In the 21st century, pharmacy education in Australia and globally has experienced continuing change to learning and teaching practices due to government policies and bodies such as TEQSA (https://www.teqsa.gov.au/), generational change due to the entry of “digital natives”, and uncertainty in the times of the COVID-19 pandemic. These challenges and opportunities have been and continue to be met by educators with innovation, collaboration, research, and new modes and modalities of teaching such as online video conferencing, simulation, virtual reality, flipped classes, and interprofessional assessment.
You are invited to share your learning and teaching innovations, techniques, technology, assessment, and challenges with colleagues in this special edition of Pharmacy. The focus may include the development of new styles of assessment and examination of pharmacy students, new formats of workplace learning, development of core communication skills such as patient education and counselling, provision of new services, through to development of attributes such as empathy and social accountability.
We hope this Special Edition will encourage Australian and non-Australian Pharmacy Educators in hectic and uncertain times to curate and share their solutions to educational challenges, to adopt/adapt new practices, and to collaborate to address future opportunities.
Dr. Maree Donna Simpson
