Student operator-assistant pairs: An update

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Objective To seek the opinions of undergraduates using the operator-assistant pairs system. Design A five-year evaluation of third-, fourth- and fifth-year students using a short, anonymous questionnaire Outcome measures This study set out to evaluate, but does not attempt to formally assess, the system. Result Most students enjoyed working in pairs, citing mutual support and collaborative learning as being the main advantages. However, 67% of responding third- year students, 79% of fourth-year students and 54% of fifth-year students indicated that they did not know why paired working had been introduced. Conclusions The majority of students found the pairs system advantageous over teacher-led situations. It encouraged greater efficiency, mutual support and help and collaborative learning. © British Dental Journal 2001;.
