Research Applications in Clinical Education (RACE)

Focus of Lab

The American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) has challenged graduate programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders to demonstrate the acquisition of specific knowledge and skills of our graduate students as they matriculate through their academic coursework and clinical education. The research conducted in the RACE lab concerns itself with assessing the efficacy and efficiency, along with assessment of learning outcomes of various models of clinical education, supervision, and service delivery. Recent investigations explore the use of virtual simulations for interprofessional education and clinical skill training.
