Professional Development

CAPCSD offers a wide range of professional development opportunities for its member programs, including the Annual Conference, the Lisa Scott Leadership Academy, and eLearning courses on clinical education.

In addition, CAPCSD offers webinars for professional development addressing specific topics for administrators, faculty, and PhD students. Live webinars are available for CEU credit, and all webinars are recorded and provided to registrants who are unable to attend the live sessions. Coming in the fall of 2020, webinars will also be offered on demand. As an additional resource, CAPCSD has introduced podcasts on Simulations, Standardized Patients, and Telepractice, and more, all available on the CAPCSD website.

Finally, with the January 1, 2020, ASHA certification maintenance requirement of 0.10 ethics education for each 3-year renewal cycle, CAPCSD is positioned to offer ethics education unique to academic and clinical environments. Courses on ethics in administration, the classroom, and clinical supervision are being developed as webinars and on demand formats and will offer ASHA CEUs.

Conference

Audience

The CAPCSD annual conference is held in a major US city every spring. Over the past 41 years, it has gained a reputation as being the leading site for collaborating, connecting, and exploring issues in our field. The conference, based heavily on attendee feedback, is designed to offer sessions that inform administrators on hot topics, whether you are a Dean, Chair, Program Director or Clinic Director. Every year, we are pleased to offer engaging sessions from the leaders of the field. In addition, the conference receives numerous call-for-papers proposals, which adds to the diversity and dynamic of the available sessions. The conference is also designed to create a fun and social environment that encourages networking and interaction among attendees.

The Lisa Scott Leadership Academy

As part of its mission to provide visionary leadership for academic programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders and to promote the professional development of its constituents, the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) continues to offer a program to help individuals considering academic leadership positions, or who are newly engaged in academic leadership, develop their knowledge and skills in the area of leadership.
