Abstract (Summary)

The exponential growth of online and hybrid education is most pressing and rapidly changing, increasing the need for faculty development programs for the traditional and online educator (Herman, 2012; Quinn & Kennedy-Clark, 2015). The students of today are referred to as the digital native student (DNS; Akcayir, Dundar, & Akcayir, 2016). Teaching faculty at dental schools are from the baby boomer and traditionalists’ generation (ADEA Snapshot, 2017). Additionally, there are many institutions where the teaching faculty are trained in a specific trade or skill and do not understand the need for a teaching pedagogy related to the DNS needs (Behar-Horenstein, Garvan, Catalanotto, Yu, & Xiaoying, 2016).
