CEHS Technology Grants - FY19

Digital Video use in the Training Program for Speech-Language Pathology
Beth Dinneen

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to purchase research grade video cameras and microphones for clinic rooms at the Barkley Speech Language and Hearing Clinic. The new equipment would allow for graduate students in the speech pathology program to record therapy sessions for self-evaluation and reflection on their developing clinical skills. The videos also can be shared with their clinical supervisors to facilitate specific real time in-depth teaching and learning in the area of critical thinking and clinical competence. In addition, captured videos can be utilized in undergraduate coursework for case-based instructional paradigms to improve the depth and breadth of understanding of the field of speech-language pathology.
