My overarching goal as an academic pharmacist is to foster life-long learning so students can become self-sufficient and carry on improving clinically long after assigning the final grade. To help achieve my goal, I follow five guiding principles: (1) build learner confidence through a multi-modal approach; (2) promote a positive feedback culture; (3) connect smaller concepts with the bigger picture; (4) develop complementary learning activities; (5) provide effective feedback and accurate assessments.
