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.


Module 1: The Importance of Clinical Education

This module will provide you with an understanding of the importance of clinical education in speech-language pathology and audiology graduate programs. You will review the current landscape and consider national initiatives related to the clinical education process, in particular, the recognition of clinical education as a distinct subset of knowledge and skills deserving of targeted professional training. You will explore current national standards, practice documents and guidelines related to clinical education. In addition, you will be introduced to several technology tools that we will use in this course to bring participants together in a learning community despite this course’s self-paced format. You will begin using the Participant Workbook that accompanies this course to help you reflect on what you have learned, identify areas for improvement, and strategize ways to take action. Lastly, you will take a short quiz to check your learning.

Module 2: Roles and Responsibilities in the Clinical Education Process

In this module, you will be introduced to the stakeholders and their roles in the clinical education process. You will consider ways in which the “web of supervision” applies to your experiences in clinical education. You will also begin to explore ways to adjust methods and expectations based on the needs of the stakeholders. On a practical level, you will be introduced to several concrete assessment tools that may help you nurture and define your relationship with your supervises. You will continue to reflect on and document your learning in your Participant Workbook and check your understanding of key points from this module in a short quiz.

Module 3: Knowledge and Skills for Effective Clinical Education

In this module, you will focus on the specific knowledge and skills needed to be an effective clinical instructor. These will include skills like the ability to assess a student’s knowledge and evaluate their performance, and the harder to measure skills that define how we relate personally to others and the world around us. You will also take some time to consider the role of ethics and cultural competency in your supervisory role. This module’s activities will put your skills to the test as you engage in highly practical skill analysis and application.

Module 4: Methods of Clinical Education

This module describes some of the most relevant and heavily utilized models of supervision. These methods of supervision range from the highly controlled, directive supervision to much less hands-on methods. Special attention is paid to Anderson’s Continuum Model of Supervision. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your own supervision methods in the activities and continue to use your Participant Workbook to record your thoughts and focus your professional growth.

Module 5: Evidence-Based Principles in Clinical Education

Just as we strive to apply evidence-based practices in our clinical work, we can strive to apply evidence-based approaches and tools in our clinical teaching activities. There is a wealth of research literature on clinical education across health professions in fields such as nursing, medicine, athletic training, physical therapy, and many others. Studies from these disciplines have clear relevance to clinical education in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Many of these studies demonstrate that certain approaches and tools are likely to yield better student learning outcomes. This module will cover the nature of this research and the common areas of study across health professions education. Many of these research findings will be immediately applicable to your clinical teaching practices.
