Background and Learning Objectives

May 17–May 28, 2021 | Online Conference

About the CSD Science Teaching Symposium

The 2015 Academic Affairs Board Report on the Role of Undergraduate Education [PDF] and the 2015-2018 Strategic Plan to Increase the Student Pipeline and Workforce for PhD Researchers and Faculty Researchers [PDF] recommended enhancing foundational CSD science preparation and a means for sharing innovations and best teaching practices among faculty who currently teach CSD science courses or who may teach them in the future. 

The Teaching Symposium on Foundational CSD Science Courses aims to

  • assemble a community of faculty for the exchange of knowledge and pedagogical information about foundational CSD science courses;
  • provide CSD faculty the opportunity for guided learning and to develop plans in consultation with experts and peers to advance teaching of the CSD sciences; and
  • establish a learning community that can be sustained beyond the symposium. This could include, for example, curriculum and teaching practices, innovative instruction, and alternative models for delivery of quality education in the basic science foundations of the disciplines.

Learning Outcomes

After attending the teaching symposium, participants will be able to do all of the following:

  1. Describe the foundations of evidence-based pedagogy for teaching CSD science courses.
  2. Identify three strategies for incorporating active learning, student engagement, co-curricular experiences, and other high-impact learning practices within CSD science courses.
  3. Develop a plan for implementing high-impact teaching practices into undergraduate and graduate CSD foundational sciences courses and the translational relevance across audiology and speech-language pathology curricula.
