To design and implement curricular modifications to a nonprescription therapeutics course to better meet course objectives.
Improvements included the addition of journaling, mastery grading, case studies, verbal examinations, educational mentors, and encouraging classroom participation.
Student course evaluations and grades were used to assess the impact of the pedagogical modifications. Course grades indicated that students succeeded in learning at the set mastery level of 80%. Course evaluations indicated students responded positively to the course modifications.
Ongoing curricular modifications ultimately resulted in a course that met established course objectives.
