BingocizeTM: Successful Integration of Intergenerational Service-Learning into an Exercise Science Practicum Project

Jason Crandall


Intergenerational service-learning was used to meet course learning outcomes for an exercise science practicum while increasing older adults’ physical activity participation. Five practicum students researched, planned, and executed a combination bingo and exercise program (BingocizeTM) twice per week (45-60 minutes sessions) at a low-income independent living facility located near campus. The results of the program were positive as evidenced by achievement of student learning outcomes and improvements in older adults’ overall well-being.
