Dental Education Learning and Teaching Academy (D.E.L.T.A.) Mini-Residency Program is designed to allow the participants to develop as successful educators and leaders in the profession. Fostering a successful academic career involves recognizing the emphasis placed on three critical activities: teaching and learning, educational research, and service.
Participants of this program will receive formal training in curriculum development, assessment and pedagogy, development and implementation of an educational research project, and overview of the administrative aspects of high-class academia.

“At times, when change is the only constant for dental education, an overview of key pillars and innovative educational technologies is vital for the sustainability of dental education. During this Mini-Residency, participants will be able to engage with educational experts in different synchronous and asynchronous formats—one-on-one, small group, lecture and individual studyand embark on an educational research journey from idea to publication. The guest speakers will share specifics for various settings (didactic, preclinic, clinic, and administrative) and disciplines (periodontology, prosthodontics, endodontics, pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and diagnostic sciences).”
A portion of the proceeds of the program will go to a fund to support the current and next generations of full-time junior faculty members (any stage and/or age) at TUSDM.

Here are some thoughts from our previous sponsors of this program:
'Dr. Dragan has long been an advocate for new technologies in dental education. It has been a pleasure working with her and the team to bring eye tracking to the DELTA module and we appreciate the opportunity to showcase our solutions to the larger Tufts research community!'
'We felt the event was well thought out and truly embraced a collaborative atmosphere even during these unique times. We're already looking forward to the next event.'
“Through working on my educational research projects, applying to residency and working on evaluating our dental school's curriculum regarding education on patients with special needs, I was able to make the most of the resources that our school had to offer and learn more about academic dentistry. Additionally, it fostered intimate and meaningful relationships as I got to know my colleagues and mentors through various experiences and learn about each other and our values and to support each other. I was able to use the tools that I learned to help other colleagues with their own projects and connect them with others that I had met along the way. It has fostered a great appreciation to mentorship both as a mentor and mentee.”
“When you're a student, you don't always know what goes on behind the scenes to deliver information to you, I've learned there is a science to formulating curriculum, to evaluating progress, to aligning your assessments with the course's objectives.”
“I'm writing this email to express my gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the DELTA mini-residency. I may not have adequately described how much this experience meant to me. I truly enjoyed working with my mentor, and I appreciate your fantastic feedback through Canvas. I wanted to thank everyone involved in selecting me to be one of the two lucky candidates to be awarded a scholarship. I did not think I would be chosen, and I can't thank enough everyone involved. I could not miss that opportunity, so I had to make it happen with my government ministry of higher education scholarship, and the difficulties with them, in the end, were more than worth it.”
“Thank you again for a most outstanding experience. I really benefitted tremendously from the DELTA program, and you are truly an inspiration.”
