As part of the effort to improve college students’ success and completion, The National Campaign has published free online lessons that will help students prevent unplanned pregnancy. The lessons are designed to help students understand the impact of unplanned pregnancy on their educational goals, their social lives, their significant relationships, and their finances. Students learn about various birth control methods; select the most appropriate method(s) for their values, lifestyles, and relationships; and create an action plan to decrease their chances of unplanned pregnancy. In the webinar, the authors will give a brief demonstration of the lessons and provide helpful information about how instructors can incorporate them into first-year experience, college success, and other courses. In addition, two instructors who piloted the lessons this past spring semester will share their experiences and the feedback they received from students.
