Entrenching Empathy: Implementation of a Service-Learning...

This presentation discusses the conception, implementation and the aspirations of the School of Health Sciences (HS) Service-Learning (S-L) ecosystem. This programme starts with an “Empathy Challenge” in the freshmen orientation and is followed by classes (modules) that are designated S-L modules in the Year 1- 3 curricula of the Diplomas in Nursing (NSG) and Optometry (OPT). The pilot studies of the effectiveness of S-L in these modules will be discussed as part of the discussion on the HS S-L eco-system.
