Lecturer, Pharmacy Education and Innovation, College of Pharmacy

Nick Denton, Ph.D., introduced a strategy of “flipping” lab teams to encourage engagement in PHR4600 Pharmaceutical Sciences Laboratory. He also provided a variety of tools to orient students to the lab activities and presents these strategies in the accompanying featured video. 

Increasing student demand for PHR2367, a course on drug use in the U.S., prompted him to organize a team to focus on best supporting undergraduate student success by focusing on inclusive practices. This effort comprised Denton’s IR project, which is outlined below.
