Pedagogical Resource Design for Public Health Case-Based Content in the Pharmacy

April 14, 2020
2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. ET

Members of the Public Health SIG will discuss the process of developing, and the benefits associated with, a case-based open educational resource (OER) to create an interactive learning environment for pharmacy students. In particular, they will highlight a recent OER published within the SIG, Public Health in Pharmacy Practice: A Casebook. This webinar is of particular benefit to pharmacy faculty members involved in their school’s public health curriculum, but also will be valuable to non-public health-oriented attendees who will learn about a process for developing OERs to fill curricular gaps and enhance learning in other subject areas.


  1. Identify the strengths and limitations of open educational resources (OERs) 
  2. Describe the role and delivery of public health education in the PharmD curriculum 
  3. Describe the value of using a case-based approach to teach public health
  4. Discuss the process of creating a public health OER for pharmacy students 
  5. Utilize and incorporate an OER on public health into didactic content
