PLEASE NOTE:

The CAPCSD Clinical Educator eLearning Courses are on the move and will not be available until late October.

The four CAPCSD Clinical Educator eLearning courses are moving to a new digital home! The same great information will be available in each course, but packaged in a new, streamlined format for your use.  During the transition, the courses will not be available. Updates will be provided with Information from CAPCSD regarding how to resume using the courses when they are open on the new platform.

 

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.

Audience

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.

Each course contains five (5) modules.  Contact hours / CEUs vary, please review the specific course information to see the time for each module.

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.

Feedback in the Clinical Education Environment

Feedback is a critical component of the clinical education process in audiology and speech-language pathology. Through high-quality and dynamic readings, multimedia offerings and reflective activities, participants will gain a richer understanding of the principles and practice of effective feedback, with specific emphasis on evidence-based approaches to delivering feedback in the clinical learning environment.

Assessing Student Performance

Assessment is a key component of the clinical education process in audiology and speech-language pathology. Through high-quality and dynamic readings, multimedia offerings and reflective activities, participants will gain a richer understanding of the principles and practice of effective feedback, with specific emphasis on evidence-based approaches to delivering feedback in the clinical learning environment.

eLearning Course Dissemination Toolkit for Member Programs

Sample documents to help you share the courses with your community clinical educators.

Council for Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) is pleased to offer tools for member programs to disseminate information to their clinical preceptors/educators/supervisors about the opportunity to participate in a series of Clinical Education/Supervision eLearning Courses! These courses were developed by CAPCSD to provide continuing education to clinical educators, preceptors, and supervisors associated with CAPCSD member programs. As a clinical preceptor/educator/supervisor of a CAPCSD-member graduate program in audiology and/or speech-language pathology, programs have access to these on-line courses at no charge! Four courses are currently available, each with five (5) modules. Each module may be completed independently of the others. Course modules will contain readings, video tutorials and interactive learning activities that you may complete on your own schedule. AAA and ASHA CEUs are available with successful completion of each course module.

Please feel free to personalize and use these documents to inform your clinical preceptors/educators/supervisors about this opportunity.

See below for more information about the enrollment codes.
