Linking Academia And Community Through Practice-based Teaching: A Case Study of a Communication Strategies Course And Its Impact

February 29 @ 11:30 am 1:30 pm

In Workshop #4 of the MCH CELL for Community-Partnered Teaching Series, we introduce how a five-step framework (PBT STEPS*) was used to guide the development of an MPH course on the design, implementation, and funding of an environmental-level intervention and communications campaign for community trauma in Winthrop, Massachusetts. The first part of the workshop describes the evolution of a partnership between the Winthrop Department of Public Health and Clinical Services (WDPH) and Boston University School of Public Health, and walks through each phase of PBT STEPS as applied to the community trauma example including: S -securing partnerships with WPHD and configuring the semester to result in success T – technology and training to ensure active engagement through different technologies E – engagement and implementation of the course including tailoring deliverables P – presenting course deliverables (papers and communication materials) and a grant for funding S -sizing up results including qualitative data on the utility, benefits, and challenges of the course and quantitative data through the learning management system and surveys from an alumni perspective. In the second part of the workshop, we will ask participants to share either issues facing their communities that need to be addressed or courses that could be delivered as practice-based, work through in real-time methods to address course competencies through current problem statements, illustrate the delivery of PBT in practice, and discuss the benefits to all stakeholders by using this pedagogy.
