Description

Service Learning is a pedagogy that integrates classroom instruction with community service, focusing on critical thinking and civic responsibility. Through a federal Department of Health and Human Services grant, nutrition students were taken on a supermarket tour and shown how to grocery shop according to dietary guidelines. Students then went out into the campus community and shared skills they had learned. As a result of this project, students reported improved nutrition knowledge and confidence.
