Rush Engaged Over 370 Students By Gathering Powerful Reflection Videos

At the end of their Interprofessional Education course through Rush University, students were asked to reflect upon what they learned from their community health mentor by recording a video or sharing a written piece around how learning what matters most to older adults leads to better care. 54% of students opted to record a video vs. sharing a written reflection. The powerful video reflections helped assess the students' understanding of an age-friendly health system and gave Rush authentic and valuable content that they published on their Schaalman Senior Voices website to further educate the larger Chicago community and advocate for the needs of older adults.

Rush Encouraged Students to Record Videos to Share Their Experience

Before Gather Voices

Rush’s Center for Excellence in Aging wanted to understand what students in their IPE training course took away from the course. They needed to provide simple options for students to share their course reflections and they knew that many students prefer to communicate with video rather than text.

Using Gather Voices

Gather Voices’ Video Relationship Management software empowered the team to: 

  • Have teachers to share a direct video request link on Blackboard, the students’ online learning tool
  • Seamless collect 379 user-generated reflection videos from students quickly, affordably and simply
  • Save an estimated $70,000 compared to the cost of traditional video production 
  • Produce valuable, engaging content for the Schaalman Senior Voices website, to further educate the community and advocate for the cause

Jasmine Chandy, Program Coordinator at Rush University Medical Center, said “Gather Voices’ user-friendly nature is what made the process so accessible for both the students, teachers, and program coordinators like herself.”
