Abstract:

The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy (COP) accepted the first students into its distance education Non-Traditional Doctor of Pharmacy (NTPD) program in 2001. Presently, 177 students have matriculated in the program and 52 have graduated. The importance of post-baccalaureate programs to advance knowledge and skills of practicing pharmacist-students and improve medication therapy management in the community has been recognized. Additionally, distance education initiatives may positively influence campus-based programs. At our institution, incorporation of educational technology into the pharmacy curricula has increased significantly since the NTPD program’s inception. Currently, most COP courses utilize a web-based course management system (CMS) to communicate with students, provide course materials to supplement or replace course packets, administer electronic quizzes or exams, and perform course/instructor evaluations. Classroom lectures are “captured” using software which allows content to be recorded and posted on the CMS for later use or review by students. Lecture capture has also been used to pre-record course content, allowing more interaction and discussion during classroom time and/or reducing scheduling difficulties. To accommodate real-time faculty-student and student-student interactions, NTPD courses utilize an online classroom to review problem-based learning exercises and case discussions. This virtual classroom now also supports continuing education, training programs, and outreach activities for the COP. Educational technology applications continue to expand; developing innovations include using the CMS to simulate electronic patient record-keeping, increase on-time access to drug information resources, and facilitate computer-mediated classroom discussions. Our experience demonstrates successful transfer of distance education methodologies into a variety of COP programs.
