We would like to welcome all those who have an interest in pharmacy undergraduate education to the fourth Pharmacy Education Conference on 26th June 2017 in Manchester. This conference seeks to bring together scientists, pharmacists and educators involved in pharmacy teaching. It is an opportunity to meet colleagues from other schools, to share good practice and learn about developments in pharmacy education.
This year we are delighted to announce that Professor Phil Race will provide the Conference Keynote address. The theme of his address is: 'Smarter Assessment: making it effective and manageable'. Phil publishes widely on learning, teaching feedback and assessment in higher education. His passion is about ‘making learning happen’, in an approachable way, without recourse to jargon, acronyms or elitism. He is the author of the ‘ripples on a pond’ way of thinking about seven factors underpinning successful learning. His work was recognised in 2007 by the Higher Education Academy awarding him a National Teaching Fellowship, and the status of ‘Principal Fellow’ in 2012. In 2010 he was awarded the honour of ‘European Educator of the Year’ by EuroChrie, at a ceremony in Amsterdam.
We are inviting colleagues to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words by 17th February. Further information about abstract submission will be available in January.
The conference fee is £50.00. A group discount of 25% is available when ten or more delegates are booked at the same time.
