SIG 10 Perspectives Vol. 17, No. 1, June 2013
This issue of Perspectives focuses on the topics of clinical instruction, instructor social networking practices and community service learning projects. Duthie and Robbins investigate the efficacy of the Clinical Directed Hierarchy, which is a systematic approach to clinical instruction aimed at developing clinical techniques and promoting independent decision-making in students. Plumb describes the results of a national survey investigating the social networking practices of university faculty in communication disorders to determine their perspectives on the use of social networking as a tool for assisting student learning. Kosky and Schlisselberg discuss a community service learning model that promotes senior citizens’ oral discussion skills in group settings such as community-based and residential facilities. Lastly, Allman describes a community service learning project that provides literacy tutoring in a community afterschool program as a piece of an undergraduate literacy course.
