Teach the Teachers Educational Program (TTEW)

TTEW Workshop

The TTEW project is a "teach the teachers" educational program.

The TTEW has been designed for less wealthy nations as judged by World Bank data and/or the United Nations Human Index. TTEW is available to IAPD member nations requiring assistance to advance paediatric dentistry teaching in their countries.

A major strategy of TTEW is to work with the host country to identify their needs and tailor a program specifically for them.

  • A host nation contacts the Secretary General to express interest in participating in TTEW.
  • A preliminary visit occurs to discuss current teaching needs, assess the facilities, establish goals and determine the methods of evaluation. A workshop plan is designed.
  • IAPD will cover airfare and hotel expense for speakers.

Since its introduction, DENFAC, which is now called TTEW has made good progress. Workshops have been held in Romania, Turkey, Poland, China, Senegal,Peru and Kenya.

Those interested in participating in TTEW, to receive the project in your nation, to participate as workshop speakers-leaders, or to gain information about being a corporate sponsor should write or e-mail to the IAPD at iapd@iapdworld.org.
