Kirsten Peterson and Valerie Weagle will present Promoting Best Practices in Clinical Education through Online Professional Development at the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) Annual Conference. Participants are asked to bring their laptops and experience a hands-on exploration of CAPCSD’s new self-paced online professional development courses: Foundations of Clinical Education and Effective Student-Clinical Educator Relationships. The courses are being developed as part of CAPCSD’s mission to provide visionary leadership for academic programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and are provided at no cost to member programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). The self-paced format provides a flexible and dynamic online learning program to enable on-campus faculty and offcampus personnel, no matter where they live, to access high-quality materials to support the clinical education of graduate students.
