Issue Date: 2022-05
Abstract: Introduction The "Open Educational Resources" (OER) labels teaching, learning and research materials in any medium (digital or not), which is available, released under an open license that permits free access or use (1). In this presentation, it will be described the use of the OER produced in Faculty of Pharmacy of U.Porto in two collaborative Erasmus+ projects: TOX-OER (Learning Toxicology through Open Educational Resources), finished in 2018 and OEMONOM (Open access Educational Materials on Naturally Occurring Molecules - sources, biological activity and use), in course. Both projects targets at preparation of comprehensible, free and easily available materials for professionals, students of biomedicinal disciplines as well as lay persons in areas included in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Method In both projects the OER materials were or have been prepared by common work of experts from different fields (pharmacologists, pharmacognosists, toxicologists, microbiologists, analytical chemists and E-learning experts). Results In TOX-OER project a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) ( in 7 languages was developed, which included a Pharmaco-Toxicokinetics module with 4 topics: ADMET, Membrane and Transport Mechanisms; Membrane Transporters and BBB; Absorption, Distribution, Excretion; and Xenobiotic Metabolism (1). In OEMONOM project, a review paper (2) on Khat (a recreational, chewed herbal drug) was published in open source that will be used as OER in a MOOC. Conclusions This presentation demonstrates the potential of using OER in Pharmacy Education, namely in Toxicology field.
