Personal Reflection: Reflections on a Family Health History Assignment for Undergraduate Public Health and Nursing Students
Rooks, Ronica N.; Ford, Cassandra
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v7 n1 Article 21 Jan 2013
This personal reflection describes our experiences with incorporating the scholarship of teaching and learning and problem-based techniques to facilitate undergraduate student learning and their professional development in the health sciences. We created a family health history assignment to discuss key concepts in our courses, such as health disparities, culture, and cultural competency in patient, provider, and health care team interactions. In this essay we share how we were able to listen to students' needs regarding the assignment and make improvements based on their feedback. This was an iterative process where we learned as much as our students by remaining flexible and receptive to students' unique circumstances.
