School of Dental Medicine to Increase Care for Children with Special Needs2015-01-27 17:08:52 SIUE.edu
Through a partnership with the Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation (SIHF) and Touchette Regional Hospital, SIU SDM will have access to the hospital in Centreville to provide dental services to children with special needs who require sedation for completion of care. Additionally, SIU SDM will begin offering a broader range of dental treatment for special needs children at the School?s patient clinics.
In order to develop the growth of this program, the SIU SDM recently hired Dr. Andrea Bell to serve as a dental anesthesiologist. Bell received her DMD degree from the SIU SDM in 2007. Prior to returning to her alma mater, Bell completed a post-doctoral general practice – medical track residency, as well as a dental anesthesiology residency, at Stony Brook Medicine in Stony Brook, N.Y.
?It is extremely exciting to fully realize this development at the School of Dental Medicine,? explained Dr. Bruce Rotter, SIU SDM dean. ?Through this partnership with SIHF and Touchette, as well as the recent hiring of Dr. Bell, the School of Dental Medicine will be able to expand services to special needs children with a higher level of complexity than we can currently serve. This is a positive development for both the School and the community.?
Early in January 2015, Bell was granted the necessary medical staff privileges at Touchette Regional Hospital and will soon begin serving patients at the hospital. The partnership with the hospital will allow the School to expand their services to provide treatment for fully sedated special needs children. SIU SDM will have access to a second operating room in the hospital, which will be available weekly for dental treatment to special needs children.
As this partnership develops, SIU SDM students and SIHF staff will coordinate to develop an educational program, which will be delivered to the parents of special needs children. The program will describe the importance of regular tooth brushing and positive oral habits to be displayed by children.
The SIU School of Dental Medicine students manage approximately 35,000 patient visits each year at its patient clinics in Alton and East St. Louis. In addition, students offer oral health treatment, screenings and education to more than 10,000 people annually through a wide variety of off-campus community outreach events. These opportunities provide students the training they need to graduate and become highly skilled dentists. The School of Dental Medicine is a vital oral health care provider for residents of southern and central Illinois, and the St. Louis metropolitan region.

SIUE Tabs Mario Sanchez as Men?s Soccer Head Coach2015-01-27 10:27:31 SIUE.edu
SIUE Director of Athletics Dr. Brad Hewitt has announced Mario Sanchez as the new Cougars men?s soccer head coach. Sanchez becomes the seventh head coach in program history.
?We were fortunate in our candidate pool,? Hewitt said. ?We had applicants from every major soccer conference in the country. Ultimately, we felt Mario was the best fit for the program.?
Sanchez comes to SIUE after most recently serving as the associate head coach at the University of Louisville.
?My family and I would like to thank Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe and Dr. Brad Hewitt for allowing me the opportunity to lead the SIUE men?s soccer program,? Sanchez said. ?I am looking forward to continuing the success of the men?s soccer program built through the previous head coaches and all of the alumni who have helped shape the culture of success for the program.?
Sanchez takes over an SIUE program that is coming off its most successful season since returning to NCAA Division I play. The Cougars won their first Missouri Valley Conference title in 2014 and advanced to the NCAA tournament where they defeated Northwestern in the first round, before falling on the road at No. 18 California, 1-0.
Sanchez succeeds co-Head Coaches David Korn and Brian Jones. Korn remains on staff as the program’s associate head coach. Jones departed SIUE for a position with Saint Louis FC, a United Soccer League (USL) Professional side.
Sanchez served on Louisville?s staff for Head Coach Ken Lolla, including the past three seasons as the associate head coach. Prior to joining the staff at Louisville, Sanchez spent four seasons as the head coach at UNLV. Sanchez previously worked under Lolla for three seasons at the University of Akron.
The 1999 graduate of Fresno State began his coaching career at his alma mater. Sanchez was an assistant coach at Fresno State from 1999 to 2003 before the school eliminated its men?s soccer program.
With Sanchez on staff, Louisville made five consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, advancing to at least the second round in each appearance. In 2010, the Cardinals made their only College Cup Final appearance during Sanchez’s first season on the bench, where the team, ironically, bowed out to Akron 1-0.

