Pharmacy school management for the shifts towards remote learning and virtual pharmacy education
Over the past 2 decades, virtual education evolved as a new pedagogy within education. Following the experience from the unexpected drastic shift to remote learning and virtual education as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators are faced with dilemmas of how to strike a balance between face-to-face modalities and the virtual platform. Remote learning and virtual education provide opportunities and leadership to develop hybrid models of teaching is now being considered. The webinar will seek to expose experiences and share examples of such opportunities and how to lead faculty towards incorporating the virtual education while ensuring quality education.
The participants who join the webinar will;
• Address assessment of quality of virtual education at the schools of pharmacy
• Reflect on the extent of remote learning after COVID-19 in pharmacy education
• Discuss approaches towards the development of hybrid education in pharmacy schools
