Abstract (300 words maximum)

Directed study courses allow students to develop invaluable research skills and experience while under the direction of a faculty member. As an Integrative Studies major participating in a directed study course at Kennesaw State University (KSU), I have had the opportunity to reflect, understand, and apply interdisciplinary practices for research and writing while preparing and revising program development manuscripts. The manuscripts were part of a previous Human Services Program Evaluation course at KSU, where students, including myself, provided research and program ideas for the Cobb and Douglas Public Health (CDPH) community health assessment. Using autoethnography, a reflective practice in qualitative research, the manuscript transformation process has helped me develop a deeper understanding of the research and the challenges of different populations in Cobb and Douglas counties. This study discusses the process of transforming course work for community use and publication and the changes that have occurred through self-reflective writings as a researcher.
