Pharmacy technician instructors may use a variety of teaching strategies, as different students may prefer different styles of teaching. If an entire class seems to be struggling with material, these instructors must review it for ease of understanding and should determine if a new strategy is necessary. Teaching aids such as as slideshows, pictures, notes, and diagrams may be used, and they also administer examinations, projects, and homework. It's important that they keep complete and organized records to determine students' progress in these classes.
Records such as grades, attendance, and progress reports must be maintained on a regular basis, and in some cases these instructors are provided with a pre-approved syllabus and lesson plan to administer to the class. In other cases, they must personally develop these plans based on necessary competencies for students, and these materials should be based on standards established by the school as well as local, state, and federal guidelines.
