The HSC College of Pharmacy is actively engaged in research to understand and improve optimal learning outcomes for students. Current research projects comprise a wide range of teaching and learning outcomes including enhancing student learning through creative teaching approaches, developing self-confidence and self-appraisal, examining metacognition and self-authorship among pharmacy students, and promoting student well-being and stress reduction.
Several creative teaching methods are being investigated including use of podcasts to prepare students for clinical rotations, using patients as teachers to promote interprofessional cultural responsiveness, incorporating interactive escape room activities into student learning, and incorporating clinical debates into pharmacy education.
