Each year, CAPCSD committees and board work together to present one to two academies which take place the week of the annual conference. These academies are selected based on member needs, funding, meeting space availability, and alignment with the strategic plan. Academies include the Lisa Scott Leadership Academy, Clinical Educators' Academy, Admissions Summit, and DEI Academy. CAPCSD offers the academies to individuals from member programs who are each required to submit an application which will be reviewed by the overseeing committee. Academy participants will be able to develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities in the focused area, network with other CSD professionals in the academy, and often will have pre-academy assi

gnments and post-academy opportunities to continue the learning and sharing with academy participants.

eLearning Courses - Clinical Education

CAPCSD developed four self-paced, online courses focused on the process of clinical education. These courses 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 online courses at no charge.

On January 1, 2025, CAPCSD will sunset the eLearning Courses. Development of alternative clinical educator resources is in progress.

CAPCSD webinars provide an opportunity to stay up-to-date on trends and evidence-based practices targeted for CSD administrators, clinicians, faculty, and Ph.D. students.

ASHA CE Provider Approval and use of the Brand Block does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products or clinical procedures. This text serves to protect the Provider and ASHA. ASHA Approved CE Providers represent divergent philosophies and procedures. In professions as diverse as speech-language pathology and audiology, it is the responsibility of each professional to stay informed, to reflect on information and experiences presented in CE offerings, and to make educated judgments about information presented using their professional training, experience, critical thinking, and informed opinion. Professionals must be responsible for making informed decisions about the philosophical and procedural paths best suited for their professional practice. It has been and continues to be, the policy of the ASHA Continuing Education Board to approve CE Providers, not course content, products, or procedures. In fairness to participants, this statement serves to apprise them of this policy.
