Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Using problem-based learning for a Pharmaceutical Chemistry practical course: The power of the virtual client

Problem-based learning (PBL) was initially developed in medical schools as a format for self-directed learning and to acquire problem-solving skills. The aim of this paper is to report on the design of a novel pharmaceutical chemistry-based practical class that uses PBL creatively based on the “the power of the virtual client”. The objectives of the session are to: introduce a new and creative approach to PBL used in a medicinal chemistry practical class for pharmacy students; develop a design that addresses typical issues found in PBL approaches such as high staffing needs and the time-consuming aspect of feedback; and learn tips and tricks on how to implement this pedagogic approach into large classes.
