Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) was more than glad to partner with the Duke University Global Health Graduate Program in a pilot program that allowed five students from the Duke Kunshan University (DKU) campus in Kunshan, China to enroll in DUSON’s Health Promotion and Disease Prevention course.
Queen Utley-Smith was one of six Duke University faculty members selected for Duke support for their faculty-led projects that reflect the state of online education on campus and beyond. Online Duke, along with Provost Sally Kornbluth and the Office of Global Strategy and Programs, issued a call for proposals for projects that would add a global component to an instructor's teaching.
Utley-Smith was selected for her course "Health Promotion and Disease Prevention."
Queen Utley-Smith was recently featured in a Duke Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) blog article entitled "Globalizing an Online Nursing Course at Duke." The article discusses the partnership between CIT and Utley-Smith to redesign and implement a cross-cultural perspective to N502: Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, a graduate online course. The online course included students enrolled through Duke in Durham and Duke in China at Duke Kunshan University.
