Implementation of Inverted Learning Strategy in Applied Pharmacokinetics

by Dr. Ifeanyi Onor

The goal of this project is to implement flipped classroom in the cardiovascular pharmacokinetics content of the Applied Pharmacokinetics course. The primary objective of this study is to utilize flipped classroom teaching approach to improve student engagement and knowledge retention, and to strengthen students' ability to apply gained knowledge in clinical practice.

By participating in the Faculty Communities of Teaching Scholars (FaCTS) "Inverted Teaching and Learning" initiative, I aim to gain the knowledge and insight on best practices in inverted teaching and learning in order to implement inverted learning in the Applied Pharmacokinetics course offered in the College of Pharmacy. During the fall 2015 semester, I introduced "flipped classroom" teaching in the cardiovascular pharmacokinetics content in Applied Pharmacokinetics. I had students complete graded, in- and out- of classroom worksheet activities and facilitated student-led discussions on cardiovascular pharmacokinetics. I intend to refine and bolster flipped classroom teaching method in the upcoming semester and may introduce this teaching and learning method in other courses that I teach.
