Regional conference features presentation by Radford COSD faculty
Two faculty from Radford University’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (COSD) presented at the Southeast University Clinical Education Conference (SEUCE) in Athens, Georgia on Sept. 28-29.
Instructors Rebecca Epperly and Terri Shelor co-presented “Think outside the plan: remediation successes and failures” before the gathering of more than 50 colleagues who are graduate level clinical directors and supervisors for speech-hearing-language pathologist (SLP) candidates from Virginia to Texas.
“The clinical environment is challenging,” said Shelor. “Remediation plans are unique and evolve from good feedback and interaction.”
The hour-long presentation, one of 12 featured at the SEUCE annual conference, was derived from experience gained by Epperly and Shelor and presented in a series of case studies.
“Our objective is to develop competent professionals,” said Epperly. “It can be challenging to provide constructive, honest feedback that helps students who are bright high-achievers and who have done well in the competitive classroom environment.”
