Student Experiences at the Faculty of Dentistry

A circular graphic that highlights which domains of innovation are in the project

The Innovation Hub has partnered with the Faculty of Dentistry to consult on the student experience at the Faculty. The Innovation Hub will facilitate feedback sessions with students, staff, and faculty to gain deeper and more nuanced understanding of the current student experience and how it can be strengthened. Based on this consultation, the Innovation Hub will generate a vision to guide activities, recommendations and design principles related to the student experience at the Faculty.
