A Tool for Creating Snapshots of Faculty Contributions to Pharmacy Education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Most faculty members' contributions to pharmacy education are significant but often challenging to document and describe. In addition, contributions may go unrecognized or rewarded unless the work results in a publication or presentation. Drawing on a metaphor of the importance of a fisher taking a photo to capture memories of a successful fishing trip, this commentary examines methods for faculty to identify and organize their academic contributions. Frameworks and a visual tool are presented to assist pharmacy educators in thinking systematically about the full breadth of education contributions. Using the frameworks and visualization tool provided, a more complete picture of education contributions can be developed, allowing educators to create visual "snapshots" of their work for others to see and appreciate.
