The goal of the multifaceted teaching innovation was to actively involve students in their learning, facilitating attitudinal changes as well as behavioral changes. Students learnt by assuming diverse roles during the semester. As instructors, students were responsible for teaching a class topic. As health educators, students went into the community to teach and encourage health promotion and disease prevention. As presenters, students presented their community projects to faculty and other students. As researchers, students explored patients' expectations and how pharmacists can meet these expectations. As potential role models, students assessed their unhealthy behaviors and chose to stop one of the unhealthy behavior by the end of the semester. As authors, students worked on several papers, including a report of their research investigation. Evaluative data from the innovation confirm that the learning objectives for the class were achieved with the multifaceted learning approach.