Virtual Classroom Prepares SIUE Students for Real-Life Instruction2015-01-27 08:25:17 SIUE.edu
At first glance, it looks like a video game: five avatars sitting at desks, carrying on conversations and demonstrating a multitude of behaviors. But these animations are not as robotic as one may expect. Each avatar is precisely programmed to act and react as students would in a live classroom setting.
At the controls of this virtual classroom are Southern Illinois University Edwardsville students pursuing a degree in education. The technology is called TeachLivE? and employs the idea of virtual simulation. View video here.
?We?re approximating what it?s going to be like in a classroom setting,? said Susanne James, assistant professor of special education and communication disorders at SIUE. ?We allow our pre-service and in-service teachers to try new teaching strategies in a way that?s less threatening and offers immediate feedback.?
TeachLivE? was started at the University of Central Florida, in collaboration with Lockheed Martin. SIUE is the first and only university in Illinois using this advanced technology.
?We can talk until we?re blue in the face sometimes about what is good, effective instructional practice, and hope students can employ those techniques in the real classroom,? James explained. ?But with TeachLivE?, they have the opportunity to practice it, receive immediate coaching and feedback and then try it again.
?By employing TeachLivE? in the SIUE School of Education, we are meeting the demands of the federal government to improve how we prepare teachers for the realities of the classroom.?
?This program provides another opportunity for SIUE students to practice what they have learned in the classroom,? added Curt Lox, dean of the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior. ?I envision this technology playing a major role in our teacher preparation programs in the near future.?
At SIUE, the program is funded primarily through grants, which cover the cost of the interaction time. This is an hourly cost covering the time of an individual at the University Central Florida who is trained in adolescent behavior. The individual specifically programs the avatars for each session.
According to James, the hardware costs are minimal, since the program runs with the use of an Xbox Kinect, a desktop computer, a web camera and Skype.
?You walk in and you meet five students: CJ, Sean, Ed, Maria and Kevin,? James described. ?This is an academically diverse, culturally diverse classroom with five individuals who are pretty typical of what you would see in a middle school or high school setting, as far as their behaviors.?
Markers are placed on the floor to mirror the arrangement of the avatars on the screen. The student teacher then interacts with the avatar students by walking toward specific markers. The virtual classroom moves with the motions of the teacher, and students respond real-time to the teacher?s specific instructions and interaction.
?As an instructor, I can change the level of behavior of each student, from being mildly distracted to pretty aggressive,? James said.
?I can also determine different pedagogical approaches that I want the teacher to employ. So if it?s student talk time or student feedback, the avatars will react to whatever it is that the pre-service teacher is saying and doing within the simulation environment.?
The ability to tailor each interaction allows every student to have a personalized experience in the virtual classroom. Sessions can be paused by an instructor at any time. This gives faculty the ability to provide instant feedback so students can adjust to demonstrate best practice techniques.
?What we?ve found, and what the research has found, is that after just a couple minutes, students really start acting like they?re in a real classroom, with real kids, because the students are responding to them,? said Wendy Fuchs, associate professor and special education program director.
?It really increases their effectiveness and their comfort in the classroom, and their comfort with the content,? Fuchs added.
Undergraduate Brittany Thompson said the TeachLivE? virtual classroom gave her a unique opportunity to perfect her teaching techniques.
?I was able to experiment and determine, what?s working? What?s not working?? Thompson explained. ?The repetition was really beneficial for me.?
Thompson?s virtual experience helped her transition more smoothly into a real classroom placement.
?All of the students have their own personalities,? Thompson said. ?They?re applicable to real life. In every placement I?ve been, I think I could pick out a CJ. I could pick out a Sean.?
In spring 2015, TeachLivE? will be used in the master?s program at SIUE.
?I received a dean?s grant that will pay for interaction time where we will have an avatar student approximate different assessment measures,? James said. ?I will get to dictate what miscues and errors students should make in the simulation lab. Then graduate students will be able to record that assessment and use it as they prepare their assessment record.?
TeachLivE??s virtual offerings include an adult avatar that can approximate a parent-teacher conference or a teaching position interview. An avatar trained in the behaviors of autism is also available. TeachLivE? plans to expand its technology to include preschool and elementary settings, as well as an English language learner setting.
