Upcoming Webinars

Interested in integrating evidence based practice (EBP) into your course or curriculum, but not sure where to start? This webinar will provide an overview of EBP, an in-depth examination of Systematic Reviews (SRs), and examples of delivering EBP into both the curriculum and coursework. Attendees will be introduced to the EBP process, including: a review of the Population, Intervention, Comparison and Outcome (PICO) framework and other variations to forming a clinical question; the hierarchy of evidence, literature searches, including clinical search filters in PubMed; and critical appraisal. Special attention will be given to SRs, considered one of the highest levels of evidence. This webinar will provide an introduction to the different types of SRs (narrative, scoping, meta-analysis, etc.)and the SR process (define, search, select, code and write) while positioning the SR as a central tool for integrating EBP into the classroom and curriculum. Finally, the webinar will provide examples of how libraries and librarians can partner with SLP colleagues to further enhance and integrate EBP into the classroom and curriculum. Specific cases will be used to illustrate how a librarian can provide expert EBP support in the classroom and conduct curricular reviews and mapping projects to enhance programs at the curricular level.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the elements of evidence-based practice
  • Describe the elements of Systematic Reviews and how it can be used in the classroom.
  • Describe at least one way to integrate evidence-based practice into the classroom and curriculum.

Serving as an excellent mentor to Ph.D. students is crucial for the future of our discipline. Many of us can think of examples of both "good" and "bad" mentoring from our own graduate education experiences. However, there are strategies for mentorship that should be considered regardless of our past. This webinar addresses questions such as: How does good mentorship work? How do I promote good mentorship? And, what are some examples of good mentorship for Ph.D. students? Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share strategies for success.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will list three examples of good mentorship in the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders
  • Participants will list four ways to promote good mentorship within their own work
  • Participants will discuss intergenerational influences on mentorship
