ASHA Teaching Symposium on Foundational CSD Science Courses

May 17–28, 2021

ASHA’s Teaching Symposium on Foundational CSD Science Courses is an online learning event that will promote and enhance foundational education in the CSD sciences using evidence-based teaching strategies, including innovative instruction and high-impact learning practices for a diverse group of learners. This teaching symposium is designed for faculty at any rank (including full-time, part-time, adjunct), doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows who teach or plan to teach foundational CSD science courses such as the following:

  • hearing, speech, or language science
  • anatomy and physiology, neuroanatomy, or neuroscience
  • phonetics, acoustics, psychoacoustics, or speech perception/production
  • any CSD course with a strong science foundation

The CSD Teaching Symposium on Foundational CSD Science Courses will be held online and will offer asynchronous and synchronous learning and networking opportunities for all registered attendees. In addition, registrants will have the opportunity to participate in a year-long learning community for networking and sharing information about the application of evidence-based course design and teaching principles during the 2021–2022 academic year.


Faculty at any rank, doctoral students, and post-doctoral fellows who currently teach or will be teaching CSD science-related courses within 1 year of participation are eligible to attend. Examples of CSD science courses include hearing science, speech science, language science, anatomy and physiology, neuroanatomy, phonetics, acoustics, psychoacoustics, speech perception/production, and any CSD course with a strong emphasis on foundational CSD sciences.
