Health Research Methods Course for Undergraduate Students

TitleHealth Research Methods Course for Undergraduate Students
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

This project will adapt a previously developed and piloted a post-graduate Distributed Health Research Methods Course (DHRMC) to make it applicable for undergraduate health discipline students. The newly adapted course will be piloted and evaluated with summer research undergraduate health discipline students. Additionally, this project will promote the uptake of DHMRC as an accredited component of undergraduate health discipline curricula by FLEX and Foundations of Scholarship, College of Health Disciplines, and UBC School of Nursing. The course adaptations will include modifying group face-to-face exercises to facilitated online discussions, students’ peer-review of assignments, and creating Creative Commons licenses so that all material is publicly available.
