A grant-funded community project was embedded into the graduate informatics curriculum that enabled students to acquire workforce experience and skills. The faculty collaborated with the local hospital and senior community center on a grant to educate seniors on using health technologies. This innovative experience blended theory and application to engage students in an active learning environment. Students applied the systems development life cycle, problem-solving and critical thinking skills to plan and execute a real-world project.
