Abstract

Both evidence and theory should inform curricular design in pharmacy education. Learning involves acquiring knowledge, skills, and competence. Although many learning theories exist and are incorporated in pharmacy education, adult learning theories may be one of the most useful, given that pharmacy students exhibit characteristics of adult learners. Comparing the role of traditional and adult learning theories offers practical applications of such theories in pharmacy education and helps to establish relevancy for adult learners.
