Course Overview

This seminar addresses professional writing, grant-writing, and presentation abilities needed by higher education faculty in personnel preparation programs in hearing, speech, and language sciences. Students analyze and evaluate manuscripts and articles that are either literature reviews or theoretically and/or empirically based position papers on timely issues in hearing, speech, and language sciences. They construct short articles that adhere to the American Psychological Association style format. In addition, students prepare media-enhanced presentations for a variety of professional audiences, including parent groups, teachers, school administrators, conferences attended by educational audiologists, organizations serving deaf and hard of hearing individuals, and researchers and scholars in hearing, speech, and language sciences, deaf education, and related fields.
