CAPCSD eLearning Courses

The Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) has developed a series of self-paced, online course modules focused on the process of clinical education. These courses were developed as part of CAPCSD’s mission to provide visionary leadership for academic programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders and to promote the professional development of its constituents. Clinical instruction is a vital component of the education of audiology and speech-language pathology students. Through high-quality and dynamic readings, multimedia offerings and reflective activities, participants will gain a richer understanding of the role of clinical education in graduate programs.

These courses are provided at no cost to CAPCSD member programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). Member programs are encouraged to share access to these resources with individuals engaged in the clinical instruction of graduate students in on-campus and off-campus sites.

The materials are at an introductory to intermediate level. Continuing education units are available through ASHA or AAA. Additional course offerings are being developed.

Available courses:

Foundations of Clinical Education – Clinical instruction is a vital component of the education of audiology and speech-language pathology students. Through high-quality and dynamic readings, multimedia offerings and reflective activities, participants will gain a richer understanding of the role of clinical education in graduate programs, with specific emphasis on the role of quality clinical instruction and clinical instructor/student relationships.

Effective Student-Clinical Educator Relationships – Effective student-clinical educator relationships are essential for the education of audiology and speech-language pathology students. Through high-quality and dynamic readings, multimedia offerings and reflective activities, participants will gain a richer understanding of the relationship dynamics between clinical educators and their students in graduate programs, with specific emphasis on fostering relationship skills as they pertain to clinical education.

Audience:

These courses are intended for CAPCSD member programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) to provide continuing education for individuals engaged in the clinical instruction of graduate students in on-campus and off-campus sites.
