Event description

Description

This is the second drug discovery course in the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) program, and covers key concepts in medicinal chemistry as well as the drug discovery of medicines primarily for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. More than 180 2nd year students are enrolled.

The course is structured as 2 hours of lectures and 2 hours of laboratory activities per week.

Jacqui uses a variety of techniques to engage her students in class and enhance their learning which has resulted in exceptional student evaluations. Strategies include:

  • Use of technology (particularly UQPoll and Visualizer)
  • Active learning strategies in large classes
  • Medicinal chemistry karaoke (Week 9)
  • YouTube for student engagement (Week 10)
  • Kinaesthetic learning strategies (Steroid lecture series – Weeks 11-13)
  • High impact lecture notes

Jacqui graduated from UQ with a First-Class Honours degree in Organic Chemistry and a University Medal in 1990. Since that time she has held a number of positions in industry, government and academia in the fields of formulation, toxicology, drug analysis and pharmacy practice. Jacqui joined the School of Pharmacy in 2001 as a Research Officer and moved into a full-time academic role in 2006. She has received six teaching awards at Faculty, UQ and national levels since 2011, and became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2017.
