ABSTRACT: Philosophy courses are hallmarks for research-focused doctoral nursing programs. They help students develop inductive reasoning to build critical thinking skills, but students often find them dry and boring and have difficulty developing enthusiasm for the material. Students in an online EdD in Nursing Education program were able to engage with philosophical topics meaningfully by designing and facilitating creative peer-learning activities. To assess the realization of learning outcomes, participating students completed a survey at the end of the module. Five of the six participants (83 percent) indicated they agreed or strongly agreed that the activities helped meet course learning outcomes.
