Although health sciences educators use service learning as a teaching strategy, it is not known how many are using this strategy in undergraduate and graduate programs.
The survey will take approximately 10-20 minutes of your time. The data obtained through the survey will provide important information about:
- How health sciences faculty are involved in service-learning;
- The nature of service-learning, such as teaching and reflection strategies;
- The specific elements that health sciences faculty identify as challenging to, and supportive of, their use of service-learning;
- Student learning and development outcomes that health sciences faculty expect; and
- The personal and professional impacts health sciences faculty experience due to their use of service-learning.
You will not be asked to attach your name to your survey responses. Individual responses will be used for research purposes only and will be strictly confidential. Any information from the study that is published will not include verbatim comments and will be aggregated.
You may have the opportunity to reflect on your experiences as a faculty member, which may enhance self-understanding.
