Overseas Health Programs Let Some Students Do Too Much, Too Soon

Overseas Health Programs Let Some Students Do Too Much, Too Soon | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
The number of students going abroad to study health disciplines has tripled in the last 10 years, but guidelines for such programs have lagged behind.
Mary Starry's insight:

As more and more pharmacy students participate in overseas healthcare programs, making sure they are properly supervised and only participating in activities they would be legally able to do in the United States becomes important, not just for the student but for the college as well.  Other colleges of pharmacy may want to consider having students complete the  University of Minnesota's free online course that addresses these issues.

Mary Starry's insight:

Unfortunately, as the graphs show, the pharmacy education bubble will likely burst before the medical education bubble.  We need to become realistic about what our students will be able to earn in the future when determining pharmacy education costs.

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Best Practices for Implementing Team-Based Learning in Pharmacy Education

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Best Practices for Implementing Team-Based Learning in Pharmacy Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

An excellent article on the basic components of team based learning and then specifically the key requirements for each of those components to work the way they should.  Faculty who try to utilize only one or two components should not expect the robust learning experience for students that comes from full utilization of the process. Great insights for both individual faculty and for faculty teams.

What is a Flipped Classroom. Plus the educator guide to Flipped Classroom

What is a Flipped Classroom. Plus the educator guide to Flipped Classroom | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

ProProfs presents you this info-graphic that introduces the concept of flipped classrooms. It offers you information on how teachers and students respond to this new idea of learning.

Also, you may want to check The Educators’ Guide to Flipped Classroom, where you will find answer on how does a flipped classroom contribute to student learning, the top benefits and disadvantages of a flipped classroom, and last but not least, how to successfully Flip your classroom.

Finally, I highly encourage you to check:

Progressive Education: The Rising Power Of Student Voice

Read many current educational articles or twitter feeds, and it becomes pretty clear that progressive educationalists are gaining voice. Project based, constructivist, experiential, problem solving curriculum is lauded and promoted at every turn, and thankfully so. Learning becomes deeper and more meaningful when students participate in knowledge building. However, there are a few educationalists who are really pushing and disrupting the boundaries of progressive education. They are those who believe in student generated content.

A strategy for creating a School e-learning culture

Education is constantly changing the way students learn and how instructors teach. Technology is often the driving force behind many of the world’s changes and innovations. In education, creating an e-learning culture is more about developing and tweaking what already exists, sharing a common vision, and doing things a little differently. The purpose of this article is to identify and outline a strategy for creating an e-learning culture within a school system ready to step away from traditional teaching.

The Concept of Individualized Learning Plans in eLearning

Individualized Learning Plans constitute a user-specific learning program or strategy that resembles a mapped academic plan, reflecting each learner’s unique set of strengths, weaknesses, goals, needs, abilities, preferences, and interests. It constitutes an educational technique, undoubtedly easier to implement in the field of eLearning.

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Peer-Led Team Learning in an Online Course on Controversial Medication Issues and the US Healthcare System | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

U of Minnesota College of Pharmacy successfully offered a completely on-line course that incorporated on-line weekly discussions, reflections and a final project. Peer assessment was a major component of the assessment process, lightening the workload on faculty. Sounds very interesting and something other college faculty could realistically do.

Avoiding Information Overload: Remembering Course Goals

Avoiding Information Overload: Remembering Course Goals | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
In more than 20 years of teaching, I have learned that too much information frustrates rather than inspires students. Today, however, with a few clicks of the computer mouse, any teacher can retrieve an overabundance of information.
Mary Starry's insight:

This is a huge stumbling block for clinical faculty in pharmacy colleges.  They have so much expertise in their specialty area that they find it hard to keep the focus on the basic starting blocks for their topic.  Starting with realistic specific objectives and then structuring content to meet those objectives would be more effective. We want our students to know all the things we've learned from years of experience and end up leaving them in confusion instead.

Batson Blog - AAEEBL - The Association for Authentic, Experiential & Evidence-Based Learning

Mary Starry's insight:

I've looked at the DesireToLearn new learning portfolio, which would tie in with their learning management system.  Right now it doesn't provide the reporting and assessment aspects that provide our college the opportunity to utilize it as a "learning" or "assessment" portfolio.  However, they were very interested in obtaining comments and suggestions, so input on what pharmacy schools want for a portfolio should be brought to their attention now.

 

I definitely believe that learning management systems will contain within them the portfolios of the future.

How do we get more pharmacy faculty interested in learning and practicing new approaches to student learning?  A tenured faculty member walked into my office the other day and saw I was reading about the "Flipped Classroom". He asked me what was the difference between me and the rest of the faculty on our floor. I answered, "A PhD." and he replied, "No, the time to spend reading about education. The rest of us are working on our research in any spare moment we can find."   Is there a way to get all pharmacy faculty interested in learning approaches?

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.
