Personal profile


Dr Kenneth Lee is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice. Dr Lee was the 2015 Western Australian Young Pharmacist of the Year. He is a practising community pharmacist, educator, and researcher. Dr Lee is passionate about integrating teaching, research, and professional practice.

Dr Lee's teaching and research practices draw on information behaviour theories and models, and theories in educational psychology such as the cognitive load theory. His teaching and research is at the intersection of health information behaviour, education (patient, student, and health professional), and technology. Specifically, Dr Lee is interested in understanding how patients and health professions students learn about health-related information, and how best to support their learning; and how modern technologies can facilitate or hinder health-related information acquisition, information processing, decision-making, and learning.

Dr Lee completed both a PhD (2015) and a Bachelor of Pharmacy with Honours (2010) at Curtin University in Western Australia. Before joining the University of Western Australia, Dr Lee worked as a sessional tutor at Curtin University, and then as a Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice at the University of Tasmania. Since registering as a pharmacist (late 2011), Dr Lee has continued to practice as a community pharmacist. He has taught across a variety of subject areas, including research methods, pathophysiology, extemporaneous compounding, and has extensive experience in teaching pharmacy practice at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Dr Lee's teaching and research interests are supported by his PhD research on consumers' online health information-seeking behaviours, his honours research on the use of electronic portfolios to support authentic assessments for pharmacy students, and his experiences with creating/co-creating various social media channels for health professionals and students.
