Development, Management, and Evaluation of Undergraduate Experiential Learning: Recommendations for Best Practices

Melissa Pangelinan, Marc Norcross, Megan MacDonald, Mary Rudisill, Danielle Wadsworth, and James McDonald

Experiential learning provides undergraduate students rich opportunities to enhance their knowledge of core concepts in kinesiology. Beyond these outcomes, it enables students to gain exposure to, build empathy for, and affect the lives of individuals from diverse populations. However, the development, management, and systematic evaluation of experiential learning vary drastically across programs. Thus, the purpose of this review was to critically evaluate the experiential-learning programs at Auburn University and Oregon State University with respect to best practices outlined by the National Society for Experiential Education. The authors provide examples of lessons learned from these two programs to help others improve the implementation and impact of undergraduate experiential learning.

The Effect of Insurance Type on Time to Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in Pediatric Patients: A Critically Appraised Topic

Alexis P. Tucker, Marc F. Norcross, Kimberly S. Hannigan, and Samuel T. Johnson

Clinical Scenario: Delay in surgery for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries increases the risk of complications including secondary injuries. Previous research has shown individuals with public insurance have greater delays in care for a variety of health conditions. Clinical Question: In pediatric patients with ACL injuries, is the time from injury to surgery longer for patients with public insurance than patients with private insurance? Summary of Key Findings: Four studies met the inclusion criteria. All studies reported a greater wait time for surgery in pediatric patients with public insurance. Clinical Bottom Line: There is moderate evidence indicating that there is a delay in ACL surgery for pediatric patients with public insurance compared to those with private insurance. Strength of Recommendation: Grade B evidence exists that there is a delay in surgery for ACL injuries in pediatric patients with public insurance compared to those with private insurance.
