To enhance the professional development of the College of Pharmacy faculty.
- Train faculty in the process of peer evaluation;
- Establish a voluntary mentoring program;
- Introduce more active learning in our classrooms; and
- Develop a "self-evaluation of teaching" rubric for our faculty to use to reflect on their current and future teaching.
The UH College of Pharmacy launched its new curriculum in the fall of 2018! Faculty development will have an even more important role in helping faculty incorporate more active learning into their courses to provide more comprehensive, long-lasting learning.Summer Book Club
Over the summer 2018, the faculty, post-docs and graduate students were reading and discussing "Rigor mortis: how sloppy science creates worthless cures, crushes hope and wastes billions" by Richard Harris, (Basic Books Publishers, 2017).
