Abstract

Education is a process, the main objective of which is to bring certain positive behavioural changes in the learner. There are three important ingredients for education- objectives, teaching- learning activities and evaluation. Classroom lecture, demonstration, practical class and symposium are examples of teacher centred teaching- learning methods. Free group discussion, project work and self-study are learner controlled teaching- learning methods. Group discussion, seminar, workshop, demonstration, case study, role play presentation and journal club are examples of small group methods in teaching-learning. Journal club (JC) helps to promote a face to face interaction between the members of the group and help to develop certain skills in them. JC is highly useful in various aspects of scientific education and research programmes. JC meetings can contribute very much to keep the pharmacy students and staff updated on recent issues, emerging trends and other areas of subjects and topics related to profession of pharmacy. The analysis of the working of JC in Amrita School of Pharmacy, Amrita University, Kochi, Kerala during the first two years of its existence helps to identify some of the positive changes it can make in the teaching learning process and the possible practical difficulties one can anticipate in the conductance of JC in a pharmacy teaching institution. It is the need of the time for every pharmacy institution to promote the JC as an effective tool for teaching-learning process.
