A unique group of collaborators (faculty member, an instructional designer, and three PharmD students currently enrolled in the teaching concentration) designed an elective to enhance the concentration. Through an independent study, we shared sources to learn the instructional design process including the modified ADDIE model, curricular alignment, curriculum mapping to assess curricular needs, designing and evaluating learning experiences, and development of surveys for educational evaluation. They created a survey delivered online via survey software to gather data on prevalence and perceptions of academic concentration within a PharmD program. The team created a syllabus with textbook, objectives, learning outcomes, major assignments, and assessments. The syllabus and new course proposal passed the college Curriculum Committee and preliminary steps of the university new course proposal system. The course will be an elective for PharmD students in the teaching concentration who want a more thorough preparation for the life of College of Pharmacy faculty.
