Using Active Learning Activities to Enhance Deep Learning in a Community/Public Health Nursing Course

July 01, 2022  / Cindy Farris, Ph.D., RN, CNE 

The Lucas Center supports faculty teaching, scholarship and service by funding attendance and presentations at conferences and other forms of professional development. In Summer 2022, Associate Professor, Cindy Farris, Ph.D., RN, CNE was awarded funding to utilize toward the Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) Annual Conference. To learn more about Cindy's opportunity, please see her blurb and PowerPoint below.

Association of Community Health Nurse Educators holds a yearly Annual Institute.  This year the yearly conference was held in Alexandria Virginia from June 9-11 in a hybrid format. This yearly meeting allows for Community and Public Health Nurse Educators (mostly from academic settings) to meet, learn and network about the ever changing world of community and public health nursing. I was honored to have my abstract accepted and this allowed me to present to my fellow peers on active learning strategies that I use in my own classroom.
