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).
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
