CAPCSD offers webinars throughout the year designed for administrators, faculty, and clinic directors. Our webinars let you interact live with knowledgeable instructors from the convenience of your desk, meeting room, or home.
LBTQIA+ People in CSD Education
Tuesday, September 22, 7:00pm - 8:30pm EST
This webinar will discuss unique stressors affecting educational and health outcomes for people in sexual orientation or gender minority groups. The resilience factors that can mitigate their effects will be explained using models of minority stress and barriers to care. Applications to our workplaces, classrooms, and clinics will be explored using interactive methods to demonstrate recommended methods for developing practitioner competency. Participants will assess whether their clinical and educational practices are inclusive and affirming for people in sexual orientation and gender minority groups, then learn basic criteria for competency in LGBTQIA+ sensitivity and inclusion, as well as best practices for teaching this competency.
Best Practices in Online Teaching, Part 2
Wednesday, September 23 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm ET
This session will provide additional best practices for online teaching. It will include strategies for assessing student learning (formative and summative), and techniques for creating accessible and inclusive course materials. The webinar is led by the University of Pittsburgh's School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Office of Online Learning (OOL). The OOL collaborates with faculty to design and develop fully-online courses and programs.
Considerations for Inclusive and Equitable Admissions Processes
Tuesday, October 6, 7:00pm EST
Is your Communication Sciences and Disorders program committed to creating a diverse cohort of students, not only in race, ethnicity, and gender, but also in lived experiences, socioeconomic status, and perspective? Register for this webinar and learn more about making changes to long-standing admissions processes and procedures. Identify how to implement inclusive and equitable admissions processes, grounded in evidence. The webinar will review how to understand our own implicit biases and facilitate changes that will ultimately result in a workforce that more closely reflects the world in which we live and the populations we serve.
Student Engagement in the Classroom
Wednesday, October 28, 7:00pm EST
Explore evidence-informed ways in which course instructors can actively engage their students in a variety of ways across course delivery modalities (e.g., face-to-face, hybrid, hyflex, online). The emphasis for this session will be on thinking about the possibilities that exist to connect with and engage with students to support their learning and attainment of course learning objectives.
