Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme Seminar – Enhancing Pharmacy Education: Lessons Learned from Teaching Exchange at UCL

Enhancing Pharmacy Education: Lessons Learned from Teaching Exchange at UCL

Organised by the Teaching and Learning Innovation Centre (TALIC)

Details of the workshop:
Date : 24 April 2024 (Wednesday)
Time : 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Venue : Learning Lab, Room 321, 3/F Run Run Shaw Building, Main Campus, HKU
Speaker : Ms. Eliza Tam, Lecturer, Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacy, HKU
Facilitator : Prof. Luke Fryer, Assistant Director, TALIC, HKU

The Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPharm) program at HKU has recently undergone a significant curriculum revamp which impacted on the course organisation and assessment. To enhance this transformation, the Teaching Exchange Fellowship (TEF) offered a remarkable opportunity for knowledge exchange with University College London (UCL), which is currently ranked number 4 in QS for Pharmacology and Pharmacy. In this upcoming seminar, Ms. Eliza Tam will be sharing valuable insights gained from UCL, with a particular focus on authentic learning and assessment methods such as Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Furthermore, she will discuss the importance of developing a curriculum that aligns with the evolving professional needs of the field. By incorporating UCL’s expertise and understanding the challenges during their execution, the aim is to bring in the best practice to suit our local context. This seminar offers insight and practical knowledge on how lessons learned can be transformed into practice and the value of authentic learning and assessment for 21st century learners.
