APPLIED LEARNING COURSES

Applied learning refers to an educational approach whereby students learn by engaging in direct application of skills, theories and models.

Students apply knowledge and skills gained from traditional classroom learning to hands-on and/or real-world settings, creative projects or independent or directed research, and in turn apply what is gained from the applied experience to academic learning. The applied learning activity can occur outside of the traditional classroom experience and/or be embedded as part of a course.

ACOM 465 - Communication Campaign Practicum
A COM 465 Studies in Communication Theory (3) Study of a selected topic in communication theory; e.g., nonverbal communication, consistency theory, or mass communication. May be repeated for a total of 15 credits when content varies. Prerequisite(s): A COM 265, and junior or senior standing.

Service Learning Component:
Communication Campaign Practicum in Collaboration with the Center for Donation and Transplant The partnership between the Department of Communication at UAlbany and the Center for Donation and Transplant (CDT) originated in a research project that was carried out with funding from the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) from August 2003 to July 2006. The Department of Communication was part of a consortium composed of the New York Alliance for Donation, the University of Buffalo, and the University at Albany to study processes and outcomes of students' carrying out a campaign during the spring semester each year aimed at increasing awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donations. Registrations for the Donate Life New York State Registry were collected through the campaign course, COM465, on behalf of the CDT. The students who participated in planning, organizing, executing, and evaluating the campaigns were very successful both in learning the process of campaigning and in increasing the number of people who signed the registry.

When the research component of the project ended in 2006, CDT wanted the course to continue, and they took over the funding of the campaign course in order to continue to promote awareness of the importance of donation. Their first sponsorship of the course was in spring 2008. (The course was funded in spring 2007 with a no-cost extension from the HRSA grant.)
