Event Description


This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from June 3–6, 2024.

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences has developed a tool to assist learning activity designers who seek guidance on ensuring activities are designed with an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) perspective in mind. The initial application was to an asynchronous online module for entry-to-practice pharmacy students.

The tool is not meant to be an exhaustive repository of items to “check off the list”, but rather a suite of important considerations to keep in mind when creating scenarios, cases, and/or examples to elucidate your lecture topics.

As this will be an interactive session, learners are asked to bring learning activity materials with them to the session, to share with their peers and use to draw examples from.

In this workshop, learners will:

  • Apply the EDI tool to their learning activity
  • Identify potential areas to alter based on EDI considerations
  • Brainstorm ways to improve the EDI tool based on different disciplines of study
