Using a Novel Student-centered Teaching Method to Improve Pharmacy Student Learning.

Am J Pharm Educ; 83(2): 6505, 2019 Mar.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30962633

OBJECTIVE:

To improve students' learning and develop their learning skills in pharmacy education.

METHODS:

A novel teaching method composed of Self-study, Test, Question and Discussion (STQD) sessions uses self-, peer-, co-learning, active learning, inductive teaching, and formative assessment to promote student-centered teaching in pharmacy education. STQD has been implemented within courses focusing on instrumental analysis and analytical chemistry. In a four-year study, qualitative and quantitative approaches were used to evaluate the effectiveness of STQD in facilitating students' learning.

RESULTS:

Students positively evaluated their experience in STQD class with an overall mean and standard deviation of 4.35 (0.64) in a 5-point Likert scale, where a score of 1 is "strongly disagree" and a score of 5 is "strongly agree." The final examination results showed students' average score in an STQD class was higher than students' average score in a traditional class. Most students indicated that the STQD improved their learning ability, communication ability and facilitated their learning.

CONCLUSION:

The use of STQD in an integrated basic science curriculum has the potential to develop students' learning skills and improve their learning in pharmacy education.
