Starts at 3:00 PM · Ends at 4:00 PM, EDT (America/New_York)


This presentation takes the participants through a unique and innovative community health education course. This uses an e-hybrid model of service learning where the course is fully online, but the service-learning projects are on ground at a physical location. Another interesting feature of this course is an option for a photovoice project to depict community needs.


Participants will learn about:

  • creating and implementing a service-learning course in an online environment
  • best practices in using reflections of service-learning work
  • application of photo-voice in a fully online environment
