Poster presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, Monday, November 18, 2013

Innovative uses of service learning as an instructional pedagogy in nursing courses continue today (Reising, Shea,  Allen, Laux, Hensel & Watts, 2008). Integrating service learning into non-clinical courses is not usually discussed. Yet, adding service learning to a didactic course could bring a higher level of interest and energy to the course design. Expanding student's level of cultural competency is another reason to integrate service learning into courses (Amerson, 2010). Attempting to add creativity and real world experience to a graduate level Curriculum Development course, a service learning component has been added over the last 2 years with statistically significant results. How this idea was conceived, carried forth and evaluated will be shared and discussed. Two unique and iinternationally related student group curriculum projects will be discussed. Creating nursing courses to bring to Africa as well as designing a missionary nursing student trip to Haiti are two of the student projects that will be highlighted in depth. The process of bringing these programs forward, innovative teaching methods, use of reflection and class participation will be shared. Positive changes in student evaluations (quantitative and qualitative) from before this addition, to afterwards, will also be presented. Lastly, community feedback from constituents who viewed the presentations will also be shared. the effectiveness of integrating service learning into didactic courses will be emphasized.
