General Information

Overview

This unit builds on your knowledge of anatomy from ORAL11004 Oral Anatomy 1 and supports your study of oral pathology in ORAL11003 Introduction to Oral Disease. In the first half of this unit you will continue the study of anatomy and physiology of the head, neck and oral cavity with an emphasis of the clinical applications of this knowledge. In the second half of this unit you will study embryology and microscopic anatomy of structures within the oral cavity. With this unit you will develop the foundation knowledge required to administer local anaesthesia and conduct an extra-oral and intra-oral examination in oral health therapy practice.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from In-class and student evaluations

Feedback

Students found the first In-class test challenging and asked for more practice and feedback on their answers before they attempted the assessment.

Recommendation

It is recommended that structured guidance be given on the written test, such that the first in-class assessment be conducted at midterm and the second test be conducted at the end of term. It is also recommended that students complete and receive feedback on a short practice test before the first in-class assessment.

Feedback from In-class and student evaluations

Feedback

Students enjoyed the anatomy sessions where they could work in groups and support each other's learning. Students found drawing on the white board in the anatomy tutoral sessions especially useful to better understand concepts and relationships to anatomical landmarks with the supervisor.

Recommendation

It is recommended that group work in the anatomy tutorial sessions continue, and students be encouraged to support each other’s learning during activities that includes drawing as a learning tool in oral anatomy.

Feedback from In-class and student evaluations

Feedback

Students appreciated the weekly study guides as the guides outlined what was expected by listing the weekly learning objectives, what was important in the textbook reading for that week, extra reading when the topic was not covered by the textbook and by including an example of written exam style question.

Recommendation

It is recommended that study guides are prepared for each weekly topic and that these are displayed under the Learning Material label as a book resource.
