I am a previous SLP reentering the field after years at home raising a family. The program he is presenting will be so helpful to me as I refresh myself.

The program being developed is aimed at improving student training - I like his idea. It would have benefited me back in the day...

Totally new information
Review by: Patricia on December 31, 2013
The course covered components that are of concern especially to university settings such as acquisition of clinical clock hours for observation and who will assign those clock hours (therefore, view the posted video feeds does not automatically correspond to acquisition of clinical clock hours).
Review by: Catherine on November 1, 2013
The overall premise made total sense. I had never really considered this aspect of clinical training before
Review by: Dahlia on November 1, 2013
Interesting information about a novel concept taht could be used by students and other professionals.
Review by: Kathryn on October 28, 2013
I had no idea this network was available and as a clinician in my 4th year, this is precisely the time I am still searching for ways to improve my clinical practice. The course was organized, stayed on topic, and material is relevant and applicable to practice.
Review by: Penny on October 19, 2013
I can sure see the potential for this program and plan to share this information with the SLPA program with which I am affiliated! I have an SLPA student coming to shadow me this week...would have been more efficient for her to watch at her home as part of her online program and not have to take a day off of work!

Review by: Shirley on June 22, 2013
It made me aware of something I had never heard of.
Review by: David on March 17, 2013
The start up of a great new clinical tool with application to student training and professional development.
Review by: Dwight on February 12, 2013
I'm glad to know about this network. I've been an SLP for 33 years and I still feel the need to check with master clinicians so I can recalibrate if necessary.
Review by: Robyn on January 6, 2013
I could completely identify with what the presenter was saying about the observation issues, as I had experienced most of them myself when I was a student. I also liked being able to 'tour' the website during the presentation and even watch a video!
Review by: Tricia on January 2, 2013
Innovative Ideas!
Review by: Harriet on December 19, 2012

Review by: Amanda on November 21, 2012
Wonderful idea!! Wish this had been around when I was completing observation hours.

Current information
Review by: Courtney on June 6, 2012
clear, well presented information - efficient and did not spend too much time on one point or example
Review by: Marie on April 27, 2012
This presentation was well presented and forward thinking. Much apreciated.
Review by: Cynthia on April 18, 2012
Great concept. Would like to have seen more examples of clinical practice.
Review by: Rochelle on March 26, 2012
Video was poor quality and too brief. The overall structure of how the program will work would have been better presented in diagram format. It is very exciting but the presentation was some what dull.
Review by: Tana on January 10, 2012
The idea is an excellent one. I started grad school in 1993 just as the new 25 hour requirement was introduced. Arranging to visit outside clinicians was difficult with my schedule and workload, and observing other grad students taught me little. This is a great solution!
Review by: Sherry on December 31, 2011
Excellent idea especially for those of us who have little opportunity for peer review.
Review by: Jan on December 17, 2011
Great to see advances in the field to promote collaboration among professionals to support excellent therapuetic interactions for our clients.
Review by: Stephanie on December 2, 2011
Information is useful for current job situation.
Review by: Elaine on November 25, 2011

Review by: Elizabeth on October 30, 2011
