A webinar organised by:
17 May 2022

With the COVID-19 pandemic, effective use of educational technologies has become essential. Many different aspects of technology have been introduced or further expanded, including remote experiential learning or simulations for virtual patient care. At the same time, artificial intelligence enabled faculties to accelerate and advance research and clinical care in the pharmaceutical sciences and clinical pharmacy practice.

Introduction and implementation of any technology-enabled education and training includes many success factors such as technology literacy amongst educators and students. To enhance technology-enabled pharmaceutical education, this digital event will outline good practices and engage participants in identifying a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) of technology and AI use in education.

At the end of this session, participants will: 
1.Learn about current and future good practices about the educational technologies used in higher/pharmaceutical education
2.Contribute to the development of a SWOT in using Technology & AI in pharmaceutical education
3.Identify ways to enhance quality of education and academic capacity by utilizing technology and AI in pharmaceutical education
