Presenter: Christi Navarro, Ph.D., M.S., Assistant Professor, Department of Public Health, Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine
Description: It is not uncommon for educators to assign semester- or weeks-long projects giving students ample time to plan and execute, only to realize that many students choose to complete the assignment the night before the due date. Although the results may vary in the quality of submissions, the intent of educators to have students synthesize course content over the span of the semester may fall flat. The objective of this session is to present a multi-faceted portfolio project that will meaningfully engage students and synthesize course concepts from the onset.
