New JDE Publication from AAL’s MA Graduate


Marc Kunin, D.D.S., M.A., is the Associate Director of Postgraduate Endodontics in Department of Dental Medicine at Lutheran Medical Center (Brooklyn, NY) and a graduate of theADEA/AAL/University of the Pacific’s Master’s Degree in Dental Education. Dr. Kunin recently published the results of his Master’s project in the June 2014 issue of theJournal of Dental Education (JED). In his article, “Comparing Face-to-Face, Synchronous, and Asynchronous Learning: Postgraduate Dental Resident Preferences”, Dr. Kunin evaluated the effectiveness of an asynchronous curriculum at Lutheran Medical Center. The study focused on whether the asynchronous format (online, recorded lectures) satisfied the educational needs of the residents compared to traditional lectures (face-to-face) and synchronous (online, live) formats. His results indicate that the asynchronous format can be an effective way to teach students in postgraduate programs. Dr. Kunin is now in the process of following up on these studies for future projects.
