Designing Community-based Learning Nutrition Programs to Enhance Student Engagement

A session at Priester National Health Extension Conference

Tuesday 16th April, 2013

10:50am to 11:50am (PST)

Gone are the days of just sitting in a lecture hall. Students need the opportunity to learn, practice, and apply specific knowledge and skills in a more relevant way. Community-based learning puts an emphasis on experiential learning nutrition activities while addressing real issues in the community. It gives students the opportunity to have an impact on local health problems and to see the relevance of academics. Strategies such as academically-based community service, civic education, environmental education, and service learning will be explored, along with examples of how these strategies have been successfully implemented at the University of Kentucky.
