Educators of pharmacy students need to engage with many challenges, including preparing health graduates for practice of a future that is unpredictable, but likely to be constantly changing. Educators focus may include the development of fundamentals, such as medication management knowledge within a framework of communication skills, problem solving, life-long learning and other skills. However, there are multiple challenges, such as the advent of new technologies, universities needing to operate in a global environment, increasing costs and shrinking university budgets, demands for evidence of “accountability” regarding student outcomes and increasing student demands.
We invite you to share your approaches and successes in developing learning opportunities and assessments in pharmacy student education in the new 21st century learning environment. We hope this Special Issue will inspire other educators to share their own practices, adopt new approaches and innovate to make improvements.
