|Year 1: Summary|
An interprofessional team of students and faculty will develop and pilot test an online course entitled Walk n’ Talk for your Life. Formatted as a web-based implementation toolkit, this course will provide a cross disciplinary platform engaging students, faculty, and community agencies in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to plan, implement and evaluate a community-based health education, exercise and socialization intervention for seniors. The series of eLearning modules will include informative videos, quizzes, a discussion board and interactive components detailing how to effectively implement the intervention.
Working within a cross-disciplinary team to develop and pilot the course, students will gain and hone their ability to communicate and collaborate while broadening their capacity for critical thinking and problem solving. The course will benefit any students required to do a community-based project by helping them to better understand interprofessional teamwork and how to be good communicators and health advocates.
