Interactive Video Assignment
Dental Hygiene/ New York City College of Technology
Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity
This collaborative assignment from DEN 1200 will continue on- A case study will be assigned to you by Professor Marsh, please use this case study for Periodontics 1217, to create a 2–3-minute interactive video explaining to your patient their periodontal health status, periodontal stages and grades or if the patient has gingivitis, how it can progress into periodontal disease, explain treatment options and substantial response by explaining, why their chosen recommendation benefits the patient and what other recommendations might you consider to a fellow classmate.
Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?
Integrative learning with the application of theory to practical problems, integrating ideas or concepts, and understanding and connecting ideas from other courses. Connections to different disciplines, oral and written communication, and connections to experience.
Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?
I plan to discuss it at the beginning of the semester as they will start their written assignment for the other course. I will devote any time necessary to explain instructions and go over anything that is unclear. The time out of the classroom by practicing and having an outline set should be roughly three to four hours.
Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?
This will be a collaborative assignment from DEN 1200- A case study will be assigned to you by Professor Marsh; please use this case study for Periodontics 1217, creating an Interactive Video Assignment. This will be a continuation of your paper. Please carefully use the Rubric below to guide your presentation. You will need to record a video from 2-3 minutes discussing and answering the questions below. You may record yourself using any mobile device or application, but please ensure the link you submit downloads and opens without issues. For example, you may upload a YouTube video link you created, an MP4 file of your video, or a video application format like Vimeo. The recording assignment file should include last name, first name, and case value (e.g., Smith, Stage I, grade B), and be submitted on OpenLab under Student Video Posts.
Please answer these questions:
1. Depending on your patient’s case, what would you say about their periodontal health status to the patient?
2. Explain to the patient the periodontal stages and grades or if the patient has gingivitis, how it can progress into periodontal disease. (Please use visual aids as we would with a patient)
3. Explain treatment options and plan of action to slow down or stop the progression of their disease (ex: root planning and scaling, any intervention methods, and homecare) to the patient.
4. Provide goal-targeted feedback in a supportive manner offering a substantial response by explaining why their chosen recommendation benefits the patient and what other recommendations you might consider. (Give goal-targeted feedback in a supportive manner) Respond to someone with a different patient case than yours, which can be a different section than ours.
It is a low stakes assigment.
Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?
Oral communication and integrative ACCU rubric assessing the organization (content is a structured presentation), language (persuasive and professional manner), delivery (effective/2-3 minutes) connection to experience (profound understanding of the field), and their reply (substantial reply to a fellow classmate). It's worth 5% of their grade.
Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?
This activity worked well with my students. They learned a lot from each other. I would repeat this assignment. It was very valuable for the students to learn and understand the concepts and periodontics. They could incorporate their new skills into the other classes, the 1200 seminar and the 1200 clinic. The feedback from the students is that they made their interactive video multiple times learning where their communication needed to be stronger with their patients. The only thing I would change is to clarify the assignment instructions. Some details were not missed. The students were creative with this assignment and used the platform to its fullest ability pretending to have a live patient and split screen. I was very impressed with how the project turned out.
