Audiology preceptors who supervise doctoral students during on-campus and off-campus rotations are often faced with students who demonstrate appropriate foundation knowledge of clinical test procedures but without commensurate skill in differential diagnostic skills or self-confidence in clinical application. This course will discuss teaching and learning taxonomy and how it can be applied to clinical learning, using the ART as a model.
Course created on May 15, 2019
- After this course, participants will be able to describe how teaching and learning taxonomy can be used to help students who may have an understanding of clinical testing but have difficulty with the analysis and creativity required for clinical application.
- After this course, participants will be able to describe how issues with ART equipment and terminology may result in miscommunication of ART results for both novice and experienced audiologists.
- After this course, participants will be able to describe ways in which preceptors can guide students in differential diagnosis, especially when patient ART results differ from expected "textbook" results.
- After this course, participants will be able to list terms used to identify the ART test and the prevalence & currency of these terms and this test procedure.
