Using online resources, you'll engage in the study of the anatomy and physiology of each system included in the speech and hearing mechanisms, including terminology / terms-of-orientation, neurology, respiration, phonation, articulation, resonance, and hearing systems. As a primary goal, you'll solidify applications of these systems to speech, hearing, and language processes.
You will have access to online resources such as discussion boards to facilitate discussions between you, the instructor, instructional interns, and fellow students. In addition, you'll have access to study guides, links referencing concepts or structures, review games, powerpoint resource slides, unit introduction-overview documents, and diagrams. Video segments from face-to-face discussions and activities will also be streamed to the online site.
The instructor and instructional interns will hold regular, online-interactive office hours, and we will have regular 'Ask the Professor' discussion forums. Assessment includes completion of study guides, participation in discussion forums, unit synthesis summaries, and online exams.
