The American Dental Education Association/AAL Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) is the premier teacher training program for full- and part-time dental and dental hygiene educators, and private practitioners embarking on a new career in academia.
The ITL can be taken as a standalone program that imparts the skills of a master educator and awards 50 CEUs. In addition to learning from award-winning ITL instructors, participants will network with dozens of colleagues from across the U.S. and Canada and from around the world.
The ITL program also serves as the pathway to a Master's degree in Dental Education. The nation's only Master's degree created for dental educators is awarded by the University of the Pacific. Alumni from any ITL program held since 2006 are eligible to enter the Master's degree program.
