ADEA/Colgate/AAL Institute for Allied Health Educators


A series of online courses specificly designed for: 

  • Educators in all allied health professions, including physical therapy, radiology, occupational therapy, dental hygiene, and dental assisting.
  • New educators eager for the latest teaching methods and strategies to help your students succeed.
  • Private practitioners who are considering a new career path - or one who has already taken the leap, now preparing for a faculty position.
  • Mid-career professors who want to get retooled for a new generation of learners.

Participate in the ADEA/Colgate/AAL Institute for Allied Health Educators (ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE), an American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and AAL collaboration with exclusive sponsorship by the Colgate-Palmolive Company, to find out the latest best practices from an extensive network of professionals. Receive career advice and instruction covering a wide array of skills, from designing the most effective curricula and tests to honing leadership abilities. Make friendships that will last throughout your professional career and beyond.


Courses in the ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE series are delivered entirely online, to give you maximum flexibility, convenience, and opportunity to learn. Every live session is recorded and archived, so even if you miss a broadcast, you can view the slides and hear the instructor's commentary and Q&A with participants at your convenience.

Each course is independent of the others. You can take them in any order that suits your schedule.



If you're ready to acquire the skills of a master allied health teacher, ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE can give you the tools you need to succeed.
