Distance Learning and the Implementation of Problem-based learning (PBL) sessions Continues for Faculty of Pharmacy Students.
Third year students at the Faculty of Pharmacy organized on Thursday 26th of March 2020 a debriefing session for the third week of the twelfth educational block entitled “Gastrointestinal Disorders” with an attendance rate exceeding 93.5%. The sessions were conducted using the Zoom program where each team of 12 students and their tutor had a separate session from the rest of the teams. Students were able, over a period of two hours, to discuss the educational objectives of the weekly problem devoted to each academic year in the presence of their tutor. During the session, each student provided explanations of the objectives using different teaching aids prepared by the student before the session through the Zoom interface. The students will submit their weekly reports on the Moodle educational curriculum system by tomorrow evening to be corrected by faculty members who will provide the students with feedback using Moodle as well. Hence, the Faculty of Pharmacy continues to implement the full PBL sessions including the brainstorming sessions, discussion forums and debriefing sessions. This is done remotely and successfully thanks to the student’s cooperation and the efforts done by the entire team of the Faculty of Pharmacy. It is noteworthy that all grades pertaining the sessions, reports, assignments and weekly exams are uploaded to students on an up-to-date mater on the Moodle during the same week of the educational problem.
