Classroom Activities:

  1. Small Group Activity and Chart Presentations:
  2. Subject: a. Biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics,

Name of the faculty: C. Pavani

Topic: Classify the routes of drug administration along with mechanism and factors influencing absorption.

Activity description:

  • In this activity, students are assigned specific roles within their groups: one as writer, another as reader, and third as the monitor, to ensure active participation.
  • Each group is provided with a topic related to mechanisms of drug absorption & given 30 min to construct a model chart that represent their understanding.
  • Followed by chart creation, each group presents their findings within 3 min presentation. Subsequently, students are allotted 15 min to individually create a mind map based on the presented topics.
  • Outcome:
