How to design integrated courses
6 November 2019
  • Assoc. Prof. Andries S. Koster

    Associate Professor of Pharmacology, Dept. Pharmaceutical Sciences, Utrecht University, the Netherlands.

Workshop Overview:
Educational integration of content from different disciplines (e.g. medicinal chemistry,
biopharmacy, pharmacology, therapeutics) and inclusion of practical skills training in one-and- the-same course can be important to prepare students for their professional life. Building an integrated course, however, is considered a challenging task by most teachers and curriculum developers. In this workshop, Dr. Koster will illustrate the process of designing an integrated course. The workshop requires some active engagement of the participants.


**The workshop is open to 35 participants (maximum) from all disciplinary backgrounds.
**This workshop is equivalent to 2 CME credit hours.
