This customization enhances engagement and caters to diverse learning styles.

  4. Technology Integration: Dentistry is a field that is continually evolving with advancements in technology. Flexible learning integrates digital tools and resources, allowing you to stay updated on the latest techniques, research, and technologies relevant to your practice.

  5. Collaboration and Networking: The flexible model facilitates collaboration and networking opportunities. While the in-person session at AACD 2024 National Harbor provides valuable face-to-face interactions, online forums and discussion boards enable ongoing communication and collaboration between dentists and your AACD Accredited Coach, fostering a sense of community and shared learning.

  6. Time and Cost Efficiency: Flexible learning can be more time and cost-effective. You can save time by avoiding long commutes to in-person sessions and have the flexibility to balance your professional and educational commitments more efficiently. Additionally, it may reduce overall program costs compared to traditional study club formats.

  7. Adaptability: Flexible learning is adaptable to various learning styles and preferences. You can utilize online resources for theoretical aspects and communicate with your peers during the live online sessions. This adaptability ensures a well-rounded educational experience.

  8. Continuous Learning: The flexible model supports continuous learning by providing ongoing access to resources and updates. You can stay connected with the study club community and your AACD Accredited Coach even between in-person sessions, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and knowledge sharing.

In summary, a flexible study club for dentists and lab techs offers a balanced approach to learning, combining the strengths of traditional learning with the convenience and accessibility of online resources. This approach is well-suited to the dynamic nature of the dental profession, ensuring that dentists and lab techs can enhance their skills and stay abreast of the latest developments in the field.
