Engaging Undergraduate Students in Health Promotion and Education through Service Based Learning

April 17, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


This session will outline the benefits and challenges of service-based learning for undergraduate Health Promotion and Education students. Specifically, it will outline how in an undergraduate needs assessment course a community-based service learning approach was utilized. A fundamental principle of this process was that health educators do this process with people – not to them.

With a service and action learning approach, attention was given to developing and applying needs assessment skills to community health issues, teamwork in a collection, analysis, and interpretation of information, and the prioritization of health needs and resource allocation. Students were paired with a community partner to complete a real-world assessment within the community.

By navigating a real health assessment, students benefited from a deeper learning engaging experience. The community-based mentor and his/her organization benefited from the information collected that helped in their program planning and prioritization.
